    Needing a new portable source.

    used ipod 120GB can be had for about $110-140 + $65 for a Fiio E11 or maybe even less for a CMOY and the total would anywhere form $150-200, doesn't sound too bad... although i guess it is more than the zen option.

    the J3 is very nice but also defintiely out of the OP's budget.

    Fix up Classic or start over?

    well if you get an LOD, you will always have a fixed volume. another option, a better one,imo, could be to get an LOD and an amp

    Post your computer specs!~

    yeah. throw the page file onto a HDD that you use for data or RAM disk if you feel like it. personally, i see no difference in having my page file on ram disk versus hdd, and definitely no to the defrag - actuially i think you are not supposed to, more than them not needing it, i think i've read...

    $5000????? really? how? i might be off on my prices a bit, but it just doesn't seem to add up. and no, this is not meant to be taken as me doubting you, i'm just surprised.  but 15gb of ram? even with 8gb as ramdsik, do you really need that much? Quote:

    Frustrated... Ipod... RockBox... FLAC files

    of course i know they're not the same thing. but... the J3 really has a great HO. but hey if you say it matters that much, then i guess you gotta get lineout. go ahead and get the sansa fuze. sounds like it'll do everything you need. lineout and FLAC support with rockbox.
