XMPlay

[Windows only] XMPlay is an lightweight (304 kb) portable audio player, supporting the OGG / MP3 / MP2 / MP1 / WMA / WAV / CDA / MO3 / IT / XM / S3M / MTM / MOD / UMX audio formats, and PLS / M3U / ASX / WAX playlists. A load more formats are also supported via plugins. Also, it supports skins, which you can get from here.

I've been playing with XMPlay for a couple of hours and so far I can tell you it's an amazing music application. To add some music, simply drag the folders into it. You can assign global shortcuts so you can change the current playing track / volume using the keyboard, etc. and it also comes with a built-in DSP which sounds great.

Aother great thing about XMPlay it's the plugins, for instance there are plugins which allow you to play files directly from 7 zip, rar, zip, etc archives, without extracting them. You can find the whole list of plugins, here.

Just try it out and you'll se how great this music player really is ;)
