Volume control

I've received a lot of requests for a volume control. The support in code has been there for a long time, but I have been holding off for various reasons. Lately I've been playing with the UI and can't find a good place to put a volume control slider. Here's the best I've come up with:

I actually think this looks like crap- it's too cluttered, and there is no room for icons next to the slider so its purpose is unclear.

I've also tried using a circular slider, but the problem with those is that you can't tell when you are at 100%, and it's difficult to gauge their setting with a quick look.

Does anyone have any ideas or UI mockups?

Coincidentally this past week and weekend had me using Play more than all the past added up. I found myself wishing for a volume controller (as well as a Synergy/Tunebar type companion app!). The second view looks good.

And with icons like this? (Just as an example, the icons are drawn a little primitively.)
