Title: Currently Available Players for Rockbox?
Post by: ZOS474 on September 12, 2017, 09:07:24 PM
Hi All, I previously upgraded my old sandisk sansa and 2x creative zens to rockbox and love the RB system (and I MUST have balance control due to a hearing loss accident, which isn't easily available on new players with native os.)  But each unit has eventually died and now I am out of units to upgrade.  All the RB ports appear to be for defunct units that cost an arm and a leg for used units (probably because they are RB compatible.)  So, my question/advice request is - what currently-available units (i.e. still sold new) and lowish cost <$50 maybe $70 max can be upgraded to RB?  I've scanned through all the stable ports and am not seeing anything - all are for units released many years back (but I hope I am wrong.) Thanks in advance!

Bilgus, thanks for your quick reply (and apologies for my slow one.)  The evening you sent your reply I went to the site and saw a few different colors available - so thought I would wait until the morning to purchase.  Next morning all were gone apart from the red ones!!!  So I got 3 of those to have some spare for the future & just got them today in the mail, upgraded to RB and I'm a happy camper again! (Though have to say I am missing my larger Creative Zen screen...)  Thanks again for your help on this.
