Well, I think your better option might be to find another IPod classic
in the second hand market since you are already used to the way they
work. For me, I have chosen the Iriver H10 20GB, and I've had 4 of
them. Each time one breaks, I get another used one. Mostly they have
broken because I have dropped them. I also use an older version of
Rockbox, but it works great for me. I'm not a fan of updating stuff
when the old stuff I'm using works fine. My setup works great.

Hi Everyone.
Now I really am looking for people's advice regarding MP3 players.
I realise that each person will have their own individual view but I'd
be
interested to hear what they are.

The situation is that my Ipod Video 80GB Classic is coming to the end of
it's life.
I like the new Apple Ipod Classic which is 160GB however, neither
Apple's
speech nor Rockbox supports it so it's basically inaccessible and
therefore useless for me as a totally blind person.

Now As I have a lot of music and other Audio stuff I need an MP3 player
with at least 32GB memory.

 I could purchase the new Ipod Touch and use it with Apple Speech?
Or I suppose I could purchase an Ipod with a smaller memory such as
the
Nano and put Rockbox on it.

The disadvantage for me is that I'm not a great fan of ITunes and I've
been
told that if I purchase either the Touch or Nano, then I have to use
ITunes to transfer music.

I do feel that my options are becoming slightly limited now
particularly
if I want an Ipod or MP3 player with at least 32GB memory and new
rather
than Second hand.

So, What are people doing?
Are people still purchassing older devices and using them with Rockbox
or
are people now using new Apple ipods such as the Touch or the Phone
with
Apple's own speech.

Thanks.
 Maurice Press.
