I haven't tried that many players, but I recently threw out Amarok in favour of cmus, which is a terminal-based music player.


Fantastic! I like running a music player in the terminal, and there's quite a lot of functionality. It's up and running in a split second, and I've got music without soaking up megabytes of my precious RAM!
