On loop mode, is there a pause before it replays? If so, how long?

It's about a half-second, unfortunately. You can get around this by editing the file and adding silence to the beginning or end of the audio. Also, the player is always in loop mode - there is no option for single play.

What speakers do you guys hook these little mp3 players up to? I have a set of these Altec Lansing 120i PC speakers that work with my iPod Shuffle. So if these $5 mp3 players will show up on my Mac (I emailed and asked them if it will work I'll see if I get a response) I can copy an mp3 file from the Desktop then these speakers should work. They come with a mini plug that normally plugs into the back of the Mac but also fits the headphone jack of the iPod.

You can use any amplified speakers that have a 1/8" stereo jack. The signal from the player is weak, pretty much just enough to drive a set of earbud headphones so using passive speakers doesn't work. Looks to me like those Altec speakers will be good, but do consider where they'll be used. If outdoors, you may need more wattage. Another plus for these players - take one with you when looking at computer speakers at the thrift stores. Makes it easy to test the speakers.
