When it comes to playing back music on your computer, especially high quality lossless audio files, you've got to take more than just your hardware into account.  Software plays a big role in the overall quality of your sound.

The latest update to Pure Music adds plenty of features.  "Suggestions for many of the new features and usability improvements came from our growing user base," says Channel D Director of Engineering Robert Robinson.  He adds that beta testers of the new improvements are saying that the program is now better than ever.

The new features, which come as a free update to current users, include automatic sample rate switching.  That's something that a lot of programs, including iTunes, won't do.  Other programs will downgrade your higher quality audio files to match the standard 44.1 kHz output.

Pure Music is designed to work in tandem with Apple's iTunes program, giving you higher quality and features like 64-bit upsampling while still letting you control your audio directly through iTunes.  The program, which is only for Macintosh computers, is available for $129.  Link
