Does anyone recommend a mp3 music player and/or radio for raspberry pi 3?! VLC and Kodi are disappointing to use. I wish to play music in the background. Kodi is very slow and cannot be minimalized. VLC cannot play videos.

I ordered a Raspberry PI 3 B+ which should arrive in a few days. Even though the specs on the Asus Tinkerboard looks interesting, I am concerned about the over heating and lack of community support. :)
