Ross already mentioned the Neuros (which I have and love, there's almost
enough people in the Triangle to start a users group). There's also the
Rio Karma, which looks much cooler and is significantly smaller.
Additionally, there's good grey firmware for one or two iRiver players.
Apple has yet to annouce and ogg related firmware for the iPod (because,
apparently, they're total bastards), but you can load Linux on the iPod, so
presumably there's a route for you (if you're into pain and suffering).

Simply a matter of adoption. Ogg Vorbis already does multi-channel. Vote
