Default Thinking about buying a Cowon X9

Firstly, apologies if I'm posting in the wrong section.

I'm thinking about buying a Cowon X9, as all I want is to be able to listen to music at a good quality. I don't need to watch videos, use apps or play games, just a good device that plays music.

After some research I found that the X9 has a software db limitation of 8k music files, including external memory. Now I have already a music collection of around 5.5k music files, and I was hoping to pay a bit more for a device that would last me a long time. I probably wont reach 8,000 quickly, but I just don't like knowing that limitation is there...

Is there any workaround for this? Such as using custom firmware like Rockbox?

If there isn't, would there be any point in getting the 32GB version over the 16GB (which is £30 cheaper), and just buying an external sd card, seeing as the storage is "limited"?

Any thought would be appreciated, as if I'm spending a lot of money on a music device, I want to make sure I make the right choice!
