I have a Creative SOund Blaster Audigy sound card and ive been using windows 7 with the latest sound card drivers.'
Now Ive switched to XP and im also using the latest drivers. Ive noticed that on XP the music sounds different (worse) than on windows 7.
On windows 7 the sound is richer, clearer and snares are sharper and ive never been setting anything except installing the drivers.
Ive been experimenting a bit and ive found out that it looks like its the EAX settings that are making that difference.

The "Guitar Grunge" EAX option set at 100% makes the music sound similar to windows 7, but still not that much good.

Setting up "Concert Hall" at 100% sounds very similar to windows 7 but theres too much reverb.

Any ideas?

try to use No Effects. DSP is disgusting.

also try to use kernel streaming with whatever player you have. Maybe even ASIO.
