    I am a musician, an audiophile, and have a crazy-big collection (30,000 + tracks). The music is always on in my life. I am tied in with Pandora and many streaming apps, radio, and what's new and trending, to classical.

    So here's what I use: iTunes. Really.

    I've been full circle on other players a few times, and return to iTunes.
    I also use iTunes to encode from CDs, at no less than 192 Kbps MP3 .

    My iPod.

    My A/V Receiver has an iPod interface, which provides Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound music playing at home.

    I'm also a musician with massive collection. For streaming I bounce back and forth with Google Listen and Spotify.
    I'm still undecided as for a player for my stored tracks. I like having eq options etc...

    I use Metro MediaMonkey. It works as a DLNA (UPnP) client, as well.

    Spotify (desktop) + Spotlite (Metro, until an official app appears) for me.

    I've recently picked up a Google Play music subscription. Its fantastic, but the big drawback is no dedicated local app to browse and manage your library on a windows setup. I'll be looking to switch to Xbox music pass next month, which offers a similar experiences across all platforms, unlike Google Play if your looking for offline playback support that is. A dedicated app is key on windows.

    I use iTunes, Deezer, Spotify, Pandora and Xbox Music. I may soon use Deezer alone if my plans materialize.

    Spotify for streaming, then windows media player for stored music, but most of mine at home goes through local network to my Yamaha amp so whatever that uses.
