 How does amaroK r0X0rz?

"The second thing I like about amaroK stems from being able to not use arts, i.e., it's multiple multimedia engine framework. Currently amaroK supports gstreamer, NMM, MAS and xine and more is probably one the way. This has it's good points and it's bad points, but is more boon than bane in my opinion. On the plus side if one engine decides it want to be anal retentive today you can switch to another and not be arsed with trying to fix it. On the other hand playback of audio files is totally dependent on the engine. If the engine doesn't support it, amaroK can't play it."
