    lol he has a TL that i've listened to.. his system is just fine. But i agree with him in that the enhancer plugin is pretty sweet.. i cant even listen to winamp without it. Senior Tech Blogger (Want a product reviewed? Contact me.)

    There is a Winamp line-in plugin that allows any signal coming into your puter from the line in port to be played through Winamp. This means that if you have a Winamp DSP plug like Enhancer, the signal from line-in will be processed. Years ago I downloaded the line-in plugin from the Winamp plugins section, but I think it now comes with the newer versions of Winamp such as 5.13 and can be installed during Winamp installation.
    RRConfig has a checkbox in the XM/Sirius where you can then tell RR that you want to use the line in plug.

    So to get your XM signal to run through Enhancer in RR you would:

    1. Make sure you have the line-in plug installed in Winamp (Options/Preferences/Input - see if it's listed. If not, I'm sure you can figure out how to install it);

    2. Download and install the Enhancer DSP plugin from link above;

    3. Configure the Enhancer plugin to your personal preference from within Winamp (I generally use the General Improvements preset and make sure that I have boost turned on);

    4. Hook your XMPCR to the line in port on your soundcard;

    5. Make sure "Use Line-in Plugin" is checked in the XM/Sirius portion of RRConfig (leave the default string in the box next to it).
