Since my favorite audio format is AAC, i want a CD player that allows burning of this kind of files and play then in a car, by now the best choice i've know of is

eXpanium EXP503
http://www.audio.philips.com/found.asp?Pro...e&AbsPosition=9

or either this baby with 8cm cds that is also cool:

eXpanium EXP401
http://www.audio.philips.com/found.asp?Pro...e&AbsPosition=4

While surfing in its official page, i encountered in both manuals this supported AAC format: ISO-13818-7 MPEG2 (low complexity profile), stereo, ADTS and ADIF header, AAC bitrate <160kbps. Newer models don't even claim AAC support sad.gif , ive sent a mail to them anyway.

Let me set things clear, <160 kbps means i cant use more than this bitrate??? if its true then it kinda sux, cuz i only like extreme encodes that are cd quality. So this is the reason i ask if there are any ISO Non-Encrypted AAC portable CD players out there that can hold any VBR AAC files, like -extreme (around 224kbps).

Thank You for your Time

The new Iriver IDP-100 states AAC support in the specifications. Although it's not a CD based player and in my opinion it has an ugly, fat design, it could be an interesting portable audio product.
