You probably remember when your Ipod was your best friend.
You ripped all your CDs into mp3s, you downloaded even more from the Newsgroups, Limewire and PirateBay.
You traded bootleg Phish concerts with psudo-hippies across the globe.
You pried open the case and installed a 200gb harddrive so you could take more of your collection with you.....
...but after a while, iTunes wore out it's welcome. It kept bloating larger and larger. It insisted on installing Quicktime again and again. It kept Win7 from ever shutting down. It would not play your ever increasing FLAC collection.
So, like many people, your iPod stopped getting new music, and you just used your crappy sounding, but convenient, cell phone to listen to new tunes.
Pioneer heard your pain and came out with an audiophile ipod, the XDP100R.
It plays ANYTHING including FLACs (those are perfect copies of CDs) and the new MQAs.
It has an audiophile D/A converter, not just some crappy cell phone chip.
It has an audiophile headphone amp, so it can drive real headphones, not just little earbuds.
It has hard buttons to control it while in your pocket (it has a touch screen too).
NO ITUNES OR QUICKTIME !!!!!!!!!!!
Besides it's onboard memory, it takes 2 microSD cards, for up to a terabyte of high-rez storage.
You can swap memory cards if you want to instantly change your entire selection (great for a date if you don't want her to see you have any country music in your collection).
It streams high-rez music from Tidal, Spotify, Qobuz if you are into that kind of thing.
These things were always $700-800 but now they are on sale for $299
