Audiophile/best sounding mp3 players out to date...post here!!!!

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 

What's the best sounding mp3 players you know of. I have a Samsung P3 which has an impressive DSN 3.0 engine in it. I'm running out of music space and am thinking about getting a Zune HD. BUT, I do not know about the sound quality. That's what I mostly care about.

Hifiman 801 and soon to be out 602 for absolute best sound quality. Also has removable storage so you have 'unlimited' storage space.

I looked at a Zune HD yesterday at BB. Sound quality was very good through the rather average headphones they had laying about. Thinking about getting one myself, or a 4G iTouch in a couple months.

Without a doubt, the HM-801. 

 

But, you said .mp3 players, and the best ones are DAP's that play lossless.

I've owned Sony X and S:flo2, which are good (the SF2 Line out is excellent), but I love the ZuneHD SQ, and the Touch 3G via line out is excellent as well.

 

Am interested in the HD 602, but probably might not buy one.

wow....the HM looks like some serious business...but a little out of this 16 yr olds price range. If the HM 602's will go for 300 then woot!!!

Doesn't the iRiver+D10 combo go here anymore? Or iMod+Vcap+amp?

Kenwood HDD DAP:s. In my case a HD20GA7. Very nice almost analogue sound. My Cowon S9 sounds very digital compared to it.
