CD plugin

Does the native CD plugin work by digital extraction? Presumably it does, as I find that I can use it in conjunction with a third-party DSP plugin (CompWide). The equivalent Winamp and QMP CD plugins have the option to enable or disable digital extraction. No complaints - I'm just interested. Many thanks.

Given that I don't have an analog connection between my Revo and my DVD-ROM (the Revo doesn't support it) and that it plays, I'd say yes it was doing DAE by default.

XMPlay requires that the sample data goes through it (plugins can't output the data themselves), so yep, the CD plugin does use "digital extraction".

I hate analog connections between CD-ROMs and sound cards because the analog wire acts like an antenna and you hear all kind of noise like the RAM/HDD access.

Almost as bad is the fact that the DACs used in CD and DVD ROMs are best described as "bargain basement".
