      The Alpine in my car plays them, does that count? Never really been a fan of MP3s. Having a shitload of compressed audio tracks doesn't really excite me.

        I have one of those cd/mp3 player things. I have quite a bit of mp3s...but that's mainly because of the type of music I listen to. It's not available here in the states for the most part, so I download them.

            The only MP3's i have are stored on my computer. I never went out and got the actual player accessory, but I have "I-tunes".

                  I'm perfectly fine with switching cds. I only listen to music at home or in the car, so I don't need a portable player. Plus mp3s don't sound as good.

                    20 gb iPod, Trinnie, 4th Generation. Over 3000 songs, using the rest for old Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Rush, and Yes albums. got a sweet bright ornage glow-in-the-dark cover. iPod's are the greatest invention since sliced bread, if you think sliced bread is a good invention. They are worth every penny in my opinion.

                      Depends on the kbs rate on the mp3.

                      128kbs = normal/average
                      160kbs = a bit better, but not cd quality
                      192kbs = cd quality.

                      Anything higher than that = a lot of hd space needed on the computer. lol

                        hmm..I have a 10Gb, 3rd generation. It's still in fairly good condition because I just recently started using it. Do you think I should sell it and buy a 20 Gb instead? (anything other 20G doesn't make sense to me) I notice they have a lot more accessories for the 4th generation Pods. My other dilemma is that I have an old blueberry clamshell ibook that's not compatible with ipods at all, so I have to buy a whole new computer

                        I didn't say there was anything wrong with CD's. That's fine if you're at home or in your car. But when you're traveling..who wants to be carrying around all those disks. With the Mp3 players it's not so much about quality but having the convience of access to your whole CD collection. If quality is more important then they really might not be for you. But I think it's great. Sometimes you just want to hear one song from one album, then go on to another album. If you don't have the time or the means to burning mix CDs, Mp3s are a good option.

                                  And that's entirely dependent upon two factors: 1. The quality of your equipment and 2. Your ears. Personally, I'd go with lossless.

                                    I've been looking at mp3 players for a while and I'm planning on getting the Creative Labs Zen Micro. Of all the micro hardrive players I've looked at it seems to be the best for its buck(sorry ipod lovers).
