I TRY and find a better gui and there simply isn't one (use a win theme like vista inspirat tao2005). Until Amarok is fully ported this will be the music manager player of choice. XMPlay has the best url support and so when installing wx DO NOT let it put it's own url support in. Wx will not play 24bit flac nor does it have any plugs or skins of it's own.
It is simply hands down the simplest, most powerful gui for playback of audio.
And yes, I use the eq that comes with realtek. nbd

Looks cool. Wouldn't see me downloading it. The UI looks trashy. Prolly has some major, or minor bugs in it. Big problem, is that it lacks alot of the features that I am use to in a media player.

I really like this program as well but, I frequently switch between: 1) Foobar (for it's very low memory footprint to start PRIOR to loading music) and it's reliablity and 2) XMPlay because it is full featured.

I agree about all of the interface stuff (which is superb) and mostly about usability but the memory footprint is a bit high for someone who codes for a living as I have multiple programs running and I need all the memory I can conserve...

I've used pretty much every audio program out there and this is the program I use for playback of my albums. The interface is very clean and uncluttered. Everything is laid out almost perfectly. (There was just a small learning curve to set up the program the way I liked which just consisted of stepping through the "preferences.") I especially like that it can scan for changes in the music folder.

I discovered one thing I would like changed. If I delete files the program still has them listed. You can delete them from the database pretty easily by doing it manually, but I think this should be an option to happen automatically during startup when it checks for new files. (I discovered the same annoying thing with Apple's Itunes and I won't use Microsoft's Mediaplayer because it is too cluttered to use as just an audio player)

I use Musicmatch to do everything else.

I've used Foobar and frankly I don't understand why people like it so much. I also don't understand why someone thinks this deserves a low score. It is free and does exactly what it is intended to do. It shouldn't lose points for not having certain features. If you just want a simple audio player I can't recommend anything better.

the equalizer still doesnt work on my machine.
This project needs more developers to create good and stable player in the next few years...

Pretty nice. Very similar to MusikCube [http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/musikCube/1091033963/1], which I love -- they are both based on the same core project, apparently. 0.4.1.0 is out now:

0.4.1.0
+ (Linux) XF86Audio keys supported. This means you can use your multimedia keys for wxMusik on linux.
+ new program icon by Ben Oakes
- enhanced taglib mpeg header parsing code
- several bugs fixed, i cannot remember.
+ middle mouse click on album(or artist) in selection box starts playing of whole album (artist)
+ the playing control area can now be placed on top of the window instead of the bottom.
- return key press in search box no longer starts song play
+ using taglib for tag reading on writing of ogg,flac,mpc,mp3/2 files.(for ape files the mac sdk code is still used). taglib is faster and supports unicode for tags (even id3v2 tags) easily.
- scrolling using cursor keys was not possible on win32
+ added crashhandler for win32 (using BlackBox.dll) and for linux (using code from wxcode)
+ supports ape,mpc and flac on linux
+ moved from cvs to subversion as version control software.
