Windows 7: Audio quality : 7MC x External player

11 Sep 2009   #1

W7 x86 RTM Final
Audio quality : 7MC x External player


Does anybody can explain why my audio when played at 7MC is very worse than when played at Foolbar?

When I playback my audio files (MP3) with 7MC, aside of having less quality, they are presenting some noises, like clicks and pops, however when I play them with Foolbar (an excellent player!) the sound is hereby crystalline and perfect!

Anybody knows how to fix it?

Thk u all

That's very strange. I have a collection of about 12,000 songs and I have not noticed this.

Do you have any other filter/codec packs installed?
Does it happen when using WMP12?
Do you use a different audio output when listening to music using Foobar? (i.e. are you using digital audio out when using Media Center but using analog audio out for Foobar?)

Thank you for your reply kstrike

The problem was solved, it was related to drivers.
I've just got updated drivers for W7 from Gigabyte page and everything worked perfectly.
