Default iTunes Sync and Compatibility

Hi there, everyone!

I'm new here, so sorry to bother you with a question that might have popped up already, but here goes anyway.

I have my entire music library in iTunes (Windows) - yes, I know! -, which took me ages to organize (artwork/tags), so I am not interested in transferring everything to another media manager and potentially screw up my tags. Also, I have bought music from the iTunes store, which means I need a portable media player that is capable of working with the AAC format (.m4u, nothing with DRM though). I really don't want to buy an iPod, but I do want to have a player that is capable of working with iTunes. My questions basically are:

1. Can the X-Fi2 sync with iTunes or do I need a third-party programme for that, e.g. the Creative Centrale, or is it really that bad?

2. Can the X-Fi2 display iTunes artwork or does it need to be embedded in the ID3 tags?

3. Does the X-Fi2 display non-roman (Japanese, Korean, Chinese, diacritics, etc.) characters correctly in the ID3 tags?

I know the answers to these questions for iPods: yes, yes, yes. I am hoping the answers for the X-Fi2 are similar, so I can buy it.

Or can you recommend a better (with regards to sound quality and compatibility to my "demands" above) 16 GB non-Apple PMP? I live in Finland, so please do not suggest a Cowon, as I cannot buy them over here. Most other brands should be ok though.

Thanks for your help!
