Following on from the iPod thread, what PC/Mac apps do folk use to play their tuneage?

I've used Windows Media Player thus far, but its library mechanism won't work with m4a files.

I'm thinking about Winamp, but it's been some time since I last looked at it. Any good?

What is that devilment?

I use Windows Media PLayer. I tried Winamp earlier this year. Not a patch on what it used to be, far to busy for my liking, so I went back to WMP.

I only use Spotify. Not much time to listen when on the go.

For 30 a built-in unlimited MP3 encoder looks appealing.

iTunes for me, too. For converting analogue to digital I've used Final Vinyl and Amadeus.
