Need a music player that won't make me tear my hair out.

Are there any music programs for Android that can also sync with my desktop that make listening to music and managing my library more of a pleasure and less of a frustrating chore? I've tried doubleTwist, Spotify, Winamp and Windows Music Player, all of which have major drawbacks and seem worse than iTunes, which also sucked, but not as bad as the Android ones do.

I have searched previous threads but hoping maybe there is an update:
It just seems incredible to me that in 2012 there isn't a simple, clean program where I can manage my mp3 library on my desktop (and also listen to music easily from there) and then quickly and easily transport that same library to my Android phone. I think doubleTwist has been the best but I hate how long it takes to sync even 1 album, the songs routinely show up on my phone out of order, the cover art gets screwed up and songs often fail to load altogether, as well as lacking playlist and EQ support. I didn't think iTunes for the PC was particularly good, but it seems better than all these wannabe Android alternatives.
Am I overlooking a program that has what I want? Again, nothing fancy, just a desktop management program that works for my home computer and syncs (more or less) flawlessly to my Android phone. Thanks!
