Hi guys,

Not the usual guitar & pedals question here. Hope you don't mind. smile.gif
I am currently looking for a good MP3 player which have to include those requirements, by priority :

1- doesn't need any DRM
2- no need of any specific software to transfer the MP3 (this mean you can drag & drop from windows directly in the player, via USB)
3- as nice interface as possible
4- the capacity is not that important, 1 or 2 Go is enough
5- no need for video or other support, only music
6- i will use it for sport so if it's doesn't weight like 1 kilogram it's cool...
7- and finally, cheaper is better tongue.gif

Do you know anything like that ? Any suggestion ?

Thanks wink.gif

There should be millions on E-bay or any online market.

Ahah, I know there should be million. That's the reason of the present post. wink.gif
I need a brand, name and model. Don't want to buy the one among the million which will not suit my needs. Especially if I am buying it on eBay. tongue.gif

Seems like a good choice! This topic is really interesting as I always get lost when it comes to choosing the right mp3 player...Now I have some cool recommendations (on that web site)...

There are indeed lots of models out there, some are completely silly, and some look awesome. I'm not sure what is your budget, but I would definitely stick to famous brands, and consider investing more money in proper headphones (if you don't have these already). I think these are more important than the player itself, since they provide the information for the ear.
