Pro version has permanent system tweaks and many of them are unique and carefully tested with ear listening. Its audio optimizations redesigned for better flexibility between audio/network optimizations. If you use JPLAY, you can choose specific optimizations between Audio/Control PC improving image and transparency significantly.

To celebrate the launch of Fidelizer Upgrade Program, I added 25% off for next purchase of the same product in favor of JPLAY platform that may require 2 machines running Fidelizer Pro in agreement. This is introductory offer as for my birthday gift and will be gone after 31st August. If you use JPLAY as Control/Audio PC, you'd better not missing this chance to get free discount.

Im already using Fidelizer 6 and to record instruments sounds much better than Fid 5. With the pro version, aside from having the benefits you mentioned before, the sound remains the same?

Sounds won't be the same. It'll be better and that's what Pro version is for. Here're some of impressions from people using Pro version.   "Hi, Just loaded it and have it running now. It sounds great. Seems very smooth and resolved. I am running in Audiophile mode/JPlay local."   "I have just installed the Fidelizer Pro and it works just as expected. I am really impressed, how much difference the Fidelizer makes to digital audio.  I always disliked the “digital sound” with its glare, graininess and simply sterile artificial sound. I even changed my music selection according to avoid the bad effects as much as possible. No more great female singers and so, because digital it just made it impossible to hear. But NOW THE MUSIC HAS RETURNED and I can listen to what I want and not what digital can reproduce without causing just pain in my ear.   I was using a pretty expensive vinyl record based LINN hifi system (with Linn LP12 record player), before having switched to digital and always missed something. Well, it’s here again, sounding like a very very good analogue recording to my ears – thank to Fidelizer Pro!"

I would really want to try Fid Pro, the thing is that I will use it for my recording pc in my professional studio, i have already a pc completely tweaked but I am using Cubase with lots of vst and libraries, I'm afraid that if I will install Fid Pro those permanents changes will produce conflict with my softwares and liscence keys etc. Also because is a recording pc, of course I disable all the services and eliminate all internet software, etc so i don't know, in case Fid Pro will not conflict with my machine softwares, how to install it without internet.

Fidelizer Pro doesn't require internet connection for activation. You'll get a build generated with data from fiderlizer.key. It'll work on that machine alone and won't affect Windows installation. So your machine can use Fidelizer Pro. However, you're free to consider that you're doing fine job at optimizing system by yourself and any other software may not make any significant improvements. It's your call though I'd say there're quite some of unique optimizations in there.

windows x, Hi you told me that i can use fidelizer 6 on a machine without internet but in your site says:
Purchased product shall be used only on machine that generated fidelizer.key. It will not work on any other machines. So Im confused because as obvious, the audio machine doesnt have any kind of internet because it ruins the sound, so what can I do.
Also now Im using Fid6 freeware, the Fid plus says that it will stop many services,doesnt the fid 6 do the same? I think, because Im using it in a recording pc with lots of vst and Cubase it will be better to use the plus version because the pro it will make you definite changes and that is too risky for my pc, what do you think.
Withe the fid 6 I did a test and it records and plays back the audio a lot better than without it and my pc is already heavily tweaked with no fans and with linear power supply in each ssd.

I see. In the website, I mean it can be used only on the machine generated that key. If you use upgraded Fidelizer on any other machines, it will not work. It doesn't have anything to do with the internet. You just generate the key on that machine, save it in thumb drive and mail me from another machine. The machine that generates fidelizer.key doesn't need internet connection.   As for Fidelizer Plus, it's more like Fidelizer without nag feature version with some improvements like remembering selected audiophile player so it won't ask again and again and stopping services will also stop some new Windows 8/8.1 services (not much though). Fidelizer Pro will do a lot more like   1. All features from Plus version included 2. Fidelizer will perform optimizations on startup automatically 3. System tweaks for permanent optimizations is now available with some very unique tweaks 4. Services will be disabled making no comeback and better resource pool 5. Core optimizations redesigned with machine configuration type improving network optimizations and control services disabling for such case like JPLAY Control/Audio PC   Fidelizer Plus is just demonstration to show that what if Fidelizer wasn't released as freeware. So if you to upgrade, better spend additional $20 for Pro. Pro will disable non-audio related services choice so it shouldn't affect your DAW works.

