After months of frustration, finally a simple music player that has everything i need.


Awesome Developer

I submitted a bug report, and within four hours he not only responded, but had a beta up that fixed my issue.


Finally a good player!

I also tried dozens, but none of them could just play music from my hard drive without creating a library of its own. They have a 30-day trial, I strongly recommend to try it, it's really good.


Bliss at last

First player out of dozens (pretty much everything out there on the internet) for Mac that I've tried which actually supports embedded cue sheets. Also supports surround sound music.
