In need for a new portable high-quality media-player.
So there it is.
I don't have a smartphone.
My pretty old Ipod Classic 160gb broke down recently. Keeps pausing songs randomly and it doesn't seem to be fixable.
I also have been thinking about buying a new player all the time and I have some money to burn at the moment.
So I searched some on this and other forums but opinions differ so much that I just decided to create an own thread, therefore my excuses for any possible dupes...
So I am mainly looking for the following:
- Flac player
- good capacity (at least 64gb with or without SD card).
- Durable battery life (and charge time)
- Option for TV connect possibilty: I would also like to watch movies on it, probably avi but HD would be nice bonus. It should also have an tv connect possibility, I am often the guy who provides the movie when watching at a friends place and that would be a lot more handy then bringing my laptop all the time..
- Bonuses like wifi and cool features like BBE and jet-effect, lyric databases and stuff are cool. I don't have a smartphone and I don't have wifi-access at my house though..
So far I have narrowed it down to the following players, they are all cowon but I haven't quit explored any other brands yet.
Pro's: Great screen, great video quality, HDMI tv connect possibility, wifi-possibility, andoid OS
Cons: Little playback time, 32gb flash memory so i have to buy an SD card with it.
Pro's: Great capacity (160gb), great playback time.
Con's: Resistive touchscreen, tv-connect is there but it's AV-out don't know if people will still have that on their tv's soon..?
Pro's: Overally great. Good screen, good playback
Con's: Same tv-connect as the X7.
So any help on choosing out of the above or offering a good alternative would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advanced,
