So I love my 2005 ipod 5G sound (wolfson chip), and I've gotten the 4g nano and the Fuze, and the sound quality ain't going to cut it for me. Nothing is wrong with the Fuze's SQ, except that it's not my ipod 5G. I just think that highly of the 5g sound. Unfortunately, I'd like a smaller player (not a screenless shuffle, though). Any suggestions?

Should I go with Sony players first or Cowon players? Zunes?

Cowon D2 4GB-16GB (Wolfson) - should be cheap nowadays
Teclast players (Rockchip/Wolfson)
RAmos players (Rockchip/Wolfson)
Sony - if you like your sound enhancements, personally I don't like them because they make everything sound too unnatural.
Zunes - I'm Australian, but they do look pretty cool...so nothing much to be said here.

... if you can deal with it's subpar navigation and handling. Better take the predecessor (Zen)
