AMP3 59 heal
cowon 107 hurt
It's Sep. now, the DAP maket is beginning to warm up. There are several big brands rush to announce the new models to cater the new shoping season. Microsoft launched the ZUNE HD, and Creative declaired the X FI, Ipond claimed 3 "New" models. I have read throug all the news and comments. I feel there is nothing "new", There are not so many positive reports on how ZUNE is HD ( High Definition) Maybe it is only stay on it's name, Creative X-Fi seems tells nothing to prove it's "Fi", So if the new creative DAP Is hifi or not is still a "X". IPOD make a joke to the market, Touch change the memory,and Nano adds in a camera, are they "New?" or new with the gimmicks?
I can predict all above "New DAPs" news will fade soon. Musical lovers have been dispointed at such a crapy gimmicks for many years.
The market still love SONY X, Cowon S9 and AMP3.
Sony and Cowon should learn the lessons, the customers are not easy to be fooled by any gimmicks, eventhough you can fool their eyes with any gimmicks, but final decision are by their ears.
AMP3 is definitely going on the correct route which only focus on the pure music presentation. it's amp fuction to me is worth 10 crap cameras and videos. yes, memory thing is hard disk work, camera thing is Digital camera's work. Video is at least the PC's work.
To DAP , I only ask the pure music porformance.
