New "Xion" Audio Player-Great Sounding Music

Xion Audio Player is an ultra light, easily skinnable, out of this world Audio Player and is completely free.Xion Audio Player features a new standard in skin support. Baffled by script syntax? Pulling your hair out over slicing up skin elements? Crying over spilt milk?

Xion's approach to skinning will remove all scripting and slicing requirements that other skin systems have placed on users. Xion Audio Player will directly read a .PSD file and using layer names, instantly bring your skin to life.

While installing there will be an option to enable automatic checks for new builds.When the player first start it definitely has a unique interface that can also be minimized.One of the boasted features is the ability to skin the player with over 540 skins at the time of this writing. Just go to their site to browse the various skins and click one to download and install.As soon as it installs, the player opens with the new skin.

Xion supports lots of formats like,
  • Advanced Audio Coding (.Aac)
  • Dolby Digital AC-3 (.Ac3)

It officially supports Windows 2000-Vista 32 and 64bit versions and I had no trouble using it with Windows 7. If you are looking for a new and fun to use audio player on your PC then check out Xion Audio Player.

Re: New "Xion" Audio Player-Great Sounding Music

Thanks for the article, was wondering what music player you are using. Xion is great, I did notice a huge difference. But I would like a more customizable software, tried using Foobar. Something lightweight aswel.
