Default Recs for mp3 w/good external speaker?

Hi, I'm back after a long time because my Creative Zen X-Fi Style (32gb) is on its last legs. It wasn't a great player but it had pretty good sound ouput from the built-in speaker.

Now I need something new, and the speaker is what's keeping me from just getting a sansa clip zip. I bought a Cowon iAudio 9 but the speaker is too quiet. Has anyone tried the native speaker on the Cowon iAudio 10?

Please recommend some players with a good built-in speaker. Thanks!

Samsung galaxy player 5.0, Sony S545 both have stereo speakers and good battery life(at least when not using the speakers.)

Thanks Marvin, as for the Samsung, I'd like something a bit smaller, easier to carry around.

The Sony would work, but that model has been replaced so it could be tricky to find one.

If you're showing friends a video of your grand-daughter and want them to here the sound a speaker is nice.

Other than that, I agree with you.

Might I suggest something like this instead. Seriously, ok it might be an additional thing to carry around (and expensive) but the sound is gonna be WAY better than any built in speaker, and thus gives you far more choice of what player to buy that doesn't revolve around a built in speaker quality.
Oh and yes there is a stereo cable for this so i think it works non bluetooth also.

I find them quite handy for podcasts in a quiet room, especially if you don't want to risk falling asleep with fragile headphones on.
