Can anyone recommend a basic MP3 player?

I've been using my trusty Sony Walkman but it is old now and has issues.

I want something dedicated to AUDIO files - don't want extras that include video or ebooks or anything else.

I also download lectures and documentaries from YouTube so I just want a device that plays my MP3 and WMA files, no apps or anything needed.

Oh, and most importantly, it needs to have a button that allows me to rewind 5 or 15 seconds if I miss something. My Sony Walkman won't allow me to just go back a few seconds, it takes me back to the previous audio file.

I thought it would be easy to find such a thing but it's not.

Love the idea of swimming while listening. Those training for the Olympics now can read books while they train?

@jerola: Yes, I love being able to listen to books while I swim, though I'm afraid I've missed my chance at the Olympics. I use my Delphin for that, but it's hardly what I'd call 'basic', and the price is pretty steep.

As for an MP3 player that's just an MP3 player? Not sure. I know some like Sansa Clip, but don't know about features on it. And there's always iPods. The Nano was a good size for me, and handles most things I needed it to do.
