What is Xion Audio Player?
Xion Audio Player is an ultra light and easily skinnable Audio Player.
Xion Audio Player features a new standard in skin support. Baffled by script syntax? Pulling your hair out over slicing up skin elements? Finding skinning just way too complicated?
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.
Xion Audio Player also supports direct loading from Zip files which allow you to package several .PSD files in the one package. This has the added benefit of being compressed and therefore consumes less disk space.
Xion Audio Player is ultra light and only consumes minimal amounts of RAM and CPU.

Yes you are right -> English is not my nature language = Me talk bad English
Looks cool FunkY i wish it didn't then i could avoid it, but the eye candy gets to me instead of the actual program, but i will download as i know i will and give it a try out, between you Paf and Solin im definately in the market for an new external disk
Ok just a warning to people that try this out turn down your speakers as the first run is a bit of a shocker, and im awake now

Just for people who have never used Xion, I used to use it when AIMP's site was down for a long time a while back.
It's lightweight, it's friendly, and has a LOT of skins for it. And when I mean lightweight, I mean it. I have used a clear skin, and it dropped the usage to about 900kb. With EQ set to a custom setting and to actually have a high bitrate song playing on it... I was impressed.
I switched back to AIMP2, though Xion can also handle my entire music library without failure. So if you need something lightweight and yet handles like AIMP2 does? Xion. Simply Xion.

Thanks for the reply's JayCub and hellnoire
I have tried Xion long time ago and i remember that it was pretty good But after i found foobar2000, course has been same couple of years already!
I'm debating about going back to Xion, and Foobar... didn't like it much myself.
Xion has easier time in theming then AIMP2, hence why I'd do it. But that's my logic.
