Basically I want a MP3 player that is of good quality and will last a few years. I love the functionality of my old Sansa Clips and would love something similar but better quality. I am willing to spend up to $300.

Thank you all! [more inside]

It goes without saying, I hope, that the individual lossless files produced would be conveniently labeled (e.g. composer-work-movement) and properly tagged. Thanks.
I'm having issues playing back music.
