"Keep losing my music"

June 21, 2015  |  By lot812

 |  Version: JetAudio Basic 8.1.3

Pros

has many functions if you can figure them out.

Cons

There has to be a better media program for music.
This one is rather complicated to use. Try to listen to saved play lists and it removes you current music.
Impossible to find music you had downloaded to jet audio.
Keep Losing my music on my PC. Lost thousands of songs.
Easy for Microsoft to remove your music, too.
No protected for you music.

Summary

Updates removes my music. Look for something else.

April 11, 2015  |  By SeePeeEff

Pros

Does most of what it promises. Looks nice.

No sound on some Quicktime files. Installer/updater forces spyware/adware at several stages.

Install carefully, update manually.

"Extremely unimpressed with the latest "upgrade""

October 04, 2014  |  By GwynG

 |  Version: JetAudio Basic 8.1.2

Pros

Lots of features, plays many different audio/video formats

Cons

Current "upgrade" is bundleware, which has never been the case in the past...and the "installation" program keeps failing to install the program.

Summary

I've been a loyal user of JetAudio Basic for a number of years and have considered it one of my essential software programs. However, to say that I'm disappointed and unimpressed with the latest "upgrade" is an understatement. For one thing, the installation file for the latest version comes bundled with a couple of browser add-ons which it will install unless you do a "custom" installation and decline the software. They've never done this before, and it doesn't leave a good impression since this is the sort of thing that tends to be associated with the dodgier kinds of software. To put the cherry on the cake, it looks as if the option to decline the other software may be misleading...because even though I ran the installation program several times (declining the additional software each time), I couldn't actually get it to install Jet Audio which is what it's supposed to do. I'm extremely reluctant to accept software I didn't ask for in order to get Jet Audio, especially when I'm given the false impression that I'm allowed a choice in the matter. To sum up, whatever new management has taken control of Jet Audio has taken what was (in my opinion) a reliably good and trustworthy product and is to all appearances turning it into a piece of crap.

"Great...except for a few faetures - plus Watch Out"

August 02, 2014  |  By Imogen7Ryan

 |  Version: JetAudio Basic 8.1.2

Pros

It is by far the best Music Management software for a free price tag. Loving the Equalizer, it really does make your Laptops speakers sound tons better! It is fast to start and stop, both actions are smoothly done. Very easy to scroll through albums and tracks, it even automatically grabbed the artist and track titles. And that's just scratching the surface.

Cons

Radio feature is rubbish, there are very few stations which are only downloadable in a .pls format which Jet doesn't play and VLC cannot either and that's saying something; so useless there.

'Free Tracks' - yeah, the first 50 and then some of the prices of albums are way over priced, so a con there too.

Now the WATCH OUT bit.... this program is so sneaky as it tries to get you to download stuff in all manner of ways: I had to be on super-vigilance-alert all the time as it changes tack to confuse. so, PLEASE be Careful.

Summary

Bar all the crap that Jet tries to sneakily install, it is a fantastic Music Management system and player. The Equalizer is the best bit giving you total freedom to mess around until you get the right sound and you can save it too.

The layout or UI is pleasing on the eye - far more than the others and reliable. I have only scratched the surface, but I think there are lots more great stuff Jet can do. Try it, but you have been warned to vigillantly watch out for its tricks to get you to install stuff.... That's why it gets 4/5 stars. Good luck :-)

"JetAudio Basic**** 5 STARS****"

July 20, 2014  |  By tryingalways

 |  Version: JetAudio Basic 8.1.2

Pros

For the sound, options, PLAY BACK OF AUDIO AND VIDEO.... if you do not have a good video and sound cards, you are not going to get what this player / recorder can do. A good EQ, presets and two custom sets. Playing of many video and audio formats. The BEST VISUALULIZATIONS FOR ANY PLAYER I HAVE SEEN TO GO ALONG WITH YOUR MUSIC. Looks great on a HD TV with it reminds you then why you bought a HD TV.

Cons

Learning all of what the options you can control to make things be better or fit your needs...didn't take long though to learn

Summary

Media Monkey, Winamp and Jet Audio, I do not recommend for the beginner, That is why I think why the other people have given this player / recorder a bad review, another reason is the computer it has been downloaded down to. Without a good sound card and speakers. Not recommended for ant type of laptop or tablet, for they cannot produce good sound even with a good sound card unless you are going to listen to the music through a good pair of headphones / in-ear Stereophones with double or triple Flange (fits in ear better and is much more comfortable) , Like Koss, Klipsch, Sennheiser to name a few.
