    "The most comprehensive media player software available."

    April 16, 2012  |   By pwurso

    Pros

    Audiophile quality:
    Audio is bit perfect. This means that it can output your CDs, your HD audio (88.1 KHz, 176 KHz, and more), your DSD, and any other audio perfectly to your DAC.

    64 bits of precision:
    Most high-end hardware uses 24-bit output, meaning the engine has an additional 240 dB of precision above the hardware's output. As a result, should you choose to use them, digital volume, room correction, and other audio functions are pristine.

    Supports WAV, AIFF, FLAC, APE, WMA Lossless, Apple Lossless, and WavPack.

    VST plug-in support.

    Video:
    Plays DVD and Blu-ray, streaming video from Netflix or Hulu, Youtube clips and movies, etc.

    MC can record TV in high definition, providing an alternative to cable TV.

    Cons

    There aren't any.

    Summary

    I've been using JRiver Media Center for several years now and it is unmatched in it's quality, versatility, performance, and robustness. If you're serious about audio or video entertainment, JRiver is king.
