i got an iaudio x5 60gb for $279 from this place in new york. for what you want i think this is it.
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?
