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.

    "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 :-)
