Looking for a high capacity (70+ gb) portable audiophile grade music player

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I cannot seem to find anything greater than 32 gb for the most part as the players tend to function off SD cards and are limited to that capacity. 

 

Even a 64 gb player will not be enough for me. I already currently have 68 gb of music and I expand by about 1 gb a month at the very least. 

 

Does an audiophile grade player exist that is high capacity?

There are many ipod versions you can have that offer more memory from 60+ gb needed for your use

 

1. New Ipod classic 7g - 160gb

2. Old Ipod classic 5.5g + buying a high hdd/ssd - 200gb

3. Old/new ipod classics with built in 200gb+ that can be bought off ebay (from china)

 

I SUGGEST RESEARCHING ABOUT THESE BEFORE YOU BUY!

 

New AK100 seems to have 96gb (with added memory from 2 micro sd slots combined with internal)

The AK100 actually seems like a perfect match. But is it really going to retail at 700 dollars?

 

That's a tad out of my price range.

Old Ipod modded with a CF card of HDD would be best. There are heaps of upgrade paths available as well. If "stock" Ipod 5.5 is not good enough you can use a LOD and external DAC/AMP which should take the sound even further up on the Audiophil scale.

 

Ps I personally dislike Apple products but they seem the only ones that have large capacity available, still you will need a CF card mod to make the most of it.

A used Microsoft Zune has the sound and can have the capacity depending on model. However, they do require Windows Media to move files and don't work with Flac files.
