Vox: a free, lightweight audio player for Mac OS X

An alternative to iTunes, VLC and, maybe, the new Songbird from Mozilla: Vox comes in quite handy when you need to play an album without the need for importing into iTunes.

Free, lightweight and functional: Vox sports a minimalistic look, doesn’t rely on the same Quicktime codecs and therefore allows playback of some hard-to-play formats such as FLAC, MP3, AAC, Musepack, Monkey’s Audio, OGG Vorbis, Apple Lossless, AIFF, WAV, IT, MOD, XM, Games Music and many others.

The main windows, simple yet efficient, can be enriched by equalizer, special effects and search add-on windows.

In addition to this [that’s really cool] Vox can be used a conversion tool TO common audio formats like Wav, AAC, MP3, Flac and Ogg Vorbis.
