I'm using class 4 Sandisk cards (still audible noise) and class 10 64 GB SDXC cards. The SDXC cards are even louder lol. I agree with you on them not releasing products like this anymore. What they really need to focus on is testing these players at low volume levels. Even if that means volume levels that they consider extremely low volume listening. That way you can root-out these issues before it hits the market. Better to not use people as guinea pigs IMO.
