I've found I can't just "shuffle all" on my high capacity players anymore. Some of the music I have is just too different from the rest, to be coming up in shuffle. Shuffle artist, that I can do....or shuffle one folder, like I do at work....but no more shuffle all. I've gone back to mostly listening to an album at a time.

I'm having the same issue with "shuffle all" myself,...too many genres clash.

Although i only have 20gb shuffles on my 32gb i9, and I consider myself to have quite eclectic taste, I guess i'm a bit more schizo in that I can handle going one extreme genre to the next.
I usually only listen to albums once or twice to begin with then the tracks I like get added to the shortlist and ultimately everything gets shuffled.
I quite often shuffle a genre also tho.

Bro, I shuffle dance, new wave, industrial dance, industrial metal, metal, hair metal, 70's disco, punk, classic rock, new age, pop, rock, alternative, alternative metal, progressive, easy listening, and many others. I'm pretty eclectic,...I just don't like da hippity-hoppity all that much,...except for maybe some Kanye West. And no classical,...I never got into it.

I've got over 8,600 songs (70.2 GB) on my iPod....that's a ton of different genres.

Shuffling disturbs the natural order of the universe for me. Two players would work for me fine, because I just do an album at a time. Although perfectly splitting the two with different material would be a challenge, although not insurmountable.

For the amount of money these cost, I'd rather just buy a better receiver or some better speakers for listening at home.
