    Coronet was kind enough to give me a thorough answer to my PM regarding his iaudio. I’m going to continue the discussion here so everyone can contribute/benefit. My original PM to him was:

    I’ll post his answer if I get his permission as this was a PM. For me, with a win98se PC, it looks like it’s coming down to the iaudio 20G - 40G (the front-runner for my needs), or the iRiver (20 or 40), which is still in the running cuz it has optical out. Here are some questions regarding both for anyone who knows:


    • Is it easy to navigate through thousands of songs?
    • How has the durability been with your unit, and how long have you had it?
    • Is the sound quality decent when going line-out to stereo? Enough power?
    • Anything you don’t like about your purchase?
    I'll also consider a hi-capacity home (non-poratable) unit, but I can't find many of those. Any other comments about these players appreciated.
