While there are several music players available in Windows, it is rare to find a great alternative for iTunes on the Mac. In order to be a good candidate to replace your iTunes, it should do some things better than iTunes, such as being quick, light, and no-nonsense. Enqueue is a free music player for OSX that is up to the task. With its powerful playlist manager, this lightweight app is a great secondary program for playing your local library on your desktop.
While it does not have a music store, or a way to sync to your iOS devices, the one good thing that Enqueue does not have compared to iTunes is bloat. In addition, it supports several audio files that iTunes does not like such as FLAC and OGG. The sleek interface also includes an equalizer, library views, scrobbling with Last.fm, and a data bar graph of your top artists and songs.
So if you need a complete audio player without the excessiveness of iTunes, then this app is a nice companion for your desktop.
Update: The app is no longer free.
