It also seems that the Iaudio supports this natively while the Ipod codec is in software. Does this affect performance? Is one type of player preferable to the other for any sound quality reason? Or, for that matter, any other? Thanks for any suggestions/leads.

I have been told that the audio quality of the IAudio was a lot better
than that of the IPod. That being said, I didn't do any direct comparison.

(PS, if you are worried about quality, don't forget for a good set of
hearphones)

I've got an IAduio X5 and I'm really satisfied with it.
