Danger Mouse

Digital Audio Player.

Okay, so I'm in the market for a digital audio player, and I'd like some
suggestions.

Here's the requirements:
  • Ogg Vorbis Support
  • Audible.com Support
  • Decent size storage (>20GB prefered)
I have yet to find a single player that can meet those three simple
requirements. The Rio Karma almost does, and should have. . . according
to a press release last year, Rio was going to be releasing a firmware
update to add Audible support. Unfortunately, they've since flaked out.
iRiver has made a similar announcement a few months ago, but I'm not
going to buy a player based on "expected" features promised in a press
release. The Rio example shows what folly that would be.

So, anyone have any suggestions or recommendations?
