If you are an PC Audio junky like me here is a hint to get the best possible playback with Windows 7.

Did you know that in Windows 7 you can assign a priority to software applications such as iTunes? This is a great way to avoid skipping and drop-outs while playing audio files. Sometimes this can happen while mousing around or multitasking. But i can also happen when an update is transmitted over the network.

Right click on the 'Task Bar', left click on 'Start Task Manager', left click on the 'Processes' tab, look for your player software such as 'iTunes.exe *32', right click on your player software then left click on 'Set Priority'.

The highest priority is 'Real Time' but you cannot choose that option for player software. The best you can do is 'High Priority'. The default setting is 'Normal'. If you don't change the priority of your player software it will remain at 'Normal' by default.

Choosing 'High priority helps insure that your player software gets the max attention from the processor. It really does make your music run smoother without those dreaded drop-outs.
