I really dont want to buy an ipod, theres got to be something better out there. Ive been looking at the Cowon iAdio A2 and Im very impressed. If you have had good luck with a particular device please let me know.

I have an Iaudio U3, beats an ipod hands down imo. great sound quality, easy menu and they advertise the fact that their players work with GNU/Linux. Get a pair of good earbuds like the Sennheiser cx300 with it and you can't go wrong.

iAudio X5 here - love it & it plays lots of formats the iPOD won't look at (ogg & FLAC for example).

I also now run RockBox on it, which works well although it doesn't look so nice. Need a new skin for it I guess.

cowon's a very good product. oustanding sound quality too and for me to use outstanding for a DAP is something in itself ;P
