I already own more iPods than I really need, but I've heard so many great things about the Sony players, most especially the sound, that I've pretty much decided to get one (and, oh yes, Amazon.co.uk also has a pretty sweet deal on the NWZ-S639 at present). I can cope with the absence of bookmarking and gapless, but I'm not sure about the lack of a facility to deal with compilation albums of which I have quite a few. I really don't want my artist list jam-packed with a gazillion artists many of whom only have one song associated with their names. Do Sony players take account somehow of compilation albums, and, if not, is there any way around the problems that such albums create on a player?
Thanking you in advance for any help you can provide!
