I was hoping to get advice on which model of Sansa you would recommend for me.
I want a player to use primarily in my car. I have a cassette adapter to use there and now am considering which MP3 player to get.
My music is almost all in AAC in iTunes (almost all ripped from my own CD’s, not bought from the iTunes store) and I don’t want to convert it all back to MP3 or rip it all again. So it seems I have 3 choices:
- Get an iPod
- Get one of the Sansas that supports AAC
- Get any Sansa, put Rockbox on it
I am leaning toward #2 or 3 because the iPods are just so much more expensive.
Basically my main concerns are that I can use this in the car and have it charging from the car charger while playing (and I want it to still play the same while charging as while not charging, with the same high quality). It would also be nice if it was safe to leave in the car and not have to constantly take it out and in even when the weather is cold or hot (I have read many people do this with iPods and have no problem with it.)
I have about 7GB of music right now. But I will surely get a bit more over time. So I need the ability to go up to maybe 16GB, whether natively or with an SD card.
So which model should I be looking at? Clip, Clip+, Clip Zip, Fuze, Fuze+? I’m unsure how to choose among these for my situation. I’d really appreciate any advice. I’d especially love advice from someone who has a Sansa they use in the car and is doing everything I want to do so they can vouch for a way of doing it that works well.
If you are doing this and can recommend which car charger to get to use with the model you recommend, that would also help a lot.
I’ve read through a lot of threads, but some are out of date and I am still confused as to which is best for my situation so I hope you don’t mind my post. And I wasn’t sure which forum to post in since my question cuts across models, so I put it here since this seems the most active. Thank you very much.
