Today, Winamp announced a new, desktop version of its popular music management software, Winamp 5.6. When paired with Winamp for Android, the company boasts that its software is a “complete end-to-end music management solution for your desktop and Android device.” As the press release explains:

Winamp 5.6 features a new device management interface that supports wireless syncing of media, simple management of multiple connected devices and faster encoding and transferring of media to your devices over USB or WiFi. Stream media from a connected device without the need of transferring media to the local library. Wireless device syncing and streaming only available with Winamp for Android installed.

If you have an Android device, a Windows-based PC, and no particular allegiance to a media player, give the Winamp system a shot. After all, it really whips the llamas ass.
