This is a MAD input plug-in for Winamp 2.
It replaces the MPEG audio decoder functionality that comes with Winamp to provide superior sound for MP3 and other MPEG audio files. It supports output resolutions from 8 to 32 bits.
How it Works
High-quality output begins with a highly accurate decoder. MAD fully satisfies the ISO/IEC 11172-4 computational accuracy requirements for compliance. However, accuracy alone is not enough.
Internally, MAD represents the decoded audio signal with high precision. Combined with a form of dither, this allows output samples to be calculated with less objectionable quantization noise and more audible dynamic range than most decoders produce today. The result is unusually high-quality output that is a more faithful reconstruction of the signal encoded in MPEG audio than you may have realized possible.
