Every music player is proprietary somewhere be it codec, physical IC, transistor technology, speakers, headphones.

Software is a teeny little bit of the whole thing.

And because some piece of the stack is proprietary means I shouldn't try use non-proprietary software where I can and it makes sense?

Software, while a "teeny little bit", is often the bit I find lacking and needing change.
