Considering the new 4Gb version and its good sound quality, it starts to become reasonable to support free lossless audio formats such as FLAC.
In my case, besides the audio quality matter, it is mainly a practical matter, since very often I get hold of music on formats that I then have the need to convert to WAV or MP3.
In my point of view the Clip, and other Sansa players, would be sure winners of they would go FLAC and beyound.
This is a shout out to the Sansa team from an undecided buyer.
Cheers to all readers