Hi Windows X, I have loaded Fidelizer 6 on my dual PC JPLAY system (Win 7 Control PC / Win 8 Audio PC). This new release of Fidelizer has surprised me by improving the tone and clarity of recordings. There is an 'edge' to sounds, say brass instruments, that has been removed and instruments sound purer. I am really impressed and am now interested in your Pro version. Will the Pro version work with Win 7. If so, would you say the most important use of Pro would be on the Audio PC or the Control PC?

Pro version can work on Windows 7 just fine with all optimizations working well. To get the best result, I'd recommend purchasing 2 units for both Audio/Control PC. Control PC has some serious audio transport on network protocol and shouldn't be ignored. You should use 'Network Transport' for Control PC and uses 'Network Render' for Audio PC. With 'Extremist' optimization level, it could make some jaw dropping experiences. If you intend to purchase for only one, I'd recommend using Pro version on just Audio PC with 'Network Render' configuration though you may not get better optimizations from Control PC.

After releasing 6.0 for a month, I received feedback about software from both free version and Plus/Pro version. To make Fidelizer becoming more completed and meet users' expectations, I'm releasing version 6.1 fixing and improving things upon request below.


Changelog for version 6.1

Fidelizer
-Fixed fidelizer.key generation bugs on some system
-Fixed network issues caused by stopping services in Windows 7/8
-Reduced glare in high frequencies on some systems

Fidelizer Plus
-Fixed fidelizer.key generation bugs on some system
-Fixed network issues caused by stopping services in Windows 7/8
-Improved core optimizations based on Fidelizer Pro configuration
-Improved Network streaming audio performance

Fidelizer Pro
-Added Uninstall function
-Added 'System configuration optimized for audio playback' option
-Fixed fidelizer.key generation bugs on some system
-Fixed installation error trying to update running software
-Fixed incompatibility with some antivirus like Kaspersky Pure


After using Fidelizer Pro for a while, I must say this is mandatory piece of software for Windows to the enable the superior sound quality in audiophile market. I finished implementing improved core optimizations on Fidelizer Plus so you should notice improved audio performance especially on network streaming. Fidelizer Pro comes with uninstall feature so you don't have to worry about reverting optimizations anymore in future.

I purchased two licences for Fidelizer 6 PRO for my control pc and audio pc. It is not clear to me how to upgrade to PRO6.1 as the download only seems to apply to the free version. Please could you confirm how the PRO upgrade will be applied.

I received an email with an updated Fidelizer Pro 6.1 for each pc. This was easy to load and I have used Extremist setting which takes effect after restart. Having listened for a couple of hours now I have to say I am impressed! The improvements are quite significant - with more texture around notes, particularly stringed and brass instruments. There have been a number of songs where the dynamic range seems to have extended and some sounds are quite startling. I have Win7 on the Control PC and Win 8 on Audio PC and the Fidelizer Pro programme provides a set of drop down options to choose for Control or Audio PC. I have used previous versions of FIdelizer intermittently before but often couldn't be bothered to run Fidelizer each time. However with the Pro version it does the optimisation on start up. If you want to cancel this you just go to menu and cancel. The combination of JPLAY and Fidelizer works very well for my set-up and the free version is well worth a try.

Sounds great. Glad to see it's working fine there. I hope to finish making advanced optimizations becoming more generalized sooner. It took me like half a year to finish Fidelizer Pro's optimizations that won't cause any bad effects on any tweaked systems. Optimizing computer for audio is very tricky. One misstep and could lead to fatal damage in one's system. Customers will receive update news but the update of purchased build will be sent upon request. This is for the sake of engaging communications for improving product's quality.
