OK, so my Cowon S9 power button has broken. Again. This time, the only company in the UK with an agreement with Cowon say they can't supply the button on it's own (like they did last year) and I'm not paying £50 for them to do a 2 minute job with a £10 button, so it's NEW RIG TIME.
Really not sure what to go for. I see a lot of you guys use a DAP and amp. Is this the best option for me?
Also looked at the Sandisk, Cowon, Sony, iBasso models... really not sure where to go from here. Any help is most appreciated!
I'll be happy to spend £150 (250 dollars) but not all the same gear is available where I am, in the UK.
