BitPerfect (was: Audirvana Alternatives) - Page 50

post #736 of 774

Yup, bought BitPerfect, very pleased for $10 and it does exactly what I wanted.

If I'm using an external USB DAC, which SRC setting do I want?

Generally speaking any of the SoX options will outperform Core Audio. As to choosing between linear, intermediate and minimum, I think you're best trusting your ears.

I second the SoX - Ive used it for years now. Its still the best. Min phase IMHO.....

Just notice, the EQ on iTunes doesn't work if Bit Perfect is running. Is this expected or I am missing something?

That's to be expected. When BitPerfect is active, it actually takes over the playing duties from iTunes. All iTunes does at that point is to provide a pretty interface for you to tell BitPerfect which files to play.

Ok, thanks

Been using BP for years as well and I can hear no difference with more expensive options.

IMO this piece of software is way underpriced for how good it performs and seamlessly interoperates with iTunes, which is exactly what I wanted.

Recently bought DSD Master as well. Phenomenal how it makes a file that can be imported into iTunes, played back through your Dac as a DSD file as well as a ALAC file when not going through the Dac.

One thing I wish for in Bitperfect that will probably never come is the option of equalisation.

Actually, we are very interested in providing EQ as a future enhancement.  We are looking at various ways of incorporating generic DSP into our audio engine that can be implemented without sacrificing audio quality to an unacceptable degree.  If we can do that, EQ becomes an attractive candidate for one of the things we can implement with it.  It won't happen in the short term, though, but at least "NEVER" is not the correct timeframe :)

Nice to know, I'm sure if or when this feature is added it will be seamlessly integrated and easy to use as well. 

My compliments on your website as well, it has valuable info for computer-audiophiles and helped me configure both your apps as well as another one I occasionally use to compare.

I like BP very mutch. Great value for money ☺
post #747 of 774

Damn, I'll have to downgrade to Mavericks again, there's no dark mode icon for BitPerfect yet.  :wink_face:

 

Yosemite does look sleek though.

 

post #748 of 774

Does that mean BP is not yet compatible with Yosemite?

post #749 of 774

For what seems like forever now, I still use BP more than any other music player/app.

post #750 of 774

BP works just fine in Yosemite.

 

I was just teasing the developer as there is no light menu bar icon for using dark mode yet, just a cosmetic thing.

I'm sure he's already on it.
