Whilst I am content with Amarok I have installed and been trying Exaile as a player for my (somewhat large) mp3 library.

Exaile is a little bit on the plain side but I intend to try and produce a layout that is more appealing to me once I have got my head around Glade Interface Design.

In the meantime, though, Exaile music reproduction tends to intermittently break up and distort after 30 or so minutes of play. Can't figure out why this might be as Amarok plays and plays for hours without a hitch.

The short answer to my problem is, of course, why consider changing from Amarok when it performs so well. Nevertheless, I wonder if any other users have experienced this or if anyone has a clue as to why Exaile gives up the ghost in this way.
