Exclamation Help Needed in picking the right MP3 player for my cafe

Hey everyone,

I run a cafe with a diverse mix of music that plays over our internal speakers. This causes a serious problem because when it switches from an old jazz song to a new rock song, the sound volume JUMPS wildly and we are constantly fiddling with the volume.

I hate iPod (and therefore loved to have found this forum), so I'm looking for another option, if possible. I don't need a lot of the specs that are discussed as it is not for personal use.

I used to have a old as hell Creative Zen that was modified with a 120gb hard drive that did everything I needed. I am blown away that I can't find the simple features in a new player. But maybe I don't know what I'm looking for.

Here are the key ingredients I am looking for.

1) Sound Equalizer! This is most important! I need something that will adjust the volume of tracks so they are about the same decibel level.

2) Large capacity - Preferably 120gb (or higher).

3) Ease of uploading/naming tracks. (I really have not liked the way our Zune has categorized music. Sometimes mp3s don't category easily under one album.)

4) Preferably the ability to delete tracks/albums right from the player. Often, there is a tech glitch, or the song is just awful, and needs to be deleted. I'd rather not have to zync up to do that.

Things I don't care about:

Screen graphics - My Zen used to have a bit screen and that was fine. text only is fine.

Sound Quality - It's in a public cafe over speakers. Any player is going to have good enough sound quality to cover what I need.

Video/photo capabilities. - Only need this for music, nothing more.

Can anyone help me and tell me some places I can look or what I should consider. Thank you!!!

- Ryan
