On my rig, Gateway dual core, 4 gigs ram, windows 7 - windows media sounds flat, undeminsenional, pretty poor. I have firewire going into am M-audio solo spidf converter-into Monarchy DIP Upsampler, into XDAC V3with PSU into a Cayin A50T/B&M 685's. The J River with WASAPI sounds awesome. Transparent, detail, resolving, non-fatiguing, excellent instrumnet placement, deep and wide soundstage. I didn't get any of that with windows media. I am going by very good quality recordings.
