the age-old advice -- the best way to improve the sound of your stereo is to buy a good set of speakers -- is true with computers also.

I don't think your remark reflects the nature of this software. It is my understanding that this software is for those of us who are needing to apply filters. This is actually pretty neat as it has some nice presets that make it easy to quickly apply filters to podcasts and various other audio files you may be working with.

yeah, there's an iTunes audio enhancing plugin or two i've tried and liked. my point was software can only do so much. i definitely prefer a good set of 2.1 speakers -- which is two satellites and a subwoofer. not everybody has the money i know, but if you can manage it somehow, for $150 to $200 you can buy a nice set of speakers that are such a joy to listen to -- http://www.macworld.com/article/144084/2011/11/speakers_buying_guide.html

i can personally vouch for the Harmon Kardon SoundSticks: http://www.macworld.com/article/143230/2009/10/soundsticksii.html and http://www.macworld.com/article/154998/2010/10/soundsticksiii.html

what software can do for the SoundSticks and your computer speakers are two entirely different things. iTunes has a built-in 10-band equalizer with about 20 or so presets and you can make your own also. iTunes preferences has Sound Enhancer adjustment under iTunes/Preferences/Playback/Sound Enhancer/

the reason the SoundSticks have been around so long is not because of their looks, believe me you, they sound amazing.

Okay, I bit the bullet and bought a license. I like the program in terms of the interface and the ability to rather quickly select or create various effects. The sound quality is good. That being said, I'm not happy with the output file. It's way too loud and nearly distorted. Unfortunately, I lack the proper vocabulary to describe what I'm talking about, so please bear with me or offer a more proper description. When I open most sound files in Amadeus Pro, the waveform shows nicely delineated highs and lows. But when I open the output file from AudioRefurb, it's like seeing a giant block of solid line. It's as if I took the original file and amplified it excessively.

As such, I'd like to better be able to control the output file from AudioRefurb. (I think it's the gain I'm talking about.) Perhaps I'm missing some kind of setting or feature in the program. But I'd rather have a file where the audio is recorded a bit low than too high. As it stands, I'd almost be better off simply using AudioHijack to record AudioRefurb and then working with the Hijack file. I was doing that, but it became too much hassle to wait through the entire song in order to get the file.

It would also be nice if I were not limited to AIFF file format. It's the 21st century; there are other formats out there now.

Please give one a less truncated demo allowing a couple of songs to be exported so the potential buyer can truly test the demo! Sheesh.

I am disapointed by this software.

Playing Songs with AudioRefurb give you a fantastic sound improvment.
But when you convert a song it sounds distorted.

I emailed this to the AudioRefurb Support but got no answer.

So for me AudioRefurb is an not working toy.
