DO NOT BUY! They limit the number of times you are allowed to re-install it.
After having to perform a fresh system install and entering my serial number, I get the message.
"Maximum number of activations exceeded."

Apparently, they now sell what's called "Audio Essentials," which appears to be a system-wide approach using an application that installs into the Applications folder. The problem is that the "demo" does not allow you to tinker with any of the settings. So, I have no way to know how this thing might actually sound. What's the point of that, exactly?

I think so, the worst thing is that I have bought the
license and is not working anymore.

SRS iWOW is one of the best things I've ever had on my Mac, after a quick and super easy installation it really improves the sound quality to a level that your ears won't believe.

Support is also top notch (though I needed their help only once as it's rock solid) !

I tried some other sound improvement software (like Hear) and must say that I reverted to SRS iWOW after just a few minutes.

First, others do not support external audio hardware like my beloved Creative X-FI (sound christalyser).

Second, others aren't as straightforward, too many settings may confuse even experienced users. And, like me, you may well experience problems with other software that use audio (Skype etc...)

Bottom line :
The few extra bucks you'll pay for SRS iWOW over Hear are well worth it !

As far as I'm concerned I highly recommend iWow, all my audiophiles friends say the same !

At one time I thought that iWow was the best thing for audio refinement. But, it was limited to just iTunes. It did make the sound some what better through my desktop speakers but it just lacked the oomph that the sound needed.

Then I came across a program called Hear made by Prosoft, makers of Drive Genius and decided to see if it would make a actual difference and to my shock my desk to speakers were sounding like high priced speakers and I was totally blown away. Not only was it tuned for iTunes but anything else that used audio and it could be totally customized to your taste.

One day a friend came over while I was playing my iTunes and asked how I was getting that type of sound out of my speakers? I told him about hear and showed him the inter face and turned it on and off to show the difference. It was totally like night and day. As soon as I turned it of my sound went flat. Now just to let you know these were creative speakers that cost me $100. Now I have my Mac playing through my entertainment system and still use Hear 1.0.5.

iWow, you were great tool prior to Hear but Hear blows you and any other sound enhancing tools out of the water. Hear even tell the user ti disable any sound utility you may be using before implementing Hear so you do not create a conflict.

This is a combo review and comment comparing what was when and what is now. Hear is the technology of the future for sound on the Mac. It has a ton of presets for all sorts of categories just to get started and once you go over the manual you will learn how to tweak the setting or create your own. If iWow is to survive, it is going to need some major work if it expects to compete against Hear. It is a pity That Mr M. the editor at About this Particular Mac (atpm.com) will not let me join and bring life back to what is now a newsletter. End of Line...

Hear is twice the price of SRS iWOW. I should hope it's better. But thanks for the tip - I'll give Hear a try.

It now works in 64 bit iTunes in Lion. Which is more than I can say for some other iTunes add-ons, like G-Force.

That is an unfair comparison since they do two totally different things. One is audio and the other is visual and it is not right to clump them together. but if you want to save time and agravation get Hear by Prosoft.

It's a shame that a software developer isn't capable of updating his software so that paid customers can enjoy it without hassel or worarounds.
It, also a shame that they sill selling it while it isn't working.
No more SRS software for me.....
Use the itunes equalizer can do the job as well!

For Hear and Digital Power Station also no Lion updates. Either it is difficult, or...?

Yes, but the dev. builds for Lion were long available. Developer should have anticipated on possible problems a long time ago instead of doing this after the public release of Lion (and it seems they did ) Remember this is paid software and they are still selling it although it isn't usable for the most of us.
It's been 5 weeks now and still no update and they keep on saying a fixed version will be there soon for the same 5 weeks.
By the way, the workaround wasn't even discovered bij SRS themselves...
Looking at their facebook page shows that they are very busy with all kind of things, they should be busey with their incompatible software instead....
It's a shame.

As of 8/28 one can see that iWOW is currently not available for Mac.

Anyone who's still interested, seems that they finally decided not to wait for OSX 10.8 but released a compatible version (3.3) on their download site a few days ago (they didn't announced it on their site yet !) This version seems to solve the problems.
