Pros: soundquality, speakers, stylish exterior
Cons: fragile
I was looking for a handy mp3 with best soundquality. I looked around and saw a couple brands i was looking into. I finally saw a youtube clip with a guy pluging in his philips Ariaz into his stereoset with an expensive amp and I could hear the quality was superb. So i looked at the price for philips gogear players and saw that I could get the cheapest model for about 1/4 price of the Muse and the Aria for 2/3. I settled on the expensive Muse hoping it had the extras and better interface with the touch screen. Costing 170 USD here. 
I got it working and it was amazingly good. The pros are the sound, the speakers that resonate perfect with the aluminium exterior giving it a high trancy tone (bassy songs and rock wont play good with this) The touch screen works fine (I will not risk taking it up when its -10 to -30celsius since even nokia phones break then). You can watch pictures and perhaps video clips (not really experimented with it). I loaded 2000-3000 pictures on the flash and I noticed it was not a good idea. On the other hand its bugy and the flash drive gets corrupt and will not play radio in the speakers. Fragile shell and I dont recommend droping it. It has survived me for a couple months which is a great feat. It still works and i have still not formated it yet. I recommend the Muse mainly for the sound, the speakers and the slideshow of pictures. It has acceptable UI, interface and batterytime. It can also record radio, I think it only records radio no dictaphone. Im using sennheiser 407 with it and Im very happy with it looking forward to test a phiaton headphone with it someday though they seem only to be sold in UK and US.
Better sound quality than the Cowon J3?
