I'm looking for the perfect settings for my dubstep library and so far I've been using the "Electronic" preset because it brings out a lot of good sounds in the songs, but I know there's got to be something better

If you want the songs to sound like the original version, use Flat or turn off the EQ. If you want the songs to sound better, get a better sound system. If you want them to sound different, then learn what all the frequencies represent and adjust it to your ears.

Does it degrade the quality of sound more than other programs? Recently switched over from Windows Media, can't say I've noticed much of a difference.

I use “Electronic” setting for everything, and not because its electronic, but basically its the “SMILE EQ” (look it up). Makes every Genre sound beautiful. Fact.

Nope. That’s the one. Stick with it. Believe me.
