Editors' Review

+

JetAudio Basic gives you the tools to manage multiple types of media through one versatile program with options for both video and audio files. With this program, you can maximize the potential of your equipment while also customizing the app to suit your specific needs.

Pros

Equalizer performance: The Equalizer included in this app works very well, and it will greatly enhance the quality of everything you choose to play. It allows you to hear individual instruments during playback, as well as distinct vocal tracks -- and it will greatly enhance the quality of your listening experience overall.

Automatic additions: When you're setting up this program, all you have to do is let it scan your computer for media files, and it will add them automatically. Even a large library can be added seamlessly using this feature, and you'll immediately have all of your audio and video files in the same place.

Cons

Poor video quality: While this program does play video files, its main purpose really seems to be audio playback. You certainly can play video through this app, but if that's your main intent, a more dedicated video program may be a better option.

Steep learning curve: This program's interface is not terribly attractive or intuitive. Experienced users will find their way around without too much trouble, but the learning curve is especially steep for newcomers to this type of software.

Bottom Line

JetAudio Basic provides a lot of nice features in a free and highly customizable package. But in order to really get the most out of this app, you need to have some experience with this type of program or dedicate some time to learning how to take advantage of all it has to offer.

"It Will Deceptively Screw Up Your System"

December 02, 2015  |  By Sword777

2015-12-02 11:09:49  |  By Sword777

 |  Version: JetAudio Basic 8.1.4.303

Pros

None. After loosing my trust by changing my computer set up and loading unwanted software on my system, I got rid of it.

Cons

- Loaded unwanted software on my system, even with choosing custom install.
- Turned off my Firewall
- Turned off my security based browser extensions, such as NoScript & Adblock, which had to be reinstalled to restore them.
- Changed my Home page on all browsers.
- Had to use System Restore to make sure I undid all it's changes.

Summary

Recommend staying far, far away from this program and it really shouldn't even be aloud on cnet in it's current form. If you do try it, be aware of all the changes, so you can quickly reverse whatever is obvious and re-secure your system. It was very disappointing and a huge waist of time and I can not rate it low enough.

"Can't install"

October 21, 2015  |  By csg_1027

2015-10-21 19:44:36  |  By csg_1027

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

I like version 8.1.3.2200

Cons

The installer I got from download.com is JAD8104_PLUS_VX_u-62905267.exe, and it tries to install the Plus option of Jet Audio.

Summary

Seems like someone directed the "Download" button for Jet Audio Basic to the wrong file.

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

has many functions if you can figure them out.

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.

"Extremely unimpressed with the latest "upgrade""

October 04, 2014  |  By GwynG

2014-10-04 19:47:29  |  By GwynG

 |  Version: Not Found

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.
