What MP3 player has the best audio quality?
It's always bugged me this one. I have a 1st Gen iPod Touch and my wife a Creative Zen from around the same period. However I always seem to get more joy sound-wise from here Creative rather than from the iPod no matter how I play with the settings. Now it's 5 years down the road and there are whole raft of manufacturers selling MP3 players (of varying quality) yet none (apart from Apple) seem to advertise or promote them, and I'm pretty sure that at least one company has spent more time developing the sound quality rather than the 'image' of their product. So my question is this:
'Which MP3 player has the best audio quality/technology?'
I'll also allow Phones to be included in this as many are placing the top flight MP3 technologies into their phones these days as well. So which one?
