I was wondering If people had a application they could recommend as a good audio application. I use audacious as my way to listen to music but Is there something better?

I've tried songbird, VLC, and Amarok but Is there something which is all in one but for GNOME?

Everything you mentioned is for Gnome or KDE or XFCE etc. Gnome is just the desktop but you just need to find a linux based player you like. I like and use xmms for Ubuntu but it is no longer in the repositories but you can find adeb package via google for hardy that will let you install it easily. I like xmms because it uses almost no resources and is small and easy to use and works to play music and web audio broadcasts I sometimes listen to.

VLC is a good player too but I just use it to play videos and DVD's but it will serve nicely as an audio player as well. Also although I uninstall it there is Totem player in Ubuntu by default so you could try that as well.
