Mar 6, 2018 Version: 1.4 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

The best audio player indeed. And you can download skins, plugins, and a lot of cool stuff for it.

Oct 29, 2015 Version: 1.3.9 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

The performance issues from the older 1.x versions have been fixed, DVD-Audio playback is smooth again. The MP4 demuxer and the AAC decoder apparently were improved as well.

Jul 22, 2013 Version: 1.2.9 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

Slight setup required, but after that it is the best at ripping CD's managing audio (play, gain, convert,etc) and is highly customizable through plugins. Now go and download and enjoy your music

"I've had real, actual training. Going back 25 years. Including Unix and C programming."

Well, YAY for you! I too have been around computers for a long time, way back to my first one, an old VIC-20. C-64, Amiga, Mac, C-128D

I also have training in BASIC, CP/M, DOS, COBALT, AS/400.

Foobar has an interface that is much easier to use than many programs out there which cost $100+
So if you are such a guru BOB, then MAKE YOUR OWN!

I'll stick with Foobar as I have the past 3 years!
