What is the cheapest and/or best option for listening to streaming (cached) music at the gym? Looking for hardware and software options.

I've been torrenting music for years and copying it to my old-school Sansa Clip. However, in the last year I've become addicted to Spotify and I'm willing to pay a premium to never have to go through the hassle of downloading music again.
However, I currently do not have a device that can run the Spotify app (I don't have a smart phone and don't plan on getting one in the near future). I will be using it primarily at the gym (which does not have free wi-fi) and while out on runs.
I'm looking for advice on two things:
1. What is the cheapest but still good quality device that I should use? ipods are $200, and i saw a Samsung Android thing for $120... is there anything better?
2. What software is best for streaming music? Right now I'm willing to pay the $10 a month for Spotify, but if there is a better service I'd be willing to switch.
Any advice would be appreciated.
