[Q] Looking for an advanced Music Player


I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum for my question. In this case, please point me to where I should better post it.

I'm currently looking for a new music player. I've been using PowerAMP for quite a while and started to feel pretty unsatisfied, since there is no further development since at least 2 years. In particular I'm missing smart playlists and the ability to properly read multi-tagged genres/artists. Especially the multi-tag genres are a real pain, since I use MusicBee on my Desktop and organized my artists and genres very carefully. It was a shame to see everything completely messed up on my android device.

My requirements are pretty basic (at least in my opinion), and I'd be very grateful, if you guys could point me to any music player that supports them. The player should at least have:

  • 5 Star Song Rating
  • Smart Playlists
  • be Adfree (at least with paid version)

in addition, I'm looking for a player that ...

  • has a clean UI (like Pulsar or PowerAMP) / good UX
  • supports multiple tags in artists / genres
  • has a dedicated library, since the media-browser from android crap

So far I have looked at at least 20 players with not a single one satisfying at least my basic criteria.
Pulsar Music Player: only supports "favorite"-Song Rating, no smart playlists
PlayerPro: Multi-Tag Genres are buggy, the library is pretty buggy (some songs aren't tagged properly), multi-tagged artists get simply cut-off (same with multi-tagged genres)
Neutron Music Player: very, very bad UX; multi-tagged artists/genres don't work; no smart playlists
n7player: only favorite-song rating; no smart playlists (however, I like the UI very much)

I'm kind of desparate. Could you point me to anything?
Every help appreciated; many thanks!
