It runs without any extra hardware, and offers a wide range of advanced features including comprehensive MIDI controller and vinyl control support. To obtain the lowest latency and highest responsiveness, it uses hardware video acceleration and takes advantage of multi-core CPUs.
Mp3blaster is an interactive text-based program that plays several audio file types (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, wav, and sid). It is one of the few audio players for the text console that allows full interactive control during playback. One of its key features is the ability to compose a very flexible playlist (while playing!). It plays most MP3 formats and has full mixer support built in.
MP3 STATION is a LIRC-aware, plain-text tool set for managing MP3 playback in a car or home with as little user interaction as possible. It can restart the last playlist at the last played track/frame, transparently load directories, transparently recompile playlists, and keep a repository of all the playlists. It also has two simple clients for communicating with cm3s (a curses console client and a very basic one on a parallel port). All programs run under a non-privileged user account.

It also acts as a sound daemon that is able to accept connections from other somaplayers or any other sound player (xmms, mpg123, and others) thanks to a special wrapper.
irrKlang is a high level 2D and 3D cross platform sound engine and audio library that plays WAV, MP3, OGG, MOD, XM, IT, S3M, and other file formats.

It has all of the features common to low-level audio libraries as well as lots of useful features like a sophisticated streaming engine, extendable audio reading, single and multi-threading modes, 3D audio emulation for low-end hardware, a plugin system, multiple rolloff models, sound effects, and more.
