Subject: So What Am I Looking For?

So What Am I Looking For?

I know a "what's the best player" question has already been asked, but my
issue is, I know what I need in my player, I just don't know what player to
get.

First off, I'm very behind-times on these, so I guess I could start by
saying it would have to be available in the USA, but my guess is that's a
given and pretty much all the players are, so ignore that. :D

Second, I have a lot of music. Only about 5% are officially released. I
want to get as much as possible to all of it onto my player. But the less I
get on it as MP3, the better, because with my foray into live recordings,
and .wav, .flac, .shn, etc, I've discovered that MP3 really doesn't sound
that good. My hope is to get as much of the music as possible on
as .flac files.

My official releases alone run almost over 1,000 songs. Then I've probably
got more than 15,000 songs unofficially released, including live recordings,
studio sessions, etc.

I need a player big enough to fit all of that. Then, of course, videos,
audiobooks, etc. And I would like good, high-quality recording, too.

Of course, a version of RockBox should be available for it.

As far as battery life, as long as a charge can give me, with RockBox, long
enough to listen on a, say, 4-hour car-ride, I can deal with the decreased
battery-life.

Recording should be good, as well.

And finally, my budget should probably be bigger, but considering current
financial issues, I can only shell out so much. I've figured I'm gonna end
up spending over $300, but the lower, the better.

It's alot, but I need a player for all this. So, barring the fact that I may
be asking some stupid questions here (heh... sorry), any suggestions?
