I prefer the P1 over the 100R sound wise, - I haven't used it with an amp,

Hi,
I had ordered my cowon P1 from amazon in US and got it delivered. I am waiting for someone to carry it to India from US. I checked amazon US and there are few of them still in stock at amazon at 399 US. Sold by Jet Audio and amazon fulfilled. I havent tried the device yet. Guess connieflyer bought from same dealer. Posting in case someone is interested.

Simply put it next to the folders (not in the "system" folder)

So, I love this player, but I wonder what the possible battery replacement solutions are. I can feel that it is not lasting as long as long as it should; I don't want to trash it, as it's in great condition..

I would try to contact Cowon and see if you can RMA for a battery replacement. I did it with an older player I had 10 years ago. Came back with new life in it. I don't know what costs would be involved but unless something changed I think they would do it.

I'm waiting for a reply from cowon for exactly this. Annoyingly the relatively new laws on shipping lithium batteries means that the UK Cowon service guys at AMP3 no longer offer a battery replacement service. I'm hoping that if I can identify a 3rd party battery I'll be able to replace it myself.
