I know its not an archos, and hence theres no rockbox (sniffle), but since
my FM started playing up, I looked into non-archos alternatives, and since
i listen to it mostly in my car, I found the Denison DH-100 unit.

Basically its a head unit with a removable (portable) mp3 player, you just
flip up the top and plug the portable in.
