WinAmp as Music Server software
This is my current system:

Dell Studio PC with around 5.5 terabytes of storage
Running Winamp as the music server software
USB output from the PC to a Benchmark DAC 1 USB via a cheap non-descript cable
DAC to amplifier via Reality Cables balanced mode
Amplifier is a Spectron Musician III Mark II with Bybee, V-Cap and Tuning fuses upgrade
Amplifier to speakers via Reality Cables - about to switch these out for homemade Spectron sense cables to see if this is an improvement.
Speakers GR Research LS9
Room heavily treated with acoustic panels at key reflection points.
I want to get the most out of this configuration and I want to start with the music server software package to make sure it is the best I can get. My goals are pretty basic, I want the server software run on my PC, have a balance function, be as neutral as possible and be relatively inexpensive. So is the Winamp as good as it gets for this first step or are their sonically better? unsure.gif

I don't even remember when was the last time I used that feature, be it on amplifier or software.
