Wow! Most of my favorite podcasts have bad production. Compression is a necessity. A long time ago I gave up looking for a portable solution. Until now I have never seen an audio player with this much control of the audio. There's high pass, low pass, two EQs with Q level control, and a compressor. You can even change the sequence of these effects. Amazing!

Shows lots of info, which I appreciate. Like the real-time bitrate of vbr files. Also, I think the UI is fine, and you can customize it a lot. I have no idea what people are expecting when they complain about the UI. It is intimidating at first because there are so many controls and options. I take screenshots of the original settings whenever I change things. Would be cool if we could sync or back up settings. Overall I am impressed with it.

Overall this app is fantastic. It is the first music playback app I have tried that allows more varied customization of the interface. My pet peeve with a lot of apps is location and size of buttons, and font size. With this app I can make the font pretty big and even customize the colors. The one thing that would be great to see with the font sizing is more vertical space between text lines and/or listings of titles. It turns out the larger you make a font, the more crowded the field/view screen. For me larger text and control buttons are important, especially while driving.
