The main benefit comes from the internal signal processing in Ozone that makes your music sound great. But Ozone goes far beyond other "enhancers" by giving you the power and control to completely customize the sound.
As a storage format, analog has limitations. Records suffer from wear, dust and scratches. Digital storage lets us preserve music without loss, copy it, organize it, and process it.
But vintage analog equipment gives music warmth, bass, depth and just an overall pleasing sound. The nonlinear aspects of analog playback that a mathemetician would consider "wrong" actually make music sound better.
iZotope Ozone is the result of an extensive research effort to separate the good from the bad of analog and model the desirable aspects. As a plug-in for Winamp, iZotope Ozone offers all the convenience of digital storage combined with the sound quality of vintage analog equipment.
