Big thanks to evilhippie for this, prolly already posted in this thread, but for those who missed it; Installing the Google Play market on the z2 is actually relatively simple, and doesn't require you to be rooted.  You can download the files you need from this link, there will be 3 .apk files that you simply place in the /apk folder on the internal memory.  More on it here:   http://anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=69228
I bought the cowon Z2 VERY shortly after it came out, at the time this solution was not available (or at least didn't come up with a google search the solution was originally for the D3 after all). You did not state the missing license files were available Evilhippie did (thanks again evilhippie) Shortly after I got the Z2 I Got the Walkman Z1060, which is lightyears ahead of the Z2 in all ways SOUND QUALITY ESPECIALLY after that the Z2 sat unused, Look in my sig, see...
the license files, YES, please post that in the thread link i posted above. thank you evilhippie
http://www.head-fi.org/t/594395/cowon-z2-the-complete-review-from-izzi-going/465 then show us, we'd love to know how you got google play to work
Android is free for anyone to use, Google's services are not. Cowon did not get a google license for its devices, which is why it doesn't ask you to log in to your google account like android phones do when you set the Z2 up. Go ahead go to XDA developers and get the .APK for google play and use SWM to install it.  it wont work, because there is no google account tied to the device. If you install Poweramp even if you buy it direcly from their website and install it...
Sony NW MS9 bought it in 2001? 2002? for about $300     had to use sony's software to load music on it was a pain.  website i pulled the image from was the same place i bought it from back in the day, crutchfield
I have an Archos G9 101 tablet and USB DACS (My leckerton UHA4 just works with it) and USB speakers just work, little jittery sometimes
I Have a Z2, the stock player has tagging\art issues, the best advice i can give you is to install amazon apps store and download a different media player, POWERAMP is not option, I have tried EVERYTHING, the lack of Google account on the Z2 makes Poweramp not an option. And Sony Walkman Z's and F's running ICS are AWESOMELY Stable and the S-Master amp powers my UM3X RCs nicely...The Z2 isnt buggy overall, just the lack of a google account really limits it.
People on ebay are selling Japanese ones, but they want CRAZY money for them, There was a guy selling a Japanese one from Spain (had excellent feedback too!) for $380, a 64gb in black, which was a FAIR price, but the auction ended before I was ready to buy....
Just updated my Z Thanks a Million!   Does anyone know where I can pick up a BRAND NEW SEALED 64 gb Walkman Z (any color, but pref black) Japanese model for 400-450 (I cannot justify any more than that) ?
