MOC (Music on Console) is my favourite command line player. It comes with a
terminal ncurses GUI as well, supports ALSA, OSS, Jack and maybe more, plays
all common audio formats, uses libsamplerate to convert samplerates with high
quality and so on.

The Debian package is called "moc", with /usr/bin/mocp as the binary to not
conflict with moc from Qt.
