Cool hi-fi system skin....

hi guys,
i think i've finally come to a design which i can go on and complete.
i know i've been goofing around with many desings lately but this time i think we have got the winner.
personelly i think there r not enough music system skins out there so decided to make one myself...
now im not gonna ask for coders this time as usual...but this time around i need some ideas from all u hardcore wa3 coder out there.

i need some ideas about what all i should integrate in this skin?
should i make the playlist in its 60 CD changer unit or not?
comments and suggestions are welcome...

and lastly, can anyone tell me when the hell will i be given the tag of senior member or something like that....

hehe, believe me, if you want to carry on using the Sony logo, the last thing I would do is ask them if you can, I will 100% guarantee you will get a real nice legal letter from them asking you to cease what you are doing

I'd like to comment about the design, but stereo inspired skins leave me cold.

do u think the skin will be a keeper?
obviously the skin will be smaller than the size in the pic coz thats the wallpaper image
ofcourse there will be a pair of speakers...what do u think??

I'm sure it will fly like shite off a chrome coated shovel when it's released, people like the hifi skin look, personally I don't, but lot's of others do.

I wrote Sony once about the use of their logo, the result is in the links in my signature.

u mean to say Sony just doesn't allow the use of their logo in any kind of artwork....this is very bad news...
but what about the other sony skins on the web....
howcome they are on the web without sony whippin' their ass off?

1. sony people are lazy
2. its hard to take legal action against someone when u dont even know there name
3. all else fails and claim its fan art they would look really bad if they tried messing with it then

It's looking good, but it's a hell of a size, that is going to look massive on a fairly low res screen, say 800x600, looks big on this laptop set at 1024x768

ya mr jones ur right the skin is big looking
but the fact is i started making a wallpaper of the player but when i startted reaching its completion, i kinda liked the design and thought why not make a skin on it.
maybe a larger % of the users use 1024 res screens, atleast i use it.
we'll see for that
thank u for taking interest in the design moderator!

I use 1600x1200, and a skin that takes a quarter of my screenspace is a bit large... :\
But i liked the design though

The speakers are a bit too bright if you ask me, and other than some lighting flaws in the main, it looks good

Hey Amit,
this I think that glowing effect would look good on your skin
Sure, I don't mind coding. Just don't expect it to get done in a hurry give me maybe a couple of weeks.
Also, I was bored, and so re-did part of your sshot

thanx hammerhead for taking interest in the skin
the skin gfx is 95% complete
labelling the buttons and some tweakings are all there is left to do.
heres the screenshot of the system with speakers.
