QUUXPLAYER: PC AUDIO DONE RIGHT
Ever wonder why Windows music players seem to be designed for everything except actually listening to music?
A DIFFERENT APPROACH
There are a ton of windows music utilities out there. You can download. You can rip, mix, and burn. You can stream. You can convert. You can add visualization. You can get on line and share your opinions about music. You can buy music. And on and on.
But does your current Windows music player make it easy to sit back, relax, and really listen to all that music? Or does it distract you with unnecessary complexity?
Now there's a Windows audio player that is designed to make the important part of all of this ? the listening experience ? a pleasure instead of an afterthought. You can get to the music you want to hear quickly and easily, even with libraries of 100,000 tracks or more. All with outstanding sound quality. And without unnecessary stuff like on-line stores, limited formats, and marketing gimmicks that compromise the listening experience. It's simple enough to get started right away, but when you're ready it will support you with a rich set of features like advanced automatic playlist rules and a 30 band equalizer.
USING ITUNES OR WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER TO ORGANIZE FILES OR SYNC YOUR PORTABLE PLAYER?
Fine by us. That's what we do. But for playing, iTunes and WMP just don't cut it. When you want to actually kick back and listen, those apps just don't get it done. They're just not designed for the listening experience. And that's ok. Use them for what they're good at, and then tell QuuxPlayer where your audio files are and really enjoy music as it was meant to be heard.
