This is so close to be perfect (it actually is perfect)
No need for several codecs and converters, it does it all and plays it all (okay, you will have to dl some components and may want lame.exe and/or flac.exe, but when all is set, you have a very powerful player/program.)

foobar2000 is one of few really top notch applications ever created for the Windows platform. And i may go as far to say that i prefer it to any audio player available for Linux or Mac OS X.
It is true that people have different tastes and preferences but i just can not see why any one would choose WMP, WinAmp or iTunes for that matter over foobar2000 unless you own an iPod and make use of the iTunes store in such of a case maybe iTunes would be your preferable option.
Personally foobar2000 does it for me as the sole Audio player on my system.
Low system resources footprint, efficient, easy to use and i personally love the GUI as it is very effective.
