I thought I'd start a seperate thread to get some feedback on a portable FLAC player so I can take AA with me each day on a rather long fucking journey. Sandisk-sansa-fuzefinally-portable-flac is one of the first I've come across that people are talking about. No matter how hard I try I find that portable players are crap when it comes to playing metal. They just don't cover the right levels. Now considering technology and all, my Uni course is digital animation, so I went out and bought a Edirol Roland R-09HR Recorder to record sounds for animation tracks, record lectures, and when I'm not using it. My father can use it for his gigs, rehersals, etc. Pity I cannot combine the two items honestly, you see I've been spoiled with a sound engineer father, using his speakers when no one is in there. Nothing better than listening to the Fate of Norns DVD via 2400 watts of studio speakers. Yet I settle for the two monitor ones as a last resort. Gotta build a surround sound system out of these babies one day. Anyways, it's nearly 7am again and would love some ideas on obtaining a really awesome FLAC player so I can endure my journey in lossless quality AA to pass the time as I practice drawing on the bus and train.
