excuse my ignorance on this matter but i am suddenly having a problem i can't figure out. i upggraded my cd drive, installed a new m-audio 192 sound card and added a 1 Tb western digital external drive to my dell xp desktop. i started transferring my songs via apple lossless and itunes to the drive. now it seems like the music is veiled. i tried playing a cd without buring to the system as well with similar results. it seems if i use the windows media player it sounds better but it is far from similar to original. i tried foobar 2000 with the same results. i can't figure out whats wrong so i am turning to the forum gurus for help! i am listening through monsoons normally but i have even tried plugging in my powered quads with no luck other than realizing how different the server is vs. the original.
