O.k .. I have been trying this out for the past couple of days. I have to say that I am very impressed with it. I am quite happy with the fact that it uses a lot less resources then winamp, and also don't have all the bloat that winamp has in it.

No, I am not blasting winamp, I love winamp. It is the only AOL program I do like. I am simply saying that I found something that suits my needs better. A great "MUSIC" player that plays just, well, Music .. This little app is quite amazing. The default sound quality sux, but the feq I got for it makes it sounds as good as winamp does :)

Anyone else use this program ??

I didn't say it replaces it. I said I found something that I like equal to it .. lol .. and when I said that about foobar, I didn't really go into great detail with it the last time I tested it.

Before I decided on liking it I went threw a couple of them. Sonique, WMP10, Itunes, etc. They all still sux. But Foobar improved over the long time since I used it last ..

Plays just ncie for me at 96Khz/24bit resampling... Whether it improves the sound or not I dunno but the options there so :D

ANyway I like its stereo to quadrophinic upmixing. Does a better job then CMSS :D

0.9 beta is stable as 0.8 too :D

The thing with winamp is that there is a background sound all the time .. With any other media player it's not there .. I'm not sure what it is .. Winamp is still the best player, with the improvements to this one. It is getting better ..

I love foobar2000, it's very quick, loads large playlists with ease (I've never been able to get Winamp to do it properly), it's simple to look at, and it's so customisable should you want it to be. Top notch software! :D

How can you possibly say the sound quality sucks? It is about as clean a playback chain you will ever see on a Windows PC. If it's sounds bad without EQ, it means that either your soundcard or speakers leave ALOT to be desired.

That is very true. I have a generic built in audio card with my computer .. I got an feq for foobar that makes it sound better. I attached it below so who ever wants to can check it out ..
