Apologies if my question has been discussed many times before on the forum!! I'm wanting to get myself a Portable Hard Drive to carry all my music. However, I will only need to use it through :- i) Various Audio kit at home (Digital Optical output (or Analogue output) to my Home Cinema system/ Analogue output to a different micro system) ii) My 2 different cars (one company, 1 family) I'm not going to use it through the headphones at all ! My leaning at the moment is for the iRiver HP140 as it seems to have the best connectivity and sound quality (important to me) Any advice/ experiences to share ? Should I go for the iRiver or the iPOD ??
