DJ / Music box systems what is the best
 
Sounds like a beginners query doesn't it?

I like all sorts of music and lately I have found that Microsofts Media-PLayer just doesn't do the job I want.

I just downloaded "Winamp" and it is better but I'm still learning its features.

The question is : What do you want?

Checkout J.River Media Center. It is IMO the best and most complete software package under Windows.
They even support Wasapi mode for best sound quality.

If you look for serious DJ software (and HW), checkout Native Instruments Traktor Pro.

Depending on what you want to do, you might try Jingle Palette freeware. It allows you to assign tracks and they are available for instant playback by simply clicking on the button to which they are assigned.

Check MediaMonkey and XMBC.

I'm looking for a program that will allow me to file multiple copies with similar titles as I do listen to quite a bit of classical music.
If possible one that stores music as other than compressed MP3 files, new hard discs with Terabytes of data space are making MP3/MP4 unnecessary except for portable devices'

Music MatchJB for instance spits the dummy ( in W2k ) if I try and save two or more versions of a classical album by different orchestras.
Not really for disco/juke box pro work, home listening and transcription work , I have still to start moving a lot of my vinyl to disk

I hesitate to say it, but iTunes? iTunes files music by performer/album/song, so there's no problem with same song title by different artist / orchestra / conductor. It plays files in wav, aiff, mp3, mp4, and AAC format. It plays 24/96 uncompressed. It doesn't have built-in decoders for ogg or flac. It's free. It will play a library on a remote server. It's a good librarian and jukebox. It's not for editing music. Windows and MacOS only.

Check out PVR software as well; some include support for audio playback.

I think I forgot the most important bit of information.
I didn't like the licensing arrangement with MS XP so I am still using Win2K

iTunes for W2K SP4 is still available:
http://support.apple.com/downloads/i...r_Windows_2000

That's what I'm using. I'm not thrilled with later versions of Windows "Genuine Advantage" whereby some remote server determines if my machine will run.

Second that, also runs on W2K. Although it is not free, it is the most comprehensive media organiser I know of. Besides that it has a very good DSP engine and plays through ASIO as well as Wasapi. The latest beta version 14 even loads your files completely in RAM for playback, greatly relaxing disk load and/or network load. And much, much more: http://www.jrmediacenter.com/ Forum: http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/

There is also a free version available for music only: http://www.mediajukebox.com/
