Compared to PowerDVD, SoftDVD Max 4 offers limited features, but they are highly sufficient for most of us and those that are included are nicely engineered. The exclusive new Dolby HeadPhone sound feature is astonishing and really provides 3D like sound in a classic set of headphones or speakers thanks to a complex modelling technology. So for the price donít hesitate anymore and run at your local computer store to purchase this marvellous software thatíll turn your computer in a real entertainment system.
