Q701 for 150 euros over at French retailer Materiel.net (they mostly sell computer stuff, but are very reliable)   http://www.materiel.net/casque-audiophile/akg-q701-blanc-62743.html
Don't be ridiculous.A lot of popular "sedentary" DAC/amps usually recommended here can be had for $400 or less : ODAC/O2, the cheaper Schit stuff, the Yulong, Audio-GD and Matrix series, the list goes on and on.You only need to skim this very thread to get pages of recommendations.
That'd depend on what you want and need.
Rockbox isn't hard to install if you follow the instructions, just make sure to have a firmware update at hand (from the sansa website), as you'll likely be asked for it. I'm not sure I've noticed much of a sonic improvement with Rockbox (my memory of sounds isn't very good), but there's a lot to be gained by it nonetheless : better battery use, quick database access, sophisticated EQ, crossfeed, and probably a bunch of other nifty features I'm forgetting.

What can I say ? It's possible that some batches or series have more problems than others, and that manufacturing has gone down hill since you fortunate clip owners have had them. Both of my clips were black, 8 gb players bought from Amazon.fr. I can't check the serial numbers, but that might have been insightful. Lastly, yes the 8gb player is 44 euros as I write. I'm not surprised they're cheaper in the US, as that is almost always the case. Sadly, I think amazon.com...
It's called objective tinnitus, you'll find plenty of information on Google or elsewhere. My own reading was done in French, might not be of much use to you.
