I still listen to one every single day. Love it. Perfectly portable, great external buttons and really decent sound quality.
The J3 is discontinued so you can't expect people to talk about it much. I first got it in 2010, and it served me well. I moved on to the Fiio X3. It may be a little buggy, but at least Fiio communicates with the customers.
Are the files 24/192? The J3 DAC chip can only decode 24/96 and will freeze if you try to play 24/192
Ah, I guess I am mistaken!
a) its UI is as stable as it gets - that is, when you play the correct files on it
b) it plays fine my high bitrate Porcupine Tree flac files (which btw , as a band PT blow Muse out of the water - get some albums of them and see for yourself -no need to thank me always a pleasure to show music lovers something new)
I have a J3 since 2010 , no problems/complaints whatsoever - sure there are better (and more expensive) DAPs out there , but the combination of stable UI/value for money/easy to use/great battery/decent sound , i don't think there are many that surpass it.
Hi, I consider buying the Cowon J3.
1) What is the max sd card capacity?
2) When a track ends and it's continuing to the next-Is there a little pause? Because i am using it for classical music where tracks are joined together. And if i rockbox it will it change?
3) Is the sound quality neutral, natural and balanced (for orchestral music)?
4) Is there a difference between the 8Gb version and the other versions besides capacity?
If i liked the ATH-M40 do you think this dap will fit those headphones? And is there a way to make it support more than 8000 songs? And what about 128GB sd card?
