    You can get a specialized music player, but it will have far less features than the iPod, especially an iPod Touch, and some of those may be important. A headphone amp in my view is much better, unless you absolutely have to have everything in one small device.

    Thankyou so much for your reply. Yes i quite understand what you are saying about features no the iPod, however, my phone gives me all the features i will ever need. i just want something that plays music, don't really care about apps and things. I know there are some very pricy Hi Fidelity ones, but will they help to reproduce better sound ?

    Cheers Colin

    This is the list I have here now. I have the X3 myself which sounds better than iPod with the *same* tracks, but then it also plays other lossless formats (other than lossy or WAV) too.

    There are the A&K players above the FiiO X3, but the X3 should be good since you can store up to 64 gb on a MicroSD card (I have the Sandisk 64 gb class 10 card), and play any of those right from the menu. BTW, the A&K players are highly regarded, and I think there is a new one on the way that sells for over £2000.
