rhythmbox is a itune ripoff for gnome, work pretty well. Amarok is a very good audio player for kde that has advanced fonctions not found in itune and it is surely not lousy

Interesting your parameters to judge things... However you can do that with LADSPA and gstreamer in Amarok. Just so you know... Not stratight off Amarok, but doable nontheless.

you mean an equalizer? amarok has an equalizer.

But that doesn't make an audio player good or bad.

This from the person who believes Windows is always better and easier than Linux. Sorry, but AmaroK is much better than Winamp.

Isn't LTunes just a modified version of Rhythmbox with the name changed?

That's cosmetic, by using gtreamer backend, any program can do that and adding that functionality to rhythmbox should not be too difficult. But the GNOME Desktop has a tool already for that, SoundJucier, which may be enough reason why Rhythmbox does not rip CDs.,
