Editors' Review

+

There is a new player in town--a new audio player, that is. The AtomicPlayer from Quux Software is a simple tool that lets you play your favorite audio files, as well as access numerous online radio stations. This free player will never be considered flashy by any means. The publishers have removed emphasis on what they consider to be irrelevant features (i.e., skins, visualizations, etc). What they do offer is a small, no-nonsense audio player interface that is intended as an alternative choice for individuals who just want to listen to music.

The AtomicPlayer may seem to be a bit technically challenged compared with its more famous counterparts, but its interface features the same audio controls and buttons required of a typical audio player. The program's emphasis is on playback quality and ease of use rather than appearance. However, it is quite capable of downloading album art, song lyrics, album and band information upon request, and displaying them in a clutter-free interface. Having different kinds of audio-file formats in your collection also presents no problem. This player will support virtually every audio format out there. It will provide straight-up music without the bling. Nothing more, nothing less!

One caveat though: While the fully featured AtomicPlayer is easy to install and opens with relative ease, it can be installed on Windows 7 or Vista machines only, having been built exclusively for the Windows Audio Session API. One other issue we did see during the test is that it will install a desktop icon without permission, but this minor issue doesn't offset this straightforward audio benefits.

"Excellent sound, and radio stations to boot!"

March 18, 2014  |  By ok4mi2

 |  Version: AtomicPlayer 3.0.5.37

Pros

If other audio players sound this good, I have yet to hear one. Especially good compared to listening to YouTube directly online (a different problem but what is it with that bad reception? Is it me?)

Cons

None really. Maybe something or another, surely, as it is no doubt not perfect but I don't see anything so far.

Summary

Really good sound. No video capabilities, strictly sound and it has controls and equalizer with more settings available than on other free units I have played.

Pros

- Clean, easy interface
- No adds or upgrade now eye garbage
- Very high quality audio playback
- Seems to play everything -tested wma, flac, mp3

Cons

- feels a little like beta.

Summary

"How Novel, A media player that doesn't play any media!"

March 14, 2012  |  By gazzerjay

 |  Version: AtomicPlayer 3.0.5.37

Pros

Good screen layout and easy to import files

Cons

It doesn't play .mp3, mp4, avi. wma. or Ogg...etc

Summary

I tried the most popular file types and clicked the play button. The time/length was displayed but that's all. I doubt the "Premium" version will be any better. Quux have been recommended to me by friends, but this offering is not exactly a good experience for me. This time I think I'll pass!

"Doesn't work!"

March 12, 2012  |  By GCG1000

 |  Version: AtomicPlayer 3.0.5.37

Pros

Nice GUI and nothing else.

Cons

NO sound, except an annoying hiss from my speakers! Other players work fine. Unresponsive customer support.

Summary

Do get it until they fix it so it runs properly under Win 7!
