FLAC Player - What are my options?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
besides a cowon iaudio x5 and a rock boxed ipod 5.5, what are my options for a large capacity (HDD) player that can handle flac files?

since i keep most of my songs on my computer as flacs, its a bit of a pain to change them back into mp3s just to load it onto my player.

preferences would be swappable battery and a very clean signal cause my um2s are soooo sensitive. prefer to skip the portable amp.

umz, yeah. guess that's it.

Just use Foobar and do a batch convert of your entire collection. Leave it overnight. Not a pain at all.

Seems like good financial solution to me. Or dbPowerAmp does a nice batch convert too.

hardly considered a high-capacity player.

I second this. It's easy to convert FLAC to mp3 using foobar, especially overnight.

I don't think Rockbox is setup for the new iPod Classics yet.

If the 2G Nano is any indication, Rockbox will not be making its way to the Classic.

The Pacemaker is 120gigs. A bit of a bank-breaker, though.

Some of the newest Chinese players support FLAC. Here sells a bunch of them.

Ooops re-read original post: these are all flash based.

I'm actually converting my FLAC files to Apple Lossless. I'm using Max on the Mac, and I find that converting FLAC to ALAC (one lossless format to another) is much faster than encoding to MP3. I then transfer the ALAC to my 160GB iPod Classic.

whoa, those look NICE. and they play flacs.
does anybody have any experience with them? i've seen some nice chinese stuff before, but most of that i've seen are cheap knockoffs and poor imitations.
