I don't think you are crazy or at least you're not the only crazy guy in that case :p, I believe I left Winamp for foobar2000 because I actually thought foobar2000 had better soundquality, more spacious, more real-life sounding. I hadn't also left Winamp for no reason as I was used to it. It was a bit like comparing closed vs open headphones, of course that's heavy exaggeration but the differences were somewhat similar but to much much less extent obviously.
I may be crazy but between iTunes, Winamp, foobar2000 I tend to hear these kinds of differences sound wise:
iTunes: my least preferred sound, has the coldest, crispiest (highs especially in an almost colored way (think Grado style), very digital sounding
Winamp: The warmest sounding of the three, smoothest, somewhat compressed soundstage
foobar2000: the most natural and neutral sounding of the three; neither cold nor warm or excessively digital or analog sounding, just right.
