Oops, I should have looked at your e-mailaddres (jup '.de' you're real
german :P ). You have just a very dutch name, which can of course be
german aswell.

I just checked it and.. its about 0,25 of a second. Ok, not gapless
but pretty close. Anyway it wouldn't be annoying in a recorded concert
or something.

I just mumbled a few models, I personally don't like ipod either.

Ok I wast just being a bit too positive about the H320. But I choose
this one because of the future rockbox support, good sound quality and
equalizer (which I think you forgot to mention ;) ) USB on the go and
pretty good battery capacity.

There is only one downside about it, the boot time....
But if you turn of ID3 tags (which you said you would probably not
use) it's not that long anymore (about 9-10 secs just counted).

There's also a lot to customize (it will only void your warranty,
which rockbox in some cases does aswell) e.g. own skins on the outside
and grafics
