Need help.... Cant decide
Really struggling to make a decision regarding MP3 player. My plan was to buy an Ipod Classic and remote control dock, connect to my old Arcam and transfer all my music onto it. I could then buy other docks and move my collection around the house. I'm sure quite alot of other folks have the same idea. After alot of forum searching I was deciding between the Marantz or Onkyo dock, then I happened across a review of the Sony NWZ818!!! Apparently awesome sounding machine which pounds the Ipod classic to dust. The more I read the more I changed my mind about the Ipod and it had a dock as well, but no remote! I was quiet prepared to put up with the lack of storage but not a remote.
So I can't find any accessories for the Sony or for that matter any other MP3 player except the Ipods. Is the Sony so far ahead in terms of sound? Would I notice the difference through my amp as its not really gonna be used with earbuds?
Finally..... Have I missed anything? Ideally I would love a home unit that would do this but it seems no one is producing anything for the home market.
