    foobar is shit and we all know it is – now if they decided to ship it with an interface that was fucking useful, some people might start using it other than fanboys who have no clue.

    Foobar 2000 is definitely one of the best players around
    (probably the best…)
    the fact that u can use an Asio driver without all the bells and whistles that the competition seems to need says enuff
    no realplayer, winamp , vlc or whatever comes close
    if you are a sucker for pure audioquality Foobar is your thing…
    (but you got to sell your soundblastercard and pc speakers…)
