Which media player should I believe?

When I load a WAV file straight from the recorder I've noticed a major difference in the sound quality that comes out of (a) Windows Media Player, (b) Windows Groove Player, (c) VLC media player, (d) Audacity, and (e) iZotope RX 7 Standard.

I like Groove the best - to my ears tracks sound richer. Hmm, does it massage the sound with reverb and more?

I'm wondering how to get a similar sound in my edited tracks.

I have the Sony PCM-M10 and SD MixPre-6 II. The unedited Sony files sound richer; the SD tracks take more work.

Just wondering which player has the most faithful sound as a guide to start editing files.

Thanks for any help - total noob here.

All or most media players have their own settings for sound. You need to go into each one and set it up they way you want it.
