Transparency of JRiver's Eq

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Has anyone tried to use the Jriver graphic equalizer and if so, anyone have any opinions on how transparent it is when engaged. In other words, if I engage it and tweak one frequency a tiny bit to remedy something I dislike about my phones, does having it engaged impact the sound quality of the rest of the recording. I use WASAPI mode.

Hi. I'm a huge fan of J. River MC. I can't find much any fault in it for audiophile quality playback. I haave 3 high-end HTPC's that I built and J. River was chosen due to it's transparentness, ie it does not get in the way of the music. I use it's built in EQ for tweaking my set ups and I've never heard any side effects from it. I am assuming that because it work digitally, and most importantly AFTER it decodes the music files, the side effects, if any, are going to be near impossible to hear.

My understanding of J.River is that it uses 64bits for all internal DSP effects. This helps to minimize any side effects.

I love JRMC as well! I'm begining to experiment with its PEQ and room correction capabilities.  Working on getting rid of my receiver altogether!
