Cowon Plenue P1 - Page 18

post #256 of 2471

I am also glad that no Andriod is used, no useless feature set taking up space and slowing down the player.

On the Cowon page is says Embedded Linux, strange way to phrase it.

Maybe it is some real-time distribution. If you want to seriously fight that "jitter", you need to have the right OS for it. Kernel, drivers and thr playrr itself must be programmed differently. I believe there is an "audiphile"-Linux somewhere available.

But I do believe streaming is the future with 4G and/or wimax coverage more and more complete... there will be a market for android player with better DAC and AMP than our cellphones. Was hoping zx1's success will prompt more entry in this space!

I am looking at the subject from other way. I prefer very high capacity players that don't need any connection. I load my songs into it and I listen to it. No internet connection or something.

 

I am looking forward to see who will bring mSATAs in daps ;)

It runs Embedded linux. Witch means its stripped down to only include the essentials. And made to be good at the one thing its designed to do. In this case, play music.

PS Android is pretty far from linux these days.

Technically Android is a form of linux. While most custom OSs tend to be based off of 'embedded linux' code (or something in the form I've heard.) :D

 

but I suppose this is a good thing since they can't seem to wrap their heads around getting android to work properly.

 

I wanna see Cowon do good, and technically it appears they are more than set to take on their target in a meaningful way, however yet again I will be cheering from the sidelines as this only vaguely resonates with my being :p

And I do hear android now only someone would tack on a real DAC and worthwhile ampstage to it I'd be set. bleh............. Uh ,,er. I mean YAY COWON!!!!!! :atsmile:

Yes Yes and Yes. Either it's a phone or it plays music very well. Are you listening Sony.

I want an audiophile player but not something that won't last me an overseas flight. I'm stuck with my J3 then? :/

you could do much worse than a J3

how good is the SQ when you have all that ambient airplane noise?


I know I could do much worse! But I've had it for 3 years now and I was just wondering if I should change it. Given how the Plenue P1 turned out, I guess I'm keeping it.

The battery life is a major disappointment... I don't see the point of going to a dedicated linux OS if it's to get such abysmal battery optimisation to be honest...If the goal was to a top audio player, then battery life should have been a key focus - especially at that price!!!!
