Default How Many will Skip S9 for the J3?

http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...ad.php?t=51641

I was about to pull the trigger on the s9 then I ran across the j3 it offers everything the S9 does in a smaller case, with WiFi and external speak.
Here’s a link with some pictures.

You forgot the big kicker, the microSDHC card slot that -should- support up to 32 GB microSDHC cards.

The J3 also supports S9 UCIs, has the S9's beautiful AMOLED screen, etc etc.

I probably will not skip the S9, but rather skip the J3. The UK and later US release (UK release looks to be before mid summer) the S9's price should take a slight decline. If the 8GB model slips into the $100-$125 range I'd definitely get that over the ridiculously expensive J3.

(mark 1 skip J3 instead of skip S9)

it's not ridiculously expensive. they're selling it less than the S9 in korea for some reason.

The S9 has Claw's UI, the J3 most likely has all of Cowon's usual UI flaws and shortcomings... it could change, but developers like Claw are few and far in between. That's just my $0.02, what's important for me. But yeah, the J3's housing sure looks less tacky (at least in photos), and an SD slot is good to have - but other than that there's not really any difference between the two.

I have a feeling hat claw and dnw will quickly buy a j3 and start developing there. So we'll be stuck here all along with the s9...let's hope that the ucis are cross-compatible. I know that the i9 ucis work on the s9. just crappily

you can just place claw's UI in the J3. it'll work perfectly fine.

i think you should visit: http://www.iaudiophile.net/forums/sh...ad.php?t=35836
all S9 UCIs are compatible with the J3. so whether or not dnw and claw works on the S9 continuously, it'll still be a plus for J3 owners.

When they add ReplayGain support, or the like, then I'll consider it......I know that I would love the sound I could get. But I shuffle often enough that I don't want to have to keep hitting the volume up and down.

I got three players now that let me shuffle in peace....and now I am spoiled by that capability.

I would get the S9, it's been perfected and has the same audio quality and a awesome screen.

Without a 32GB model, I would have skipped it. I know you can expand the memory, and that adds a lot of value for me, but I don't want to have split my music collection across internal storage and external storage.

for me there had to be either a 64gb version, or a 32gb version and 32gb sd-cards had to get cheaper.

I love the J3 design better and I will consider *upgrading* from my S9 if the bluetooth audio quality is improved and has additional profiles. And if using the expansion slot does not significantly affect the battery life

If the J3 has the awesome S9 EQ and sound quality, I'll probably upgrade to it when it comes out in the US - that is, if it's 100% compatible with S9 UCIs.

Would music on the SD card be scrobbled a la MTP mode? If so its a definate swap for me.

Anyone know if the flash player will be any better? I find the one on the S9 completely useless - every game I've ever tried has either crashed or lagged so hard as to be unplayable.

Assuming a better flash player and equal or better sound quality with the S9, and I might make the upgrade, if I have the cash.

I never found the claw UI particular useful (no offense to claw - I know he's done some great work here that I could never do, but I just don't know what to do with the thing), so that's not a big problem for me, though I do like a lot of the other UI's, but if, as some are saying, they will work fine on the J3, that might be a moot point.
