"Easy to Skin. Functionally needs work"

October 29, 2006  |  By SirSmiley

 |  Version: Xion Audio Player 1.0 build 56


Agree that it deserves a 3.5.

Simple to skin. Clear, crisp sound. Easy to navigate except for (see cons).

Doesn't skip for me on XP Sp2.


Needs improvement on the playlist/library features.

"Great player but needs major improvements"

October 23, 2006  |  By megabob6666

 |  Version: Xion Audio Player 1.0 build 56


The player capabilities as far as crispness, presence, and volume were fantastic. Great skin support. Visually and phonically, this is a great player, but unfortunately, there are problems with it that render it useless. Xion has the potential to be the best media player out there if the bugs can be worked out without sacrificing sound quality.


Primarily, the player skips when playing a track, and that's nearly every track it plays. I used my main player (XMPlay) on the same tracks to be sure it was the Xion player and not some other problem, and there were no skips with the XMPlay, indicating that the problem is with Xion. The other problem is with the playlist. The playlist is not integrated with the player at all, and adding to and clearing the playlist is a royal PITA. Hopefully, the author(s) will correct these problems and put Xion at the top of the media player pack.

"Lovely, but can be improved."

August 27, 2006  |  By soft_flame

 |  Version: Xion Audio Player 1.0 build 56


It's now free. // Here's the Download page: xion.r2.com.au/index.php?page=download // I personally like it because it combines style and functionality well enough. // [1] Xion's light. Even with great eyecandy, it loads fast. The default skinpack is sweet enough. [2] Xion has Hot Keys. [3] Simple to use (like duck to the water) [4] Able to control the volume with the scroll wheel. [5] Able to utilise the common playlist format (*.wpl) Winamp playlist easily without any hassle


* Despite the flaws, it DID knock my socks off. I'd say it's more of a 3.5 than a solid 3 stars. // [1] Dragging songs by the load to the playlist is the biggest curse. It crashes most of the time.

If you're patient, you'd drag the songs in batches, bit by bit. Definitely a pet peeve for people who own a massive collection of media files. [2] It tends to crash when handling operations with other softwares. Can't pinpoint why exactly. [3] Not much skin available because of the limited amount of Xion users.
