Amarok, took some serious fussing to get it to run in SUSE 10.0 out of the box, (Darn you Helix engine!) but once up I've never looked back. Even iTunes lacks features Amarok has...

no mpd

I know it's kind-of designed for remote access but I love the way it works in both X and console.. and it has some nice frontends ( sonata my current fave )

You were going to vote for an AmaroK clone, but since it isn't available...XMMS??! Not AmaroK?

I agree that both VLC and mplayer deserve the opportunity to compete as audio as well as video players - both belong at the top of either category. Also, how about madplay?

Amarok it is the best audio player. I like philosofy: audio player for music, video player for video.

I used to be XMMS through and through, but recently Amarok has stolen my heart
I would probably have removed KDE from my box if it weren't for Amarok

Although it may be a little premature for this year, I think Songbird ( is going to be a big player as soon as they get a 1.0 release out. A browser based on Firefox, audio on GStreamer...Ohhh, heaven!

Anyway, Rhythmbox is awesome and gets better everyday.
