I am waiting for Ogg Vorbis support as well. Seems that the floating point issue makes things complicated for current dsps. MPC should be supported, i wonder if hardware manufacturers can contact a .com site to deal with mpc license issues? Or quite simply musepack marketing sucks  I would also like small stand alone players, for example many VCD players can also play mp3. VCD players are at least half the size of typical dvd players, and they are also (at least) half the prize

When I see a iPod with Ogg Vorbis support for under 100 e (this forum doesn't support Euro symbol?), I'm going to buy it.

I currently own the iRiver ChromeX IMP-150.

I love it.

My girlfriend got a couple of months before that an also really nice (but a bit less nice  ) RioVolt SP-90 from me as a birthday present (by the moment she got it, it was already upgraded to IMP-100's 2.10 iRiver's firmware...  ).

Both players are nice, but the IMP-150 owns it by far with the nice display and nice remote it brought along...

I'm having some wet dreams about the famous Ogg Vorbis support possibly coming... but I am happy now as it is, and it won't make me lose any sleep if I don't get it...

I bought the IMP-150 for 100 euros in Spain, btw. Worth every cent.

My first and current audio player is a Panasonic SV-SD80, with SDMI built inside 

With 96kbps AAC, being able to fit 9 cd's on the 512mb SD card is nice, but the bundled Realone-bloatware is a pain really.

The real good thing, is that the unit makes a very good necklace B)

I doubt it's easy to do, but does anyone know if ISO AAC files can somehow be converted and imported for that player ?

I'm a memory base audio player designer. I have many audio player sample that i can use. But I mostly like that one manufacted by ourselves with my mp3,mpc and aac supported firm ware. Vorbis support is hard to implement because it's too flexible and needs too many RAM.

Samsung's Yepp 700H which I have loaded with mp3PRO files.  It works fine, and I'll use it until all the other wishes in this thread have been fulfilled and a "universal" player comes along.

Later.

I'am happy with my SlimX, but will be more happy if iRiver eliminates presence of evil wma and asf in my player and replace it with MPC or at least OGG. Or will provide different firmwares.

- huge hd (20 gigs minimum), something that can be easily used as a portable hd
- vorbis, mpc, ape player
- complete rg support

My HP Jornada 525, PocketPC, Hitachi SH-3 with 128 MB CF-Card works ok for me at the moment (of course I use it mainly as calendar, address book, calculator, and so on). Annoying is the high power consumption, and the small, built in (not changeable) rechargeable battery. It's only possible to play about 2.5 to 3 hours of music with the screen switched off. Then the thing has to recharge for two hours. The second thing I hate about it is, that it's too slow for OGG. Although there's a player around, I can't play OGGs :-( Perhaps there will be more optimised ogg-code in the future?

Regards, fileman.

Am I the only one with a Nomad Jukebox 3 20 GB? Very happy with it by the way, especially with the sound quality. Made all my old MP3's sound like sh*t but that 's probably Blade's fault ;-).

I can only imagine what it would be like to someday have portable DVD players that play Musepack or (gasp) lossless files.

Musepack OK, but lossless is pointless (unless it's DVD player).

If you're on CDs, with lossless you can store the same songs than a CD audio, or a few more.
CDAudio uses full 2352bytes/sector for audio (CD capacity aprox 800Mbytes) while lossless is data and it uses 2048bytes/sector + ECC codes, so space that can be used is 700Mbytes. Unless you want more disc reliability on cheap discs, there is no point on doing so....

IMO lossless is made for HD archiving.

I was just about to buy one (smartcard or compactflash based), when I decided to upgrade my mobile... I know have a Siemens SL42e (unlocked and upgraded to SL45i after firmware upgrades) and it can play MP3 very well.

Plus it use a MMC for storage, up to 128MB  I am sure it would be possible for Siemens to add support for Ogg with a new firmware update. Time to email them.

I highly recommend it to anyone

I own a Dioneer DCP100 and am quite happy with it - I believe it is a good value choice.
