Well technically a Sansa Fuze can play FLAC and you can have unlimited storage with microSDHC cards. You can buy 10 32GB cards and have 320GB of storage in an extremely small package.

I doubt anyone would carry 10 cards with them and I certainly doubt they would try and shove 10 cards in the fuze as well lol.

A good option is to get an ipod classic and rockbox it.

You can always get an ipod video and put a 240gb drive in it.

Wikipedia article on Rockbox

Basically, it's a replacement firmware for your (supported!) device that kets you do some fun stuff such as being able to play different formats & organize your music however you want

The latest iPods (the ones dubbed "Classic") are not supported b/c of various technical reasons

Or you can get an iPod Classic 160GB and convert the FLAC to Apple lossless, no difference in sound quality.

+1. I'd personally think this would be the better option, especially considering the long battery life + high storage capacity of the Classic. Plus, it's just a small step towards getting an LOD & Amp combo going.

This alternative requires the user to be operating in OSX, as Windows doesn't support Apple Lossless(ALAC). But if you own a Mac, using ALAC is mighty helpful. It converts a FLAC-file to ALAC in a matter of seconds, keeps the quality intact and not only that, it also decreases its size to 40-60% of the original size!
ALAC operates on all iPods and iPhones models, so yes, that way would be his first step towards an audiophile addiction.
