    What kind of portable audio player do you have?

    This is a continuation of an older thread.

    My MP3 player I've had for years has just broken, and I'm leaning toward getting a Cowan/iAudio.

    I'm just curious, though, as to what the Ubuntu Forums community is currently favoring.

    What's your portable audio player of choice right now? How good is the support in Ubuntu for it?

    A friend has an iAudio T2, it's really nice and sounds great, but I haven't seen any stocked where I live. So instead I picked up a Creative Zen stone which is basically an iPod shuffle minus having to use iTunes. It's very simple, works as a removeable drive, sounds great and is about half the price of a shuffle. Only negative is no ogg support.

    I recently got a Sandisk e280 and loaded the Rockbox firmware because I can't stop faffing. It has some nice extras like games.Still getting to grips with the playlist system though...

    I had an Iaudio m3 and loved it, I killed it accidentally though. The hard drive was still good so I bought an ipod with a broken hard drive on ebay and swapped. I don't like the ipod nearly as much, but it does its job. They both sound great though.

    Oh and I have a sandisk sansa m240 for biking and such. Doesn't sound as good as the m3 or the ipod, but it works and it was cheap ($20 on woot)

    My 4G iPod has broken now so I was tempted by the iAudio 7, but I think I'm going to go with the Sansa e280.

    NEVER type a command you don't understand eg. sudo rm -rf / or something similar

    I have an iRiver H340 that I love. But, IIRC, iRiver isn't making HDD-based players anymore.

    My advice is to head on over to Rockbox and see what players they support. I've been using their open-source replacement firmware on my iRiver for over a year now.

    I've got a Zune. It really is a great player once you get past the MS part. Although it doesn't work in linux yet, I dual boot to sync it. It does work through a VM with windows though. The screen is great 2.1" nice vibrant colors, really durable, great for movies. The WiFi sync is spectacular if you listen to podcasts. Speaking of podcasts, the integration is nice. Both video and audio podcasts are supported, and it automatically lets you pick up where you left off, handy if its a long podcast you don't want to listen to all at once.The UI is good too, but its something you really have to use to see how good it is. Its got FM radio built in too. The WiFi song sending is cool, but not enough people have Zunes yet to make it awesome, but if someone you know does the Zune is great for bus rides/trips. My only real qualm with it is that it can't be used as an external HD, being an MTP device. And no OGG/FLAC . Oh well, it does what I want to the rest of the time.
