Audacity, for radio, local stuff and because all the stuff can be organised in tabs, your selection stays there (VLC makes you rebuild your list) and...it works...

Now this category I don't think I can vote in ... I kind of like RhythmBox, Banshee, Guayadeque, Amarok and Audacious and I've begun to try out Exaile and Clementine ... but I'm not really happy with any of them.

LOL

Couldn't have said it better myself.

While you definitely can play audio in VLC and MPlayer, these are not their main uses.

The info on MPlayer website says:
Quote:
MPlayer is a movie player which runs on many systems
VLC says:
Quote:
VLC is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework that plays most multimedia files as well as DVD, Audio CD, VCD, and various streaming protocols.
Ok, this one actually mentions audio but I guess VLC is mostly used as a video player (IMO) and therefore belongs there.

As Jeremy mentioned a few times, it's difficult to come to a consensus (that would please everyone) as a lot of programs span a number of categories.
