I'm a snob  ;D

But.. anything is better than audacity on the Mac. Maybe it works better on other platforms, but I've always found it way too slow even on dual and quad core Macs.

My favorite software for this is WaveEditor. I and others have listed a ton of options for you and even included links in the "where do I find..." topic that is a sticky at the top of this forum.

I'm a Logic Express/ Sound Studio guy, but I did look at Amadeus Pro.  I think that is a little cheaper than SoundStudio, so you may want to take a look at that.

I use Sound Studio and Wave Editor. I've found Wave Editor to be very clunky and not intuitive thus far. But, I like the iZotope resampler and dither routine, so I need to spend more time with WE to figure all that out.

I am doing everything in Digital Performer right now, though I've been eyeing Wave Editor and iZotope RX for specifically editing 2 channel stuff.

While Audacity sure ain't great, I've used it for several years with great success and few complaints.  As you know, it hasn't cost me a dime.  If you have basic, straightforward editing to do (cut tracks, create fades, minor amplification or normalization) or small amounts of more complicated editing (high pass filtering, volume envelopes), it's a fine and dandy program, IMO.  I'll spend money when I need something more complex, but since I typically record in ideal, simple situations (on stage, two track stereo mixes, primarily), I've really got no need at this time. 

I also think it's a great way to learn without spending any dough.  Once you've maxed out its limitations, you'll know what you need and want to spend your money on.   :)
