This might be a naff post, but it's one I've been thinking of for a few days. I'm not interested in "what" DAP you have, more what you like about having a DAP in general. For example, the obvious one from me is that I can get my collection of circa 200 CD's onto a little box the size of a cigarette packet. The best thing for me though, is that since I always used to listen to music either in the car, or on a stereo at home that I never really cranked up, I love the way that I can now hear everything that I should be able to I often find myself tuning into a specific instrument on a track that I never even knew was there, or the subtle sounds that all go to make up the whole, but previously I was unaware of I guess its opened up a whole new level of listening to me that I never had previously. So that's my reason. I'm intrerested if there are any others out there. Mark.
