Want to pair off something with a Practical Devices XM5, but would like to keep it as pocket-portable as possible. What are the options for a decent SQ? iPod nano 3rd gen? Fuze? GoGear Ariaz? Something by Samsung? Expandable memory would be ideal. Please no responses with that credit card player thing. Ability to play flac would also be a bonus.

S:Flo 2 (play FLAC) has dedicated line-out to pair with external AMPs and it has expandable memory. The Sony X1060(no FLAC) offer very detailed sound through HP jack but it has line-out funtion through media port and ALO sell dock cables for Sony walkmen.

Not sure that S:Flo 2 would be something that you could call "thinnest".
 
If you do not leave in EU, you might check the Sony ones, I had a S755 and it was quite good. Only problem was volume cap which was a pain for me.
 
Else, the Sansa Clip as suggested is still a good and cheap choice apparently (even if I never had one).
 
You might also look at the new Cowon C2 which is tiny and offers a MicroSD slot. But it's not as small as an ipod nano 3rd.

The Clip+ would have been a good option if it didn't mean removing the clip. I've been trying to find a good config with my existing Clip+ but it's frustratingly difficult to position. At this stage the Fuze is probably the most realistic option given that it also has a microsd slot, but still open to suggestions.

Anyone have any impressions for Archos 2 Vision? A little thicker than a Fuze, but laden with features and quite affordable.
