REVIEW:

Perhaps this is the best audio player on Linux. It can play pretty much any formats, it can also stream from online sources + you can even add in radio stations. You can create as many playlists as you want and tweak pretty much everything about its interface. You can use it in simple mode (small – compact) or extended mode.
