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

 

 

 

 

 

Physical Buttons:  power/hold, ff, rew, play/pause, vol+, vol-, from here

 

 

Same as the J3 actually.

That's what I thought, but apparently there's been a dissenting voice above, so I don't really know...

I'll stick with my X7. Still loving it and 160gb and still room after 2 years.

I asked ExportPrive to confirm, or not, whether the thing does have the physical controls listed, here's the answer:

 

"Dear Customer, We confirm the Cowon X9 has those physical controls."

 
Maybe I'll try it after all.
 
Edit: bit the bullet and ordered one. We'll see what gives.

Looking forward to your review!

Good news, it would be nice to get a first hand review on this.  I am seriously considering one.

Lol!!! Ok, friend, we shall eventually see if there's been a booboo or not. But, I still refuse to get it because I hate having to jump through hoops to get my playlists working on a flash based Cowon. The X7 is said to be easier to cooperate in this area. I passed on THAT due to the horrid resistive screen,...with it's lowwwwwww resolution. I guess I'll just deal with my iPod touch and PRAY Cowon eventually hits us up with a decent screened 64gb player that does a dog gone playlist right,...sigh,... frown.gif

Just received and unpacked the thing. Will give impressions in the coming days. First impression though is that it feels very solid, and it's surprisingly heavy in hand.

 

So much for the so-called expert, btw: it does have the exact same physical controls as the J3. Nuff said.

 

Later.

cool looking forward to it

One thing I can say now is that the sound is rigorously identical to J3. No difference (which I take as good news). Guys, I'm quite bad at writing reviews, so you'd better ask about things you'd want to know, and I'll answer as I can...

How responsive is the screen to touch, and how easy is it to navigate the menus?

post #44 of 92

The screen seems to be a tad less responsive than the J3, but I haven't calibrated it yet or anything. Still it doesn't glide as well as the J3. Menu structure is exactly the same as far as I can see.

 

Edit: I confirm the screen is rather ****ty to use, and might very well put off some of you. The scrolling is rather miserable.

How does the fm radio record feature work?  how about the line in?   I read somewhere that some cowons don't work with windows 7, does the X9?  Is the screen as responsive as the D2+.
