Absolutely no idea but will try almost for sure.

I was willing to try too but that pricing leaves no possibility to me. It is not like they bring balanced outputs or something. I don't get it, are they trying to be a second iRiver or what...

It is still cheaper than AK240 and also offers 256 GB of total storage including external storage. It also has optical/spdif out so I honestly looking forward to this, Cowon has a strong reputation behind it and I am sure it will do a fine job. 

 

Based on the pictures I've seem from the UI it looks really clean.

 

I am sure Cowon has put all they got into it, it is their come back into the DAP world.

Hopefully that's mis-information?
Don't get me wrong, I'm fond of Cowon, and wish them great wealth.
But, there's no way on God's good earth that I'll be paying anything LIKE that kind of money for a DAP.

Good luck to any that can afford it though.

It'll most likely be more than $1,000. So I think you can forget about this DAP smily_headphones1.gif

No. This is where the estimate came from:

 コウォンP1 24日発売!約12万5千円!

 

That's 125,000 Yen, so either it'll be $1199 or $1299.

In one of the facebook posts, it said around 125,000Yen so thats about right
Now just sit back to see if it can compete with AK120II and Calyx M

It is a norm now if they want to be taken seriously

Tom, based on your technical knowledge a few lightyears ahead of mine, what do these specs tell you?
post #207 of 2554
Damn.

Oh well, my fingers will remain crossed for another cheaper model from Cowon.
:-(
Maybe Oppo,Sony or someone like that will release an 'audiophile' cellphone, I'd pay north of a grand for a good example of that, but I can't see Cowon attempting one.

Cowon pricing believe or not is very fair if they perform as good as those numbers are infact true.

 

AK products are selling like hot-cake so Cowon pricing is not too far fetched crazy.

Uh, well, I can say that it outdoes the both the AK120 II and AK240 in specs published (it's obvious Cowon was gunning for iRiver, posting specs that are just that tiny bit better)... but of course, it's difficult to tell what sounds better/best. We don't know what Cowon is using for I/V conversion and LPF, as well as gain stage and current buffering --- whether it's opamp-based or discrete like iRiver. Personally, I prefer the "sound" of a Burr-Brown chip to a Cirrus Logic chip (even with two), but it's difficult to make an assessment on sound quality this way. Getting to 120 dB(A) SNR is impressive, so it points to clean power rails and proper decoupling. Who knows how that translates to SQ, though.

 

All three units --- the AK120 II, AK240, P1 --- output ~2 Vrms to its outputs, so power delivery should be similar. Actually, iRiver is publishing identical performance specifications for both the AK120 II and AK240; I don't know whether it means the internals are identical or what.

Thanks a lot!
