I think the best value for the audio quality is the Sandisk Sansa Clip Zip.

Get the 4GB version then add 16GB or 32GB Micro-SD memory card

Total price would be $50-$60.

 

You can even RockBox the Clip Zip to add more features.

You can search mp3 players with MAX9722/9723 amplifier.

Cube C30/C60, Nationite Nanite N2, Hisoundaudio ROCOO-A.

I don't know if they're still in production, but according to the specs the first three have 130mw output.

When I first got my Clip Zip, I tried pairing it with my Fiio E6.

Figured out it really was just easier to plug headphones directly into the Clip Zip.

If you get low impedance headphones, like under 32-Ohm, makes it easier to not have to use an add-on amp.

 

I would suggest getting the Clip Zip 4GB, get a 16GB or 32GB Micro-SD memory card, "Rockbox" the Clip Zip, and get low impedance headphones to plug into it.

Rockbox is a third party firmware for portable audio players that adds more features, then the stock factory firmware.
