A short question about BitPerfect.

 

I'm listening radio via iTunes@Win7 most time, but I can't find any program or add-on can enhanced sound quality for radio streaming on Windows system.

 

So, my question is your BitPerfect will do this? (Enhance the radio streaming sound quality for iTunes)

 

If that's possible, I would like to purchase a mac and BitPerfect as sound source.

 

 

Thank you!

 

 

Best,

 

Pal

 

 

BitPerfect won't play radio streams, it will hand control back to iTunes in those cases.

This is peculiar, the iTunes Application Store confirms I have version 1.0.2 installed but I can not see the icon on the bar of the iMac and I would like to use it. How do I find Bitperfect on the iMac? confused_face_2.gif

It should be in the applications folder.   Is it in your dock?

Search: BitPerfect in Spotlight. That should bring it up, if nothing else. Oddly, at this point, I almost never use the dock or apps folder to launch anything. It's just so much easier to press CMD+space, type, press enter.

Just bought BitPerfect today, so far I'm noticing a slight improvement in my setup.. but I'm still tweaking my settings. I noticed that as soon as I enable upsampling, I get no more sound. Any idea what that could be?

Hi,

 

probably your Dac does not recognize the new sample rate, try to lower it.

Precisely. What DAC is being used?

I, too, have a Audioengine D1 DAC, and while it does fine with Integer Mode, it doesn't seem to allow Bitperfect to output 24 bits. High-rez tracks read 16/96 instead of 24/96. When the DAC isn't connected, Bitperfect pads everything to 24 bits, even ordinary redbook files.

 

Can you help?

 

Thanks,

Alex

 

Was this issue ever resolved? Was it a bug?

Yes, this should be fixed in the current App Store version, 1.0.2.

I just purchased BitPerfect after trying many other players. I liked that there is good documentation on the BitPerfect website, and the app seems to be updated frequently. I will post what I think when I've had a chance to play around with it!

 

agentsim, are you Canadian out of curiosity?

Yep, based in Montreal.

Got this on the app store a few weeks ago and I love it! Money well spent, thanks!

 

Although I just noticed this, when I have my DAC connected through USB, BitPerfect doesn't like to output sound to the USB, but rather just plays through the macbook speakers. When I turn BitPerfect off my computer's sound outputs to my DAC again. This isn't a huge deal at the moment because my DAC takes optical and coax inputs that don't have this problem, but I do plan on getting a USB DAC soon (HRT MSII) and want to make sure it will work for the new DAC.

You have the USB DAC selected in BitPerfect settings?
post #614 of 742

Oh hah, silly me. Like I said it was a thing I just noticed and didn't really spend time troubleshooting, now I feel a little embarrassed..

 

Once again, thanks for making this app and thanks for being available to answer my dumb question.

I've noticed that if I try to rewind a song in iTunes while I'm using BitPerfect that the track will not rewind to the beginning, but only goes back to the 3 or 4 second mark. This doesn't happen when I use iTunes only. How can I fix this problem? Thanks!
