    I decided to go through my music collection (over 100gb) and sort through it all and correct the tags, albumart e.t.c.

    So i thought about checking out different music players/jukeboxes/managers to see if there's any I might like

    I've been using JetAudio for over 5 years and love it, the best feature for me is the way you can set it to sit ontop of the start bar (click here for those of you who dont know what i mean)

    Ive never really looked around much to see what other players are on offer, I just started trying out songbird about an hour ago, its not a bad program, i do like some of the plugins you can download for it

    Going to try out Zune next

    so what music software do you bittekkers use?

    dont really care for it, but it keeps tunes on the wife's phone without my intervention for $15 a month.

    WMP11. It's not bad at all and it gets the job done.

    I've used Winamp for 10yrs. Sometimes I think I'll try something else, but every time I do, I just come back to Winamp. It's not perfect, but what is.

    WMP12, along with MP3Tag. WMP12 makes retagging a one step longer process than WMP11, and it's easier to batch tag with MP3Tag.

    WMP 11/12 more and more these days. I used to use WinAMP quite a lot, but I like the interface of the recent WMP.

    Tbh since upgrading to Win 7, I haven't look at WMP. I probably should!

    For my sins, I've moved away from Winamp and grown to love iTunes, mainly since I bought my iPhone - although looking at the head-fi and hydrogenaudio forums, most people there swear by foobar.

    Oh and by the way, speaking of tags, while I'm sure there are a million ways to do it, I've found Mp3tag to be an excellent solution for my needs.

    MediaMonkey is definitely the best out there. Very easy to have it sort your music for you and stuff.

    Still using Winamp. have been for over 10 years. It plays everything. It's small, skinnable, and just works as I want it to.
