MP3 Player? Dont know where else to post

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Cant post in wanted thread, and I cant find a forum category for MP3 players.
Basically I am looking for a new one, My old(but trusty) Toshiba Gigabeat is starting to go after 6 years? And their lack of 64bit OS support makes putting music on it a pain. So any advice on a good quality (audio quality < space) mp3 player would help alot. OR if anyone has one they are looking to sell let me know.

I was looking at a Zune, but I am not a fan of mircosoft..... yet a ipod seems to be no better, I despise iTunes. Are those the only decent quality MP3 players around now days?

The wanted section can be found here. And I'd say it'd all depend on how much you want it to do. We bought our kids all lil MP3 players off amazon for 20$ for Xmas. They hold up to their abuse so far and play the songs. However if you want more functionality (ie a screen, or SD card expandability) TONS can be found in all different price ranges. I have a decent creative with a crystal clear LCD screen and plays movies, FM radio etc, for 60 bucks.

BUT, one of my buddies bought one of

, and it seems pretty sweet for price as well.

I strongly Recommend cowon products. I have a d2+ cant beat the sound quality or battery life only have to charge my d2 once every 2 weeks with a few hours of use each day. It also supports flac if you need it.

Well I just discovered Rockbox. Which literally saved my Gigabeat... Maybe it will keep it going for a few more months. Thank you for the advice, I didn't even know that brand existed. Once I have the money for something like that I will definitely take a look at them.

Yes. I love my s9 but I need better headphones to get the most out of my flac collection.
