COWON Media Center - jetAudio

CNET Editors' review

During installation, you have to be careful if you don't want to set JetAudio Basic as the default application for audio and video files. However, the freeware application gives you plenty of reasons to make it your only player.

The interface has a modern design that looks like an equalizer. You can customize each section of the program, from CD ripping to format conversion, to your heart's content. The program can convert files among some a number of formats, as well as read and edit MP3 tags. The built-in Cross-fader, Reverb, and Wide-sound modes provide a nice touch not found in most MP3 players. The program becomes truly unique with its clock, however, which features a timer and an alarm. We also appreciate the inclusion of a tool for seeking out song lyrics.

Our only quibble is it treats a playlist as an album but uses the artist as its primary key field, making it difficult to locate mixes. JetAudio Basic's appealing product set should attract audiophiles.

    "Better than Winamp"

    March 9, 2011  |   By Weskerohm

    Version: COWON Media Center - jetAudio 8.0.11

    Pros

    Winamp makes me feel so frustrated due to some repeat song track bugs and rebooted so many times. I just uninstalled my Winamp. So i decided to try out JetAudio. I tested every single function for 3 hrs. Wat can i say? WONDERFUL & AWESOME!

    Cons

    None yet and i hope not.

    Summary

    Strongly recommended music player to use!

    "If you want to convert Videos..."

    January 30, 2011  |   By WkedRaider

    Version: COWON Media Center - jetAudio 8.0.11

    Pros

    Nice interface.

    Cons

    It only allows you to convert 30 seconds of your original file. If you want more, you have to purchase the program.

    ":( This stinks!"

    January 29, 2011  |   By InfinityPlayer

    Version: COWON Media Center - jetAudio 8.0.11

    Pros

    Just like others have said, none that i could find, yet

    Cons

    Each time i tried to put my music collection on this program from my computer, it stopped working! Which is, needless to say, annoying in the extreme. Other programs are better, like the standard WMP that comes with windows.

    Summary

    I wouldn't even bother with the download. Stick with the easier and simpler programs, like WMP that comes with windows, or try RealPlayer or WinAmp, if it's still made. :) This is nothing but disappointing.

    "Just wasn't my cup of tea..."

    January 28, 2011  |   By MonikaX

    Version: COWON Media Center - jetAudio 8.0.11

    Pros

    Easy to install.. Relatively fast speed when running or pulling up the program

    Cons

    Weird interface - too many screens to have open to control various features, such as video, play list, or music playback.

    If you are not paying attention, you will install the Ask toolbar along with the original software

    Summary

    After seeing this product was the top in music management software, I had to try it. Installation was very simple, but you definitely need to watch out for the Ask Toolbar install. When I first ran it, I liked that it was quick to pull up and did not cause any major lag. I felt the entire interface was just basic and not very appealing, maybe this can be changed with skins. All in all.. I just did not like it.
