Ipod type player for FLAC???

Postby Lantesh on Mon May 05, 2008 5:58 pm

Does anyone know if there is a portable Ipod type player that supports .flac files? I've recently gathered together both my father's CD collection, and my CD collection of "American and British Oldies" music from the 50's-70's. I decided to rip all of them to .flac because I wanted a lossless format. I'd like to put the collection on something portable that I can take in the car, or plug into the home stereo system. Does anyone recommend a good product?

Edit: I did find this link which has good info if anyone else is interested.

Rockbox is awesome. =)
But if you want a player that can play .flac without tampering with anything, I recommend Archos. Abit more costy than the ipod, but they last ALOT longer, alot more robust, and they actually have a sane customer service.

Thanks for the info guys. After checking some things out I'll probably end up getting an Ipod and run that firmware. I'm probably going to hold off for a bit though. I thought prices had come down on these things a bit more then they have.

Go eBay. You'll probably find a pretty sweet price there.
