it's not about the sound quality.  I have used at least two MP3 players that don't allow you to specify the order in which to play the tracks. This is fine for ordinary pop songs but unacceptable for a prog album.

iPod Shuffle, for example, can't even play the songs in the same folder.

The iPod Touch is alright but you can't drag files into the device. You have to install the iTunes program and sync -- it's inconvenient.

I have used an MP3 player that can only play the songs in their alphabetical order.  So let's say I'm listening to Close to the Edge.  You're forced to listen to "And You And I" first, because it begins with the letter "A".

Wow. That absolutely sucks man. A dirty inconvenience indeed
