Anyone have any good suggestions for Mp3 player for under £100 ?


I think I will change onto something DAC when I head back to Hong Kong this xmas.  


I lost my good old reliable Telecast T51

so I will need a replacement for it,


atm on my list are 


 


Sansa Clip Zip 4gb £25.61 + 32gb Micro SD Card £13.67 = 36gb for Just under £40


Sansa Clip +   4gb £22 Manufacturer refurbished.


 


Is there any other choices out there ? Apart from those two ? I won't mind if it is 2nd Hand.


And what are the main difference for them ?


I am still quite confusing on the Rockbox thing, so what does it actually do ?


My music collection are made up of APE/FLAC/WAV, so do I need to rockbox the Clip in order to support those formats ?


 


And I will be using my Vsonic Gr07


 


Thanks,


Anderson

You may also consider Colorfly C3 for that price.

Thanks, I think they are much cheaper and much easier access to when I head back to HK this xmas.
Just wandering how are the UI on the C3 ? And will it Pair with GR07 ?


The user interface is very easy to use, there's not much you can do wrong, smooth, fast, remembering the player is very simplified and only plays music, but it's the quality of the music that matters and C3 gives that in flocks for the price. I own a Clip+ and it's quite a noticable upgrade over the Sansa's. I also have a pair of GR07 MK2 and the pairing is great. If you have time read through the thread there's many of us agree GR07 creates excellent synergy with C3.

WOW the C3 with 4gb are only £70 in Hong Kong and the 8gb ver. are only £80.
Looks like I will be heading for that one.

We were just talking about the CK4 here, I'm about to buy one. :D It would be considered an upgrade over the C3 again.
