Yeah there is a rip setting to control the bit-depth. You can select 24bit which is what my D1-DAC likes to play.

Yeah I did that too in the beginning, and finally realized I had to set it to play in the original wmp player for all the formats, and not that dingy one.

Re: Windows 8.1 Update 1 Preview!

Yeah JT nailed it, it happens after you install iTunes and I did so a few weeks back to move pictures on my wife's iPad. The thing is, when you open it a pop-up occurs asking about an Xbox update so I thought it was Microsoft's player.

Re: Windows 8.1 Update 1 Preview!

More info on the update, when installed on a non touch computer it will automatically boot to desktop, at least with the latest build!

Re: Windows 8.1 Update 1 Preview!

Looking forward to it I guess. I am set up fine right now. If 8.1 update does what have now without having Stardock installed I guess I would rather have it that way.

Re: Windows 8.1 Update 1 Preview!

Here's THG story like yours.

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/mic...bar,25988.html

I hope MS makes it as desktop friendly as possible and that you can use the Metro apps on the desktop plus have the close app ability at the top. Along with the normal Start button menu I think that about covers it.

Good, thanks! As I will probably be paying for Win9 soon I would not like to dump more money into Win8.
