Audacious is different than most music players because you do not use it just to listen to music or CDs. You can also use it to stream music. Tweak sound with the use of a graphical equalizer and take advantage of the included PADSPA effects.
The interface is modern, GTK-themed and you can also use Winamp classic skins if you prefer that. The plugins included in the freeware software can fetch lyrics for music. Audacious can be used to set morning alarms, and there are many other features you can enjoy.
