I've decided that I'm fed up with using a Samsung Galaxy S4 as my main audio source, I'm looking to take the plunge and see about getting a dedicated music player again. However, I'm spoiled a little - the last music player I had was an iRiver iHP-120, which had an amazing feature set, I'd love to be able to replicate as much of it as possible.
So, I'm looking for a portable media player which has, in order of importance:
A nice-sounding output, better than your average iPod
At least 40GB of storage space
The ability to play a number of filetypes - mp3, ogg, flac, wav, aiff are the main formats.
A good battery life (i.e, stonk it for a day's playing and still have half a charge left)
If the iHP-120/140 could do all of the above in 2004, i'm sure there are devices around which must really show it up nowadays. I just can't find any of them(!)
Spec for the iHP-120 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iriver_H100_series
Would love to be able to get all of the above for not more than £150.
What do you guys suggest?
