    This looks like it could be promising, and it runs on real computers and Dells alike :p

    I've got a related question -- I'm looking for a quick and easy way to preview MP3s before importing them into ITunes. Obviously I could just do this in the Finder, but often I want to know what the bitrate of an MP3 is, and I haven't figured out how to make the Finder show me this information.

    Before I switched to the Mac I just had Winamp set as my default audio player for files I clicked in in Win Explorer; I would preview MP3s using it, check out the bitrate, audio quality, etc., and decide if I wanted to keep it, and then import it into ITunes, which is what I used for all my playback. I downloaded a couple of small-ish audio applications for OS X, but none of them gave me bitrate information about the file that I was playing. (At least, not quickly & obviously, which is the whole point.)

    Is there a small-footprint audio player that will do what I want? (Or, better yet, is there an easy way to get Finder to tell me bitrate info about a file?)

    Thanks!
