I'm sticking with my s9, the j3 doesnt have external buttons and I change tracks/volume in my pocket all the time. I may upgrade to the 32gb version once the price comes down, although the zune 64 is mighty looking hot

The J3 has all the tactile buttons the S9 has. They're on the sides, not on top:

The Zune has no buttons at all. Just one stupid multi-purpose (or rather, no-purpose) thingamabob.

If Cowon get their butts into gear and give the J3 queueing playlists, it'll almost certainly be my next player.

Does anyone if the SQ of the S9 and J3 are the same or different?

Currently the price of a 8GB J3 is $10 cheaper than S9 in Australia so i'm considering it.

There's rarely any real sound difference between Cowon players, they all use more or less the same parts inside. The S9 and J3 are almost the exact same players, so I would assume they also use the same SoC and DAC chips.

my bad. that's great news though! i may have to get it once the 32gb version come out - s9 is pretty big with the leather case just for a 16gb one that I have at the moment - but it sounds great.

Zune has probably has the best pmp UI i've used - apart from creative. Its really nice although the otg playlist and song rating system sux - but zune sofware is not that bad. I wish cowon was more integrated - although its nice to just drag and drop from time to time.

Do you speak from experience?

I ask because I have a J3 with Firmware 2.03. When you open the device to view it's contents I cannot access the System folder that contains the Flash UI folder which is where Claw's UI files are supposed to go. I can't access it because it's not even visible.

From my understanding, the System folder is not visible in MTP mode, but should show up in MSC.

I tried Claw UI on my J3 (also FW ver. 2.03) and after using it briefly, I wound up on a blank screen I couldn't get out of. I had to remove the Claw UI files from the FlashUI directory to get things working again. Claw UI may need an update before working perfectly on the J3.

Does the J3 also have the 'gorillaglass' like the s9? Cause if it doesn't, I'll stick with the s9.

I own them both and like them both but do tend to favor the S9 more.

Plus the side buttons are annoying as ever.
