Editors' Review

AIMP provides all the basic tools you'd expect from a media player. However, it evolves into something special once you discover its special features. It supports more than 20 audio formats and 32-bit digital audio, and it converts between various formats, too. You can also customize it with Winamp add-ons.

The program's interface felt instantly comforting. Its professional design is sleek, and all its command buttons are simple to navigate. We never felt confused or lost enough to require a visit to the Help file. The program's functionality isn't anything special because it simply lets you upload MP3s and play CDs using its standard controls. We had no problems doing either, and we were pleased with its crisp sound quality. However, this program came into its own with its lush variety of features. Its 16-band graphic equalizer was nice, but we only noticed a difference in sound when we used the presets. It also offered an Auto Shutdown feature where we could customize the time limit and action for shutting the program down. Most impressively, there was a feature for recording online radio, just like holding a tape deck up to the stereo in the old days. With all its pieces adding up to a superior product, we enjoyed every minute of using this program.

AIMP is freeware. It comes as a compressed file and leaves folders upon uninstalling. While its functionality is pretty standard, its features impressed us, and we recommend this program.

"Excellent Music Player"

January 19, 2015  |  By Manxman

 |  Version: AIMP 3.60 Build 1470

Pros

18 band equalizer especially useful for sorting badly placed sub-woofer boom. 32 bit processing with a 24 bit audio card from a 16 bit CD source means quantization errors in processing are very small and worthwhile so unless you're using audiophile equipment this will make it sound better not worse as some do! As a bonus it's free! Oh and the install is one click which doesn't apply to my other recommendation.

Cons

No cons really so why not the full 5 stars? XM Player from Un4seen sounds generally even better and can take my sound card to 200k instead of 192k and can toggle noise shaping but with it's nine band equalizer does require better/less convenient sub placement...

Summary

Try this and XM player even if you have paid good money for something else it's unlikely they'll sound better!
