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.

"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.
