    I don't know how I was listening to music before. iTunes is garbage compared to this, I don't know why I didn't make the switch sooner. Does anyone have any tips with it? I've been using it for a few weeks, got it mostly down, but wondering if anyone has anything else they like to use with it (plugins)? Most of the plugins I use are DSP ones, and the iPod manager one.

    The only plugins I use are Columns UI and audioscrobbler. I like to keep it simple.

    check this out for minimalism

    Awesome theme. I also use the audioscrobbler like Depravo.

    I'll be honest, I'm quite partial to the black default theme. I love having any programs that I use a LOT in a dark mode, it's so much easier on the eyes, which is why I also use the dark theme on this site.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    What I'd really, really like is some sort of a search bar near the top right like iTunes has. I know you can use the Search menu under Library, which does work the same way, but this saves two clicks. I tried the Quick Search plugin, which I thought would do it. Unless I am missing something, all it does is add a text box you need to call, and upon finishing a search query, enter creates a new playlist with it.

    As far as other plugins, I only have iPod manager (foo_dop)(no Apple FANBOII here, just have an 80Gig classic for the storage space lol); SACD Decoder (foo_input_sacd)(this is great for those SACD ISOs that are so elusive to me - the Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon SACD is AMAZING in 5.1DTS); Effect DSP (foo_dsp_effect)(I don't even use this.)

    For DSPs, I use Resampler (PPHS) @64kHz-Ultra, Advanced Limiter, and Convert Stereo to 4 channels.

    Yech I tried that Dolby 5.1 Headphone setup when I first started using it, and IMO it sounded terrible compared to default 2 channels through headphones.

    I usually listen through a 5.1 system, and any stereo audio is upmixed to 4.0 channel, and 5.1 plays as 5.1 as one would expect.

    I've been using it for years now too, amazing stuff indeed. I really like how customizable it is, but not that hard that a PC illiterate can't figure it out himself.
    Also, on my laptop I've configured it to respond to my FN key + arrow, it worked out pretty well. Good stuff.
