I'm looking to upgrade from iTunes because latest versions are ridiculously slow.

I don't need a lot of features. I think I need:
* Compatibility with iTunes playlists and tags (and some kind of "smart" playlists would be nice)
* Ability to preview through separate audio channel
* Difficult to interrupt playing song
* Ability to handle a lot of music quickly (380 gigs)

What software are you using? What features should I be looking for?

Thanks,
Brian

I use JRiver Media Center. It's a very full featured library and playlist manager, can cue through multiple outputs, can handle my 50k library just fine, and doesn't use the spacebar for start/stop.

I'm also looking for a new media player, with mostly the same requirements. I have used songbird in the past and don't really like how it was working with my system. I have a separate tagger, so I am really just looking for something light to play the files, though I store most of them on an external hard drive. I am looking at Jaangle, winamp, and foobar. Any opinions?

Oh... and I'm not a paid DJ, so I am looking for something simple and free.

If all you need is a player and not library management, then winamp or VLC are nice simple options.

I use winamp for playout. I use itunes for management and can drag and drop songs into winamp.
