Yes, it is the requirements of your computer, not what is in the X9.

It seems to be a nice looking player but just uses old technology.These new players need to give us more storage space.

If it has a higher res screen, was capacitive, came in a 64gb model, and had the same controls of the S9/J3 I'd say it's great. Sadly, it's got none of the things I mentioned, so it's a ***FAIL!!!*** mad.gif

Hmm, seems to me, from EP's description, that it actually HAS hardware controls:

 

Buttons: Power/Hold / FF / REW / Play/Pause / Vol+ / Vol –

 

 

And also from a thread at iaudiophile describing the differences between X7 & X9: Physical Buttons: power/hold, m, vol+, vol- (X7) vs power/hold, ff, rew, play/pause, vol+, vol- (X9)

Why does cowon always tries to change everything, even if it works, crazy company. Evolution is fine but why not sticking with a proven design like the J3 and improve it (to set an example of a product line) instead of making a whole different thing, is like they start from zero everytime. crazy company blink.gif

Fully agree. Ditching the J3 without offering a worthy successor in the same vein was downright silly. As far as I could gather, Cowon doesn't make much sense anymore to a lot of people.

It has a configurable rocker switch that can do ff/rew, vol +/-, and a play/pause/menu button. The controls are like the D2, NOT the S9 or J3. Look at the pictures of the device, there are only 2 tactile controls. I believe Kizune may have made a booboo.

And FYI: I'm The DarkSide on iaudiophile.net and Anythingbutipod.com,...I know all about what Cowon has coming up. They, sadly, are going backwards.

So that rocker switch you're referring to would be that unmarked thing on the top of the device, like in the last picture here: http://product.cowon.com/product/COWONX9/product_page_3.php ?

Because as far as I can see, there are hardware buttons on the side of the X9, but also those two unmarked things on top. Which would explain why, perhaps, Kizune got mixed up.

If i wasn't poor I might consider giving one a shot.....lol.

post #29 of 92

I am considering one.  I just don't want to be the first.  I want to hear what other people have to say first.  I need more information.

post #30 of 92

Well I was quite close, until nywytboy68 added his precisions. It's a must for me to be able to control songs flow AND volume sight unseen. I need those hardware controls, sadly... But it was very tempting for the battery life.

 

 

Btw, anyone knows what ARE those buttons on top, in complement to those on the side?
