Honestly, I'm going to abstain this year. I've been mostly streaming my music in Firefox, and when I did listen to digital files I just fired up whatever random app took my fancy and didn't have a favorite.

Currently, cmus looks like a good option for me. I still try to stay away from streaming and I don't really need MPD's network features. Clementine comes as a close second though.

still using MOC, but i'm not voting for it.
it has a very annoying bug that makes the whole thing freeze for a few seconds whenever a .m3u playlist is loaded; that's the simple format that just consists of a list of URLs or files.

what i miss with most players are saveable lists of playlists (because of my radio listening habits).

Audacious. Simple and effective.

You use both ncmpcpp and clerk? Surely not at the same time?

Incidentally, setting up mpd, mopidy, ncmpcpp and cava (probably with ncmpcpp in a top tmux split and cava in a bottom tmux split) is on my todo list for this year.

Indeed I launch clerk alone but pretty sure that it uses ncmpcpp to build the queue tab and keybindings.

None I've used seem to do exactly what I want, but thanks to a little research I did find how to do something pretty important to me in Rhythmbox , and it is default in Ubuntu so I'm used to it, so, I'll keep looking for THE ONE, but until then, guess I'll use what comes close.

Though I do really like Amarok.....:-)

MPlayer (SMPlayer actually) doesn't matter much with my hearing.

i think it's a myth that different audio players produce different (better or worse) sound.
except if they use their own codecs to decode lossily compressed audio.
beyond that, it's the linux sound system and ultimately the sound card

I'm surprised mpv is here, since it's also in the video player category. But, since it's here, I may as well vote for it (also because it's awesome). I like to use find, shuf, and grep to build a playlist (m3u), and load it into mpv.

Clementine is my favorite, since it has a nice look, and (thus far) as avoided a serious condition, which I have named "flat and ugly GUI syndrome".
