Under Ubuntu 9.10 I have 2 music players appearing to use replaygain properly and providing gapless playback for flac files: mpd with gmpc and Rhythmbox (needs a plugin for replaygain). Both took a lot more effort to get working than the "equivalent" windows apps (such as foobar2000), but now they are working the usability is pretty similar (and constrained by the screen space available on a netbook). Given the "simple" requirements (replaygain, gapless and no SQ degradation from the OS & app), are there any SQ or other reasons to pick either solution (mpd / gmpc v Rhythmbox) over the other?
