    Using Nero player now but have used JetAudio, Winamp, wmp, itunes, and a few others.

    JetAudio - great sound, doesnt hurt resources, eq, good looks ...
    "The Poop"
    Winamp -- clean and smooth, better playlist interface, more themes ...
    "Great Playa"
    Windows Media Player -- works ok but I dont like the looks or limit's ...
    "another windows item"


    and my vote goes to JetAudio

    (Musician here,and i have a little studio in my PC) OK in sound and image quality nobody beats Power DVD 6,if you hear the same movie in Power DVD and other media player,you notes the clarity of audio and image and you can improve the sound and image because Power DVD have pluggins for set up a Home Theater in your machine,a real Home Theater,not lies lke others,and remember,the others media player can,t play DVD,s without a decoder behind them,and Power DVD is a decoder for movies and audio,you can play DVD,s with Jet Audio and WMP if you have Power DVD behind them or NVIDIA DVD decoder or another(Power DVD still better DVD decoder,they have a software for encode)and for this reasons is Power DVD the better choice for PC sound,clearly sound,in 2 speakers this software turn your stereo sound in a litle Dolby Sound machine,is very clearly notice the diferences in sound and image,ok Jet Audio is the best good looking,is little and very functional,if you have Power DVD you not need run PDVD you run Jet Audio using the super sound of Power DVD i like the movie screen of Jet Audio,is beautifull and this freeware can improve the sound without any decoder behind,Jet Audio loads amazing fast,like WMP,here in my PC i use Jet Audio with Power DVD 6,most of the time i use Jet Audio because is very,very good software.(remember,my english is bad so excuse me,i try to help with sound thread.)

    Audio: Foobar2000.
    Rock solid code, nearly unlimited flexibility. A bit technical for some, but business-like. Focuses on performance instead of extraneous features / eye candy. YMMV.

    Check it out yourself at:
    http://www.foobar2000.org/

    (recommend Special Installer).

    Features

    * Audio formats supported "out-of-the-box": WAV, AIFF, VOC, AU, SND, Ogg Vorbis, MPC, MP2, MP3, MPEG-4 AAC
    * Audio formats supported through official addons: FLAC, OggFLAC, Monkey's Audio, WavPack, Speex, CDDA, TFMX, SPC, various MOD types; extraction on-the-fly from RAR, 7-ZIP & ZIP archives
    * Full Unicode support on Windows NT
    * ReplayGain support
    * Low memory footprint, efficient handling of really large playlists
    * Advanced file info processing capabilities (generic file info box and masstagger)
    * Highly customizable playlist display

    I voted for Real Player 10.5 final but I really wanted to vote for Rhapsody but it isn't listed. It has the best sound. It sounds better than Power DVD. I used to love Winamp but it has gotten so unstable and buggy with each new version. The last great version was 2.9 and this current 5.09d is terrible. It uses 50% of my CPU when playing the Winamp radio stations. I detest WMP and have ripped versions 8 and 9 off my XP Pro box. So, I use 6.4 if I have to use WMP. I love Rhapsody though and Real Player itself is really good. The songs that I have bought in the Real store sound fantastic on Real Player. I don't understand why so many don't like it. Real is not at all like it was when it was Real 8 and RealOne. Their latest 10.5 Final player is excellent.

    Which audio player has the most enriched playlist options?

    I have been using Itunes for a while now, but its playlist functionality is stunted. One cant enQueue songs! Also, where can I download genuine ITunes plugins?
