Australia only sale. If JK1 wants to fly over he's welcome too.
In my opinion C3 kind of jumps straight past C2 for comparisons. I've been using the S9 instead. I;d love to let you listen to it actually.
Would help with my long term conversion plan I have layed out for you.
I'm not a Cowon hater, necessarily....I have owned a couple. If the i9 hadn't had such a cluster- UI and touchpad, I would have happily kept it. It was certainly better sounding than the original D2 that I had at the same time, and I did have it set where I was getting very nice sound out of it. The BBE effect and most of the presets on it just sounded too artificial to me, but I did use some Mach3Bass and Stereo Enhance (not 3D surround...that also was no good).
I just think people get a little too hyper about the BBE, thinking it is the best thing ever, that's all. (Just like there are Sony guys, and Sansa guys, and iPod guys) Just think, at one point I had 4 or 5 Sansas running Rockbox, and I'm down to just one now, as my ultraportable....lol
