    Best Ubuntu MP3 player?

    Well, I'm currently using Rhythmbox
    I noticed, though, that WMP on windows has much better sound quality

    If one takes only sound quality into consideration, what is the best MP3 player on Ubuntu?

    I prefer Amarok on KDE but on GNOME I prefer Exaile since it allows me to control it more easily than Amarok and has a lot of the features found on Amarok.
    Think carefully before executing commands containing "rm", especially "sudo rm -rf ", if you require more information concerning this matter, read this.
    I am an experimenter, give me the most stable OS and I can make it unstable in a few hours.

    No-one has listened to the question. I think all the media players so far have been based on either the gstreamer or xine multimedia playback engines. So the quality of sound is going to be purely dependent on the mp3 decoder you haver installed for each and the drivers for your soundcard. Since you're currently using Rhythmbox (gstreamer) i'd recommend giving a xine based player a go and comparing them.

    XMMS is based on Xine engine
