    Whenever i listen to music on youtube, the quality is SOOOOOO much better. BASS is better, music is louder and alot of other things are better. Why isn't winamp as good? and if i can some how change the audio quality my music is played on winamp please help me out.

    EDIT: just realised this should be under software part of the forums sorry for that.

    It depends on what files you're playing up in Winamp. If it's like 64kbps MP3 files then yeah it'll be horrible.

    Or maybe there's something you accidentally tinkered with your winamp like the EQ or gain

    try options/preferences/playback/ make sure (allow 24bit) is checked or unchecked try both depends on audio setup

    also surround and dither options in there, mix match try with an mp3 see if sounds better

    in your specs you don't have your mobo, sound card or headphones/speakers listed.
