I never used iTunes (hypeToons), I just saw some people use it. For me, all
I need is something that plays music and let's me change track
with global keyboard accelerators, so I use Minirok, based on Amarok 
but much lighter. Sometimes I use command-line mplayer, when I want to just repeatedly
play particular segments of a track. http://schestowitz.com/Weblog/archives/2011/04/10/mplayer-and-bash/

Music-playing need *not* be a whole SUITE, it just need to decode. There's
no difference in quality.
