I am thinking I want to get an MP3 player for sermons and music. I wanted to know if anyone has a suggestion for something $200 or under that would suit this purpose.

My understanding about IPod's is that everything has to come from ITunes. Is this correct? I want to be able to download sermons and music (maybe onto the computer) and then transfer to the player. I want to be able to use it in any room, so I am assuming that it would need to be docked with external speakers.

I know I don't make a lot of sense, but I also know you are great at deciphering!

Thank you
