This is how you listen to music like a pro… I’ve used XMMS, Winamp, Foobar2000, Amarok, Rhythmbox, Banshee, Clementine, Audacious…

But so far nothing beats, XMMS2 with nyxmms2 and xmms2-scrobbler. And see if you can beat that Mem and CPU usage with any of the players above… Its just about as good as it gets.

Features:

Wide format support
Play mp3, mp4, vorbis, aac, alac, wma, mac, sid, mod, wav, flac, mpc, speex, wavpack, flv, nsf, spc, nsfe, gbs, gym, vgm, sap, ay, tta and shn files.

Transports
Play from local files, over http, samba, daap and mms.

Playlists
Add tracks from rss, xml, asx, xspf, html, m3u, pls, and cue files.

Flexible transform chain concept
Allows for more flexible access to media. (e.g. play mp3 files from a Samba share without having to mount it on the local filesystem)

Medialib
Database-driven media library stores metadata about songs as they’re played, so songs can be quickly recalled and new playlists easily made. The media library can be easily queried and managed using Collections.

Other
Gapless playback, coverart extraction.

And in case you dont like command lines for some reason, it has a heap of clients and different interfaces already built and ready to use.
