This player has excellent sound but i would say that the manufacturers could have Quality control problems. I am returning the second faulty unit to Amazon. The first Sansa froze on sansa logo and despite trying all advice from Sansa and forums it would not boot up. The second Sansa has a fault with the headphone socket. Far too much force has to be used to insert plug. The unit switches on when inserting headphone plug and as the on/off switch is only a mm or so above the socket i can guess that the force required is moving the very small switch mechanism. It is excellent for using in the car through built in input so long as you set it for North America when setting up for first use. On Europe it is impossible to obtain enough volume to hear above car noise levels.
To be fair to Amazon the replacement unit arrived next morning. The faulty unit was collected by a courier the next day.
My wife has the basic 2gb Sansa clip and even though it hasn't been used much she has had no problems.
Not sure it plays AAC....
I've double checked with the test team and I'm told it does play AAC.
The sansa website and every other review out there claim otherwise. Sansa list AAC playback as a feature on the new 'clip zip'.
And it plays flac unlike the apple players ...

The gorgeous retro design is hard to resist, but the TEAC fails to deliver an engaging and musical performance at this price
The all-round ability of the Luna 7 means it should sit well with a very wide range of systems
A poor implementation of a neat concept, with poor sound to boot. Disappointing
