    Well, I've been putting it off for a while... I kinda wanted one, but didn't want to spend the money...

    I found one online for $76 shipped, so I was gonna order it... But today, I was at WalMart, and saw the RCA Lyra 128mb mp3 player with the earphones that I wanted and an armband for it, for $85. I bought it... Yeah I could have saved $9, but this was here.. :)

    :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Anybody who's thinkin about an mp3 player, this is a great one.. Even has an SC/MMC expansion port so you can add more memory if you want to or have interchangable memory cards... :)

    And the quality is UNBELIEVEABLE! I mean UNBELIEVEABLE!!

    128mb is more than enough for me... 40gb of mp3? I wouldn't know what to listen to... I'd have so much... lol..

    Plus if i want more, i buy a 256 or 512 memory stick and pop it in.. :)

    you talking about the Rio or the lyra? I just use standard USB drag and drop, not the software that comes with it...

    And I wont use a MP3 CD Player, because the Anti-shock only lasts for 8 seconds, and when your on a treadmill running, i dont want to have to worry about supporting my CD player just right so i dont skip the music.

    I bought the Rio for my ex, cuz she ran 6-8 miles at a time(I don't miss her, but I do miss that body.) Anyway, the sound quality sucked, and it didn't hold shit for songs. I had a mp3 disc player, which was much better, but yeah, too heavy and skipped too much for jogging.
