DAP under a $1000 please

Can anyone sugget a good DAP player for an advanced classical musician crippled by extremely developed ears and brain function. I require accurate sound but also will dip into RAP where I would need some accurate and deep bass. Budget puts me under $1000 and I would like some decent internal storage. Reviews are often talking about case and looks which is not where I'm at. I need the best audio quality at this price point. Also suggestions for compatible closed headphones (for travel) would also be greatly appreciated. Looking for personal listening comments rather than endless specs. Many thanks to you all.

I've also been looking into DAPs recently. I just bought a pair of CA Solaris, so I really need a good source. Right now, I'm leaning towards the Sony ZX300. I'm also considering the Sony WM1A in the second-hand market. Other of my choices include the Onkyo DP-X1 and A&K SR15. Hope this helps.
Thanks so much for this. I am also following this trail. With the Onkyo please check out the later version DP-X1A which has some imporvements you may find interesting.
