I'm happy this thread was resurrected since it increases its hit count on google with the word "SCAM" front and center for all the world to see.

He's so surreal I'd first thought it to be just spam.

Maybe he's just someone who, at one of Jplay's folks' request, created this account with the sole purpose of desperately promoting a DOA product, as I see it.


BTW: #6 search result on Google - and closing in!

For me even #4, and not alone: #5 reads "JPLAY - not recommended" by JRiver:
QUOTE
JRiver recommends that you uninstall Jplay. It adds a layer of sound processing that can degrade sound quality, performance, and stability.

You will achieve the best sound quality with JRiver alone.

The author of the foobar [sic] player agrees.

http://www.google.com/trends/explore#cat=0...+3-m&cmpt=q

I wonder how much of that is our (I mean, Mike's) doing?? unsure.gif



Maybe it's all my browser's cache's fault, but I've got #5 at most on google.

Are you guys typing 'jplay' or what for a search term?

Unfortunately, this topic isn't on first page when you're googling from a french IP, even with an "all languages" setting. Will the moderators allow me a single sentence in a non-english language?

Jplay - une arnaque de plus ? LA REPONSE EST OUI !

Thank you! tongue.gif

Regarding positions in Google search results, they might differ due to personalisation of results... Audiophools might not see that Jplay is a scam at all... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filter_bubble
