For me, it is fun and satisfying when I'm successful in removing or reducing artifacts and having the music sound better (clear and vibrant) to my ears on my equipment.

Great digital music sound depends on what you start and end with (the quality of the digital file and of the speaker system) and not so much on what is in between. I love Winamp because it helps me manager my collection, supports skins, and supports so many plug-ins to help tweak all sorts of stuff. Skins like yours give me something great to look at, and/or enhance the UI, which is the icing on the cake.
