Best sound out of an MP3 player... period

Summary: I've had my Nomad Jukebox 3 for 3 or 4 years (since the 40GB model first came out), and I can tell you that without a doubt this is the best sound you'll hear from any MP3 player (or WAV player for that matter). Absolutely clean and brilliant. Some other things few seem to mention: 1) RECORDS WAV or on-the-fly MP3s from either line in or OPTICAL IN. These devices are used by many recording engineers for this reason alone.
Great for recording - New Batteries now available!

Summary: This unit still has some of the best features, especially for high quality recording of any portable MP3 player. Creative recently announced new batteries available for these units so that other review's fear of obsolescence are at least postponed.
Summary: Having had an Archos Jukebox previously the sound quality of the Nomad 3 is a breath of fresh air. Just running a $120 set of Sennheiser HD457 headphones. Then I connected it to my computer. YUK! The software writers should be sacked and then shot, and repeat! Why are they sticking with this idea?? Every other HD MP3 player just pops up as a drive, and that works for everyone... it's a computer thing! Couldn't I just have the option to browse my Nomad as a HD.
Summary: So, I got a Jukebox 3 for Christmas two years ago. Since then, I took it with me backpacking for six months around the world, use it daily at work, take it with me whenever I travel, use it as my home stereo, and generally beat the hell out of it. I've dropped it multiple times on hard surfaces, and exposed it to heat, cold, and almost anything you can think of. I am so impressed with this product and its durability. Sure, there are some drawbacks to the Jukebox 3.
Summary: I have read a lot of negative reviews on this system and would just like to add my own Imput. I bought my NJ3 in SEP 02. I took it with me to Afghanistan for 7 months. Afghanistan happens to be the worse place for Electronics in the worlds. Dust and filth... Just Awful. I dropped my player quite a few times. Took it with me on missions. Used it every single day. After 2 years my player still works perfectly. Its worn beyond belief but still works fine.
Summary: Hi I have the Nomad Jukebox 3 40GB version for 2 years now. I must say this is the best Audio product I have ever had. I use it in the car and at work and really love its great sound. This week I wanted to buy an extra Nomad 3 for my girlfriend and guess what. They've replaced the Nomad 3... Can you believe that??? Their best product ever. They must be very very stupid. Creative start producing the NOMAD 3 again,,, please ...
Summary: ...and I'm one of them. I've had this thing for a little over a year now, and have been loving having my entire music collection at the touch of a button (or a couple of buttons). For anyone who has this product or is thinking of getting one, I would recommended looking for notmad software for it. I think that it works better than the creative soft. that comes with the player, and there is a free version you can try out.
Summary: I bought this product because of the many features it has. I particularly like the fact that you can record from other players onto it. You can take a line in off of your computer and record streaming audio to listen to later. The USB 1 is reasonble,although USB 2 would be nice. It only takes about 1-2 seconds per song to load. The button layout takes a little getting used to, but once you do, it becomes intuitive.
Summary: This is a good machine. A bit overpriced perhaps, but it works great. Occasionally it will lock up, which just needs a quick reset. I'm tired of these Apple slaves pushing that eccentric garbage on everyone. The ipod is not better, merely comparable. Not superior by any stretch of the delusional apple worldview. Think different, what a joke.
