i still think winamp owns itunes, its 1/10 the size, and it plays flacs natively.
YMMV

Yup, WinAmp is still in Alpha release for the Mac the the only other options are:

http://sbooth.org/Play/ - Play
http://www.videolan.org - VLC
http://getsongbird.com/ - Songbird


Am I missing anything?  I'd love to know other options if they're available

Cog is grrrrreat!  Although I never do playlists or libraries-- just drag-n-drop.  So I can't vouch for it's efficacy and functionality for those sorts of features.

I've been using Foobar and have on occasion wiped out playlists by double clicking on a .flac file in "exploder"  :P  I prolly just need to disassociate .flac from any application to prevent that, but does Cog run any risk of this?  Getting a playlist all set up is kinda time consuming and I'd like to maybe find an alternative that's a little more secure from automatic wipeouts.

+t for the links.

I'll get back to you about your Cog question if I get my hands on a Mac soon.  Per your FB2K issue... If you enable 'Folder Context Menus' under 'File > Preferences > File Types' you can right-click on a folder w/ *.flacs or on a *.flac itself and select "Play in Foobar2000" or "Enqueue in Foobar2000."  Selecting Play will wipe out your playlist and load the single track; selecting Enqueue will add the *.flac file(s) to the bottom of the current playlist, in which case you could manually navigate to the track and play it from within Foobar2000, thus keeping your playlist loaded (you'd have to delete the track you added after playing it if you don't want it in the playlist, though).  I always navigate to a show's folder and right-click it into FB2K, enqueueing when I want multiple shows available.  This feature might help prevent wiping out your playlist.
