Looking for a simple music player that does just what it has to do: play music? Well, Symfonie is what you might have been looking for.
Symfonie has a simple and fast interface, folder-based browsing (which I myself find much more comfortable than the Artist-Album-Song etc. that the most of the players have) an equalizer and a few other things, such as a sleep timer and speed control.
The simpleness of the design also makes Symfonie less resource-hungry than most other players out there, compared to Mediabox, OMP and a few others, Symfonie takes around 1/3 less RAM and significantly less CPU.
A little drawback I found is that the sound controlling button pulls out a whole pop-up with a giant slider. While that helps to cut it away from the file browser, I’d rather have a small slider over/under the browser. But with the volume control keys it’s not much of a problem.
So, if you’re interested in a simple player, give Symfonie a try, fetch it from Extras with:
apt-get install symfonie
I found the player great to keep around, and perhaps, you will too.
