    please - for the very best quality sound.

    Already have an iAudio 7 and am thinking of a D2 16GB with DAB - any other suggestions - must have FLAC playing capabilities.

    Will be using my Shure SE530's btw.

    The Sony NWZ series are excellent for sound quality, though there are newer ones from the aforementioned company. I haven't looked for reviews for them in a while.

    Edit - crap sorry I didn't see you wanted FLAC playing abilities. Ignore.

    Kenwood Media keg I think it's called.

    Imported from japan for a silly price, but it's meant to be absolutely fantastic.

    From a musicians point of view - Sony NWZ-A818 is the best. Yes It does not have FLAC but when it sound this good with mp3 - who needs FLAC!
