Don’t know why I sent the previous message before finishing it.
I have used Aqualung, Audacious & DeadBeef throughout today for listening to a great variety of music, podcasts and the live stream of Linux Outlaws. and all of them coped perfectly well.  The one area they struggled with was the initial scanning of my music collection, currently nearly 28,000 tracks at 200 GiB.  I abandoned it after a couple of hours as none appeared to be more than ⅓ the way through,  Rhythmbox only takes 2 hours from a clean install.  I don’t really organise my music with the player, so didn’t investigate that side of things.  Generally I just want the player to play tracks at random while I’m working at the computer and all of them did this.
I’ll leave others, who need play lists, etc. to discuss those aspects.
