i use foobar, but i still think itunes looks better. foobar has alot of customizable features and it's pretty good.

I'm running Foobar with Columns UI. Very nice, and very small so I can run it behind computer games. I also set up some hotkeys, and now my Saitek keypad has buttons for play/pause, next track and previous track. Very easy to use.

<3 foobar. Loads instantly, smooth operation. Basic customizable GUI, but stock is just fine for me.

edit: and you don't get a "foobarhelper.exe" running in the background

Foobar/ASIO/Flac for sound quality I can trust.

Been messing around Publius' parametric EQ plugin(which can go as low as you want, 15 Hz if you want), and Gawd, Foobar's stock EQ has Got to go... (Thanks, Publius).

Foobar2000 with Asio, FLAC and ColumnsUI.

Before I used ReplayGain (89dB) in Foobar but now I'm not sure, I think it hurts dynamics.

If someone else has some feedback on that...maybe amps love higher output, makes sence?

Foobar2000

Unicode Support
Replaygain
Tabbed playlists
Tabbed Panel + ColumnsUI with all the added components that are acutally useful

There are a few other minor bits, but thats more than enough reasons to use foobar2k and foobar2k only (in my case)
