    Forgive my laziness for not reading through the whole thread, but is this thing as good as it appears to be? Looking at picking one up. I am currently using Apgtek Rocker but the battery life has me down on it.

    @Roboturner913,

    Honestly, depends on you & what kind of DAP you are after, as exceptional battery life & exceptional sound quality aside, some don't like the PD as it seems 'dated', eg, a DAP which doesn't act like a smartphone with all the bells & whistle features associated...

    Personally & subjectively, I like the PD even more than PD2 though the latter is my alternative in a pinch as it is essentially the same in Sound Quality. I've had the PD for 3+ years & it is still going strong.
    The only word of caution I will say is in the unlikely event anything goes wrong with the unit, make sure you have a good retailer &/or distrubutor to help liaise with Cowon as Cowon isn't know for speedy customer service.

    Hope this answers things for you, feel free to ask me more if you need.

    Hope you have a great day !

    Yeah, I don't care about phone stuff, if I need to do phone stuff I'll use my phone for that. Looking for exceptional sound quality, sound tweakability, basic good functionality (the more basic, the better tbh) and good battery life.

    gonna go ahead and order one from Amazon

    Exactly, hope it works for you.

    Be interested to know your thoughts once you had some time with it. Minimum 1 week.

    Hope you have a great day !

    With that criteria I suspect you will enjoy the PD very much @Roboturner913. I suggest searching this thread for EQ/Jet Effect settings to get an idea of what you can do with that. The user EQ presets are amazingly tweakable!

    The interface doesn't have the slickness of say a Sony, there is noticeable flicker and lag. It is entireley and suitably functional at its' job of selecting music for you to play.

    Anyone pining for bluetooth should just pick up a transmitter. I picked up BT 5.0 transmitter with around 24 hour battery life. Other than the slightly extra built i think this actually works better than players with built in BT as the usually only last for around 10 hours. This way you can just keep up with the latest BT version, maintain your battery and have great music quality.

    If only they could or others could get around to making slightly cheaper cases.

    Welp, looks like I waited too long. I didn't want to order over the Thanksgiving holiday because I wasn't home and there's been a rash of package thefts in my neighborhood. Got back home yesterday, went to order it and there's no more stock. Looks like somebody bought em all up at the $99 price and are now reselling them for $60 more. Buncha savages

    Can these DAPs log which songs were played so one can submit them to a service like last.fm?
     
  10. J Kelley
    I think not.

    Hi @arielext,

    As @J Kelley stated, that is a definite no.

    Hope you both have a great day !
