  • Creative Zen 32GB -- $140 at Amazon (Actually, I just got it in January )
  • Koss Sporta-Pro headphones -- $23 at Amazon (Well, my pair is at least 6 years old and still working great!)
  • Koss VC20 volume control -- $8 at Amazon
  • Wide brimmed canvas fishing hat -- Plenty, from $10 to $20 at Amazon
  • Leather case with belt clip -- $5 at a local deep discount store, intended for a cell phone but it fits the Zen perfectly.

Being able to get (almost) the whole setup without getting off my butt -- Priceless!


And, just in time for outdoor walking weather!

I just picked up something like that, but I wanted video support (as tiny as it is).

Fuze+ 8GB $90

Sansa Clip+ - $50 if bought at the right time
Kingston 8GB MicroSDHC card - $10
Panasonic HJE900 - $140 from Video Direct

Total = $200

You can't get much better sound quality, memory, and features than that for under $200.

This thread seems to have rebounded slightly. I'll play. For Christmas the girlfriend decided that her father needed an MP3 player. So ofcourse I get branded as "The guy that knows these things". Heres what I came up with

8gb Clip+, $45 free shipping, Amazon
Blue V Moda Vibes (Cable revision version), $21, Amazon
8gb microsd card, $10, again...wait for it....Amazon

For $76 I think I pulled off quite a nice setup. If you keep your eyes open Amazon can have some real steals. I paid $5 less for the 8gb clip+ than the 4gb which was $50.

Mine,yes. His, hell no! I'd get so many freaking calls about how to use it that I'd have to drive to Sault Ste Marie to unrockbox it (still, I wanted to )
