Never ever dealt with MP3s in the past but am now looking to buy one for myself and the one for the missus. Looking for use in the gym but also to use on holidays etc so looking at a big memory. I have never converted any CD's into MP3 before so looking for a real idiot friendly player that will allow me to do it easily. Like the look of the new Sony and have always fancied an I River but concerned they may be a bit bulky for the gym. Rio Carbon has also been considered. Would also appreciate any advice on earphones to go with them Over to you folks, much appreciated.
