Thumb Up Purchase advice on new DAP - SQ is most important

Hi guys,

I hope I will find an useful advice here. I already read a lot of threads and I anticipate part of your replies. Still, some things are note very clear to me.

I come from another forum where I read some recommendations: HiSoundAudio Rocoo P, Colorfly C3 and a few others. I couldn't find them here.

I'm looking to buy a new DAP. Right now I have an iRiver Spinn which I will sell soon.

Most important for me is Sound Quality. I don't care about videos, photos, big screen, etc. I will just carry the player in my pocket. So if it will have buttons instead of touch screen it'll be better...still I will handle it either way.

I'm mostly playing FLAC and mp3.
Another important thing for me is the battery life.
I don't care too much about capacity. 8GB should be ok...16GB even better, considering I'll use FLAC mostly.
I'm willing to spend up to 200$ if it's really worth.

Now, you'll probably suggest the Clip+.
-But I read about Rockbox, which is not clear to me what it is? A new firmware? Is it hard to install it?
-Are there also 16GB versions?
-As portable headphones I will use AKG K518.
-Is it worth to buy the "cheap" Clip+ and spare some money for a new pair of AKG K267 or should I invest in a more expensive player?

Thanks in advance!
