what are your recommendations.

Sansa Fuze if you don't want to spend too much.

Amp3 if you want the best quality sound.

Yikes, I'd rather buy a decent laptop next year. I'm not that big an audiophile. :P

that's the trouble you get yourself into when you don't specify a budget

If it sounds as good as this little 2gb Clip I have here.. then I second that.

It sounds absurdly good with my ES3X, considering the IEMs cost like 30 times as much as the player. Madness

You're right, but I'm curious when you heard it. CanJam?

I had the opportunity to hear an HM-801 at this summer's New Jersey meet - powering my L3000's, no less plenty of power to drive the leatherheads, with detail and sweetness to spare

this is precisely why I ended up preordering one

Oh you preordered one? Congrats!

5G iPod

Kenwood HDD-based players are also very good.
And ipod 5g just sucks when listening through headphone out. I don't know, maybe switching to a line-out (+amp) and imodding the ipod will help, but you should specify that.

If you don't care about money I give you the final recommend, which are called "four magic": sony d50, iMOD, kenwood d9, B&O 2 as ufo in common. They have the best sound as MP3 player, and their prices are also fantastic haha

AMP3 cheap and excellent
