Default Should I be worried about iRiver Corp?


I am in the market for an MP3 player, and had just about settled on the iRiver Clix Gen 2. I must not be alone, because the Clix-2 8GB player comes in right behind the iPhone, Wii and PS3 on CNET's most wanted list.

However, when I started actually looking for places to purchase one, I came up almost empty. Amazon carries it, which is good, but almost none of the other big internet stores sell the thing, and none of the mid-sized guys that I looked at do either. Some of the REALLY big boys, like Circuit City and Best Buy, don't carry any iRiver products (I was hoping Circuit City would have it, since I still have a gift card there from Father's Day!)

Then, as I've been reading customer reviews on the Clix-2, I started reading some unfortunate stories about the level of customer support, some quality issues, and other problems.

Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but it seems as if iRiver must be having problems at a corporate level, and this might make me shy away from the Clix (based on the name of this Forum, I won't tell you which player would be my second choice! ).

Are there any rumors out there that iRiver is in trouble? Will they be in this game for the long haul?
