I'm looking for an (preferably free) audio player on OS X that supports gapless playback. It doesn't need to be fancy, I don't need any bells and whistles. I just want gapless playback. Unfortunately VLC doesn't support this, and though I've tried about half a dozen other players, none of them seem to implement this, or if they do I don't know how to enable it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I'd also like to avoid iTunes if at all possible since I organize my music by folder and the ID3 tags aren't necessarily up-to-date... and I generally hate iTunes.

Vox | Cog

Both do gapless, Vox being the one I use.
