Win32: Audacious GTK UI is using wrong font (workaround inside)
the GTK UI of audacious-3.4.3a-win32 and audacious-3.5-alpha1-win32 is using a wrong font by default.
Why wrong? Because it's not the native Windows UI font.
The native Windows UI Font is "Segoe UI" @ 9pt.
I was able to fix this issue by editing /etc/gtk-3.0/settings.ini to look like this:
[Settings] gtk-icon-theme-name = gnome gtk-font-name = Segoe UI 9
This makes Audacious use the correct font inside the GTK UI, which looks a heck of a lot better / more native.
Therefore i suggest to add this line to future releases of Audacious Win32 or, if possible, to fix the actual root cause of this issue.
Before you say "But the native UI font in Windows XP is "Tahoma" @ 8pt":
In just a few days, Windows XP will be EOL, at least AFAIK. And the native UI font in all Windows releases after Windows XP is "Segoe UI" @ 9pt.

Not really a complete fix. Changing gtk-font-name won't change the font used in the info bar nor those used in the Winamp interface. Whatever Pango considers a good alternative for "Sans" (which turns out to be Tahoma, I guess) will still be used in those places.
