I love my foobar2000 for Windows. However, I can see why it can be frustrating for some people. You really need a bit of know-how and patience to get it to your own liking. Out of the box it looks a little too basic, but once you get your head around how to customise it and figure out how to change scripts you can do anything you want with it. I don't even bother with pre-made skins for it anymore as sometimes they can be overkill and affect performance. I prefer to make my own.

For Ubuntu I use a nice little open-source music player called DeaDBeaF. I've tried quite a few music players for Linux but this one is the best I've come across. It offers some degree of customisation, which is some I feel lacks with a lot of Linux music players and it seems to sound better than the likes of Audacious.

I use Poweramp on my phone and it's definitely worth paying the little bit of money for. It looks great and it's very simple to use. I'm not too fond of Android's stock music player.

MediaMonkey, JRivers, occasionally AIMP.
Depending on what I want to get done...

For sound quality, in my ears, nothing beats a home stereo system.

I always get an error message when I install that. Though I have just tried the "Safe Mode" and that seems to be working so far.

You might want to try musicbee..I switched from winamp classicpro 2 aluminium(Pretty much an upgraded big bento skin) to musicbee. It gets updated very frequently. it takes a while to set it up like I wanted it, but it's pretty damn customisable.If something simple is not in, you can always ask on the forums and it might get added in the next update, since he works on musicbee a lot, there's plenty of nice features ^.^.

Mine looks like this right now, but it looked pretty different when I first started it. http://puu.sh/79duH.
You can give it the winamp big bento style artwork view, but somehow, you can't pick the tracks at the bottom that way. Only next to the albums themselves. Somone on the forums mentioned this, I hope it gets added soon.

There's also a mini player which you can dock ofcourse. example of the mini:
http://puu.sh/79dNY (top right)
You can also show the now playing list with it: http://puu.sh/79dOw

There's also compact player mode, and theater mode. Here's an example what that compact can look like: http://puu.sh/79dR6. it cycles through artist images, but keep in mind this is also a custumized one.(you customie just by browsing menus)

Theater mode has various different looks. For example, you can pick one that almost looks like the music player on an xbox(intentionally).

iTunes master race

But thats only because i hate change and Ive used it for so long. I also like the view where you look at all your albums and when you click an album cover it expands and fills with the most prominent color of the album cover.

Oooh, you're using classic winamp. Somehow the old skins make me confused, I'm not sure why. It just makes me autistic xD. Maybe it's the fact that it's not one big window(which I can also do with my player but I don't really see the point)

I liked the simplicity..I just didn't like the fact that every skin would crash on me :c. I spent so much time to get it to work that day that I gave up. I had to do so many reinstalls....

iTunes on my computer because inertia. On my iPhone, I use the shitty native music app in the car and Rondo (a great app that replicates the experience of listening to speakers in different size rooms) when I'm using headphones.
