This is an excellent, lean and clean player that echoes long-lost simplicity of Winamp from 10 years ago. It has some fantastic skins, but some of them are also pretty clunky, so it takes some trial and error to find the best ones. Also, my primary beef is that many of the skins don't effect all modules, in particular the playlist. Many of the skins are very creative and look really hot in compact mode. The equalizer could use more bands, but it can be refreshing compared to the 18 bands in AIMP, which I sometimes find to be a bit much for every-day use. The sound is crisp, and the interface is simple and intuitive with the right skin. I highly recommend this player. Try it, it might become your favorite.

Um dos melhores. O Melhor sem dúvida é o JETAUDIO. O que mais impressionou neste mediaplayer foi a sonoridade em auto fidelidade

I've been using Xion for a long time now. I originally downloaded it just so I could make skins for it, but it became a handy little player to use. It's streams radio perfectly.

Now with 125, I can do so much more. This is a wonderful media player. Will stick with it. :)

One star, based purely on two things - one, it's shaped like a female sanitary napkin and two, I can't give zero stars. Avoid.

GhoS you said "I can't load my media library easily and shuffle the list."

In what format is your media library? Is it just some files on disk? If so you can just drag and drop the folder straight onto Xion and it will load it into the playlist, which you can then shuffle. If not, how did you create the media library, what format is it in?

P.S. I can't figure out how to get in contact with people, only by posting a rating in the hope that they'll read it again, anyone have any tips?

I've tried this player a couple of times due to the high praise it gets and each time I'm disappointed. It has no features (at least nothing that works easy for me). I can't load my media library easily and shuffle the list. Maybe I'm not that bright, but I really couldn't figure this player out very well.
I don't understand the hype when there are a lot of other choices that do more, are easy to follow and are still free - Winamp for one.

downloaded it, tried it on a few tunes and then uninstalled it.
it plays ok but after the crash i'm not carrying a collection of media players anymoew.
i use media monkey, with my DSP's and GForce for my library and settled on
AIMP2 on my "tune tester"
gave it a three for effort

Based on the "wunnerful accolades", I downloaded this and tried it and for the life of me, I can't see what all the fuss is about.

LOTS of hype.

Not much substance.

It's an OK player, competent enough in its own limited way.

And that's the problem - it's limited.

No ASIO support despite claims that it's there. No WASAPI support. A *very* bare-bones set of configuration options.

NOTHING distinguishes this player from the various others out there.

You like this player? Fine. It's likeable. is it the second coming? Get a life; XMPlay, Foobar and Winamps (even VUPlayer) have it beat stone cold hands down.

THREE stars for a competent enough, albeit decidedly lacklustre effort.

If my G-force visualization plug-in ran on Xiion, I'd give it a five. As it is, it sounds great, and that's at least 80 percent of what a player should do!

VUPlayer(add also folder instead of only playlists and digital and analogue vu meters!) and 1by1 (only mp3, but a folder three!) allready stole my heart, but this app looks nice and skinnable feature simpy rocks!

well well, i use foobar, yes. but for fun and visuality i install other players for testing purposals. and this one rocked me. nice, smart, a lot of formats included - would say all i use - and a skinable ui.

and to the cpu usage... depoending on the chosen skin, the player runs from 0-2% usage with 1gb ram and p4 3ghz - most times it hangs around the 1% border with some rare 2% peaks...

the playlist is improvable and the only reason for not giving it a 5.

>>.. - 92% CPU usage"

You'd better get your computer checked buddy. I downloaded just through curiosity to see what pc usage I get and it didn't go above 2%. I tested on a 2.4 G pc with 1 g ram, it didnt even stutter. Sure I get 0% on foobar, yes 0. But 2% is ok.
