Eh...Cowon let me down there.

I'd much rather get the ZX1 in that case. I like its sound more than the AK120 and it's a whopping $400 less.

Damn, that is mucho dinero. My fanboyism is shaken to the ground and is about to perish.

How can I bring myself, not to buy a ZX1 aiaiaiaiiii dios mio

If that's accurate I too have lost interest :-(

I'm not saying that the P1 won't be worth that much, as I've clearly never seen/heard one, but that much money is definitely out of my price range regardless of the competence of the DAP.

And so It begins. Astell & Kern's aggressive pricing reflecting back onto the consumer DAP market.

I seriously hope that it´s not going to be THAT expensive, mostly because they never had products so ridiculously priced. It´s just like a brand of "normal" cars like Hyundai suddenly releases a new car that wants to compete with Lamborghini and Ferrari.

When iRiver did it, they at least made up a new name.....

Now let's see if this player recycles any parts from their players of 4 or 5 years ago, like they have done so often in the past......

Maybe that taobao preorder guy just is just trying to make some money, by ultra-over-pricing the preorder price.

I could live nicely with the ZX1 pricerange.

If they bring something like AK pricing, they will lose a lot of customers. Many people would prefer ZX1 over P1.

Its unlikely less than 1K usd, i think
P2 will be 2K+ usd..LoL
post #179 of 2580

... and it would have to be very very good to compete with the iBasso DX90. Different markets I guess - the pics of the P1 are certainly sexy, but if sound is your major requirement the DX90 is hard to beat on value for money.
