I really like winamp but I will add one to your list. Album art on Flac encoded files doesn't work.

"At that point 16bit/44.1Khz data from CDs wil be delivered as 24bit data"

Why on earth would anyone want to do that. There is no difference between a 16bit file and a 24bit file with the 8 LSBs set to zero. Actually there is a difference, it will take up a third more storage space but there will not be any other difference between the two files.

Please don't respond to old threads, especially without reading them.

This is not about 24 bit files. This is about how 16 bit files are represented in memory while DSP is performed and they're played back.

Wow, really, Winamp v5.53? If that's the case, that's a huge flaw in which I'm sure will discourage many.

I don't use .flac, only .wav's. Still though, that some how kind of surprises me since it is able to succeed at pretty much everything else so well.

I prefer the ASIO sound, although I don't think this will be universal. DS is warmer, a bit rolled off. Almost a little like the stereotypical tube sound.
I cannot vouch for Vista, but I have to admit I can hear the subtle difference with XP, especially in the bass textures.
