... or hearing it at least. I think.

Is it just me or does compression due to anti-shock memory degrade sound quality? I seem to notice it in my Pana 570.

And, as I may be in the market for another portable, this begs the question: Do other "higher-end" players like Sony's ej1000 and 2000 and Pana's 790 and 800 offer a non-compressed option, as does the 570?

Your 570 should have a ten second un-compressed anti-skip thingy. Don't remember how to get to it. And thats the only one I know of.

Yes, it does, and that's one of the options I so like about this unit. I'm wondering if other, newer models offer this feature as well. But I know that mass-market listeners could probably care less if their sound is compressed, and it may not even be a choice anymore...

My Sony D-EJ725 has this choice, as does my D-CJ01 mp3 CD player. AFAIK the whole EJ line with numbers ending in x25 has that option.
