After some testing I think I'm going to stick with the Naive Software crossfeed also. I don't know if I'm just imagining it but I have this feeling that Bauer takes some sparkle off the music.

Bs2b introduces a -3db gain to the music which is what I think people are taking for killing the sparkle. I still prefer bs2b though, its better documented and also versatile. The other cross-feed is pretty much "this is all you get". Obviously, tastes play a large role in how you want your sound so yay for choices.

There is also the channel mixer and dolby wrapper combination brought up in this thread.

IMO it is effective, but does change the sound more than other crossfeed plugins.

Checking it out. I have been using the other plug-in as well with Foobar.

Edit: Is there no way to change the level of crossfeed any more or doesn't it work like it's supposed to. I can't edit anything?

Same, seems like there is nothing to edit.

I've been using the Default setting. I settled on that after listening to my Beatles and my Eels (live) collection for 3 times. Once with Default, once with Chu Moys setting and once with Dr. Meiers setting. The default setting seemed most enjoyable to me. It's hard for me to exactly pinpoint the subtle differences. I tried other settings as well, but none was actually better than the 3 standard settings that come with it.

tried it ages ago. Sounded awful to my ears. Nothing like the real thing.

For my final judgement, I am settling on the c.Moy setting. The standard setting is just a smidgen darker but the effect is really about the same which is why I settled with the cmoy. The j. meier setting is okay but is still unnatural with hard panning stuff like the Beatles.

The c.Moy and the default setting are so close to each other in soundstage effect that the synergy with the rest of the system will decide which one i'll leave on.

Anyone compared the latest bs2b version with hardware crossfeed?

Well, yes and no. I compared my main set-up to my Porta Corda MkIII. My Stello DA100 and WA6 sound better...

I've always wanted a hardware crossfeed, but since Meier Audio isn't selling those anymore and I haven't got the time to DIY one I am still unable to make a fair comparision.
