My beloved, 8 year old Zune 120 is wobbling on it's last legs and I don't think it's long for this world. It's been a great companion for my portable music all these years but I think the time to look elsewhere is coming.
I'm looking for a new DAP to replace it, and would greatly prefer not to get an iPod, since I am not an Apple fan. My music collection is mostly either MP3 320 or FLAC, so large storage size would be nice, and playlist support is a must since I would be often using it in my car through the stereo's aux in. I could use my LG G2 which sounds very good, but I would prefer to have a dedicated player since the G2 has limited space and I would like to preserve it's battery for long trips. Headphone-wise I'd primarily be using it with Cosmic Ears HY3, Vsonic GR06, and very rarely with my Mad Dogs. I do have a Fiio E17 for high impedance cans so that's not that big of an issue, tho the ability to drive inefficient headphones without a separate amp would be pretty cool. Money is not toooo much of an issue, but spending more than $300-400 would be hard to swallow.
So give me your suggestions Head-Fi! I know virtually nothing about the current slate of DAPs so any advice or tips would be awesome!
