Is there an iTunes alternative available, which has a simple GUI (like the good old foobar/Winamp f.e.) and does have a sync option for iPhone/iPod? For movies and tv series iTunes is a great tool (in connection with an Apple TV), but i like a simple folder structure - customized to my prefs - much more easier to manage. If there a players with a simple GUI - Artist/Album + Artwork would suffice - and you need an extra app for syncing - i could live with that, as long as syncing is not getting too complicated. One of the many reasons for this is, that iTunes sometimes "looses" single files from my library and I'm fed up with re-ripping CDs, because iTunes lost a single file again. No, i don't have a library backup, just because it's too big for this. I have approx. 1600 albums in lossless quality in my collection, that's almost 6TB. This behavior happened in all versions of iTunes over the last 5 years, even with different hard disks for my media library. For me it is definitely an issue with iTunes/OSX.
