Being Portable, Xion doesn't require installation and can be run from a USB device. Plus it doesn't change any file association nor does it perform any operation outside the folder you unzip it to. Simply load your favorite music into it and click on the "Play" button.
Xion supports a wide array of audio formats, including streaming radio from the Internet and playlists. It doesn't support video though, and playlists must be managed on a separate window with the help of a special add-on that's already included in the program. Xion also includes a 10-band equalizer with a bunch of presets and the always-useful global hotkeys, with which you can control the program from any app with a simple keyboard shortcut.
But if there's something that makes Xion stand out it's its native support for skins. According to the developer, skins are really easy to create – no coding required – and this may be the reason why there are almost 500 of them to choose from on the program's website. You can have a new player every day during a whole year!
Xion is a light, portable audio player with support for all popular formats, a 10-band equalizer, global hotkeys and an incredibly high level of customization.
Xion Portable supports the following formats
AIFF, ASF, FLAC, MID, MP3, ogg, WAV, WMA, M3U, PLS, WPL
