Has anyone tried this?  I first thought of it when experimenting between whether to break down an sacd iso into dsf or dff files. dsf has metadata capability.  dff files do not.  (Sonore's iso2dsd app let's you choose)   So dsf seemed the logical choice, but JPlay Mini likes the  dff files better.  Less glitches, smoother performance, better sound. 


So on a  whim I tried removing the  file properties from some large 24/192 wav files before playing them, and I got the same positive improvement.  


So now my obsessive JPlay routine unfortunately has more steps: copy files to C:// , (keeping highlighted), right-click open properties, go to details tab, click "remove proprieties and personal information", choose second option "remove the following...", cut files to clipboard, open mini, close everything else, maximize mini, arrow click in empty area, hit space bar.  (Windows 10)
