Help Recommend plz? flash-based player, with monochrome screen, quality FLAC playback.

Hello, my Sansa Clip+ audio jack has gone a bit flakey, and it is enough of a nuisance for me to want to get a new "MP3" player.

Basically all I want to do is play about 7 of my most treasured CDs in Lossless quality, preferably FLAC, since that is how they are encoded. I have used iPod nanos in the past, with their Apple lossless format, and was satisfied. However nowadays I don't want a Nano because the newer models have a load of stuff like touch-screen, movie and music viewing, that I don't want, and I don't see the point in paying extra for this kind of stuff.

I also I can't be bothered with hacky things, like old players with Rockbox.

Anyway let me get to the what I am looking for:

Budget: I'm from the UK, and 100 is my max. I guess in the US that is like $150 or something.

Listening to several of my treasured CDs encoded in lossless quality for my "golden ears". That is all I care about.

Screen - Monochrome. No color. No touching. No nonsense

Storage capacity - Upto 8 GB more then enough. SOLID-STATE (flash). No spinning hard drives.

Type/design - Grass-roots PMP . Just simple music playback for an "audiophile" with "golden-ears".

UI/Controls: Tactile buttons. No touch screen. I could probably deal with touch pad style buttons, but the mechanical "click" is always best.

Features :

  • Ease of use, Intuitiveness, both these were on the old iPod nano (sigh )
  • High quality audio playback.
  • Ease of connectivity
  • Can drag and drop music files into player. No need for some silly client like MusicMatch or iTunes or whatever ()....

Thanks alot,
