I hadn't looked into the Sony A15/A17 and generally avoid Sony products, but they do seem like nice players. However the A15 is $250 and the A17 is $300, putting them way outside the M2 niche. ...

Rockbox runs on the zip and has a good equalizer. It should also do a good job supporting a 64gb card. The x9 has an obnoxious file quantity limit.

I think the Sansa M250 is still available, or was til recently. It's a tiny 2GB player powered by one AAA cell, sort of a shrunk down version of your T10. The most recent incarnation was basically...

Oh really, to what? The even older E280? Not the Fuze+ I hope, it's just a terrible player. The closest thing I can think of is the Cowon C2, which has no Rockbox support.
