I only need an mp3 player for my holidays really. I will probably never use it during the week, and very rarely at other times. For this reason I'm considering the 5GB Rio Carbon. It seems to have garnered quite a few excellent reviews regarding sound quality and battery life. I was just curious if anybody on here had bought one. Appreciate that something along the lines of Sennheiser PX100s would be needed in order to maximise it's sound quality, but are they any other issues that I should be worried about ? From what I can gather the iPod Mini is a little case of style over substance ? Battery life does seem to be a bit of an issue with it, and it's also at least £30 more than the Rio on eBay. ( Rio Carbons are typically around £140 on there.) Cheers for your input.
