Open Cubic Player (as I've stated yearly since joining)... please add to list, as it's probably oldest one mentioned in this thread, if you count it continued from Cubic Player on MS-DOS in early 1990s, when it wasn't even standard for computers to have a graphical user interface (GUI) at least as operating system (Apple was a small exception for people who could afford.) The old Cubic Player had some of the best graphics ever for a music player, as it was part of the hacker Demoscene (code, graphics, art, music demonstrations.)

I voted for dead Deadbeef. Definitely one of my favorite discoveries last year.

BUT... the reason I switched away from Audacious was because it wasn't working with my USB DAC. I just tried it again, and it's working now! I'll probably switch back to Audacious.

I prefer Banshee, but I wish it worked with the media keys on the keyboard and also that its lyrics plugin was available on Debian Buster. Aside from those two issues, it's a very nice audio player.

For me, it's got to be DeaDBeef. One of the most versatile audio players I've ever found....and it just gets better, release after release. I used to use Audacious, but the last few versions have gotten increasingly buggy.....

I was the only one to vote Sayonara :-P
Last year I voted Amarok. This year I voted sayonara because its memory usage does not increase with time when playing stream links, in opposition to the Amarok behavior...
