I've been a cowon fangirl for years and was toying with upgrading from the s9 to the z2. In the meantime, I stumbled upon the sansa clip zip and WOW! Rockboxed it and I'm pretty impressed with the sound but the size of that screen is gonna send me to an early grave.
Does a player exist with the sound quality of cowon and sansa that has some substantial playlist capabilities and doesnt cost more than the z2? Also, are sony and cowon the only great sounding players with android? (Sony is out because of the volume cap.)
