Player race OSX (Audirvana - Plus)

By yannig, 28/08/2012
How long have you been using?
it's been several months now that I use.

Did you try many other models before buying it?
I've tried a few readers (like Songbird and others).
Sound much worse than the basic iTunes (I walk OSX).

Amarra allowed a small improvement over iTunes, but was very (too) expensive.
I could try, though.
FYI, there Puremusic, which seems to be ok (but more expensive), I have not tried.

What feature do you like most?

Sound, which may be very bad players above base (including iTunes), depending on the quality of the sound card is used.
Stamps, effects of rhythm, phrasing, space, nuances. The overall quality improves frankly.

Perhaps even that sounds better than a lot of software publishers / sequencer (Audacity, Ardour, Cubase, Logic Studio, I do not know the others). It is Certas not do the same thing.

The fact that it can integrate with iTunes, but also works in standalone.

The fact that it is multi until DXD 32/384 and even DSD64 and 128 (if you have a sound card that can do it).

Its price! (€ 39 or € 46.41 incl VAT)

"Made in France"!

Audirvana and continues to be developed, and the latest versions sound better than the previous ...
Here, a developer who has ideas ... and ear.

What feature do you like the least?
The only limitation that I see is the fact that he needs enough memory to function properly.
And the site is not in French (it may hinder some).

With experience, you do again this choice?
In short, in my opinion, is flawless.

So yes!

I mean, you already own the software. (Apple - iTunes)

All of the eggheads in the internet can argue about the technical this' and that's of their favorite media player, but being a bit of an egghead myself, and having used a lot of these esoteric programs like WinAmp and Foobar and all the others, I sometimes wonder what actually makes them better. I can't figure out why past me condescended to the use of iTunes; I guess some techno-geek told me that if something can't play esoteric audio and video files, that it's an inferior program.

Like I ever used them anyway.

Apple's iTunes is a masterpiece for one reason: its GUI (Graphical user interface for the computer illiterate). If you've ever used an iPod, which you have, iTunes has a menu a bit like the iPods, but of course, the quality and comprehensiveness of the menu is scaled to the quality of a computer. It organizes your music perfectly using the ID3 tags of the files, so you'll be able to find anything you like even if you just remember one piece of information about the music.

And before I go any further, remember the store. Apple's model for downloaded music is genius, and before you write it off as just something that exists in the world, remember the "revolutionary" methods that were attempted by all the other companies in the world before Apple decided to start selling songs at 99 cents per? Yup.

And to round it off, iTunes does include some "features" that were originally very esoteric. Like equalization, which you can store different presets of for different things. It also does play a few of the more obscure files, not that most people would need them, and even includes a tool to convert them to mp3 files in case you're a bit obsessive compulsive like me.

Apple's iTunes is a fantastic offering from Apple, and quite frankly, you aren't reading this review, because you already have and love iTunes.

moosers's review (Nullsoft - Winamp Classic 2.95 Full)

By moosers, 14/01/2011
Nullsoft's Winamp Classic 2.95 is a media player that was one of the first of it's kind. I don't have Winamp any more since I don't use a PC for listening to music. I did used to use it before I switched over to iTunes like most people a while back. I do know people who still use Winamp as their main audio player, and it's definitely a viable option although I haven't used it in a while. It's free for the full version and I believe that they're up to Winamp 5. There is a pro version that costs a small amount of money, although I'm not really sure what the perks of getting it are. I personally haven't used the newest versions of Winamp, as I've only used up to 2.95. It shouldn't make too much of a difference as having the new versions can only be better, although the interfaces and general design to appear to be pretty similar. The best part about Winamp is that you can play virtually any kind of audio file, making it perfect for audiophiles who have files of all types to listen to. ITunes supports a good amount of file types, but there are definitely some types that it doesn't that are indeed covered with Winamp. In addition to audio files, it also plays videos and hosts a wide variety of features both comparable to iTunes and some that aren't found there. If you're at all thinking checking out a new (or a first) general media player for your Windows based PC, this is definitely worth trying out as it's free anyway. Of course I wouldn't go searching for 2.95 as I'm sure the newest available is better than this one. There are definitely options out there for media and audio players beyond iTunes, so go ahead and try Winamp for yourself.
