Default Where to purchase iAudio7 ?

Hi there!
Well, the title says most of the story.

I managed to find an i7 (advertised and packaged as new) on eBay.com in January.
However, it suffered straightaway from a battery-related issue that drove me crazy (I got 5 hours of playback out of it, with a battery indicator jumping all over the place). I finally sent it back to Cowon, who just replied to me:

Despite all the frustration caused by this issue, I really loved this gem of a player. The sound in particular was splendid, I worked brilliantly with my Sennheiser PXC-350 headphones.

By any chance, would any of you guys have any idea where I could find another i7? I searched left, right and center but couldn't find even a used unit.

Thanks in advance,
Guillaume.

I'm sorry to hear that man, I actually had the same problem with the battery thing and had to send it in multiple times. . . That's really not cool of Cowon to not be able to fix it if it's still under warranty. Maybe you should ask for an i9 instead? Surely they have an obligation to replace it with something if it's defective . . .

Sad to hear of your misfortune as I still love my iaudio 7, you might try to post a WTB thread on iaudiophile, headfi and here in our Classifieds forum.

They stopped making them about a year ago, unless you can find a refurb or someone willing to part with theirs ...

Looks like you can buy Iaudio7 from this site. 8gb and 4gb.

At $196.99 for 8GB I'd pass.

Hi guys,
I know it's a late thread bump but I just forgot to reply to you! Well, it happens... Sorry.

It looks like I'm having a love-hate relationship with Cowon players. There was that i7 I mentioned earlier (well, 6 months ago). I really loved it, but he didn't love me in return and basically died after a few months. As the i7 was discontinued and I got mine from ebay, I wasn't actually covered by any warranty.
I got an i9 as replacement. That's a cool unit too! But of course, things couldn't be smooth either ... This one jumped in the washer for a full warm cycle! I thought I was kind and loving enough, but I was mistaken. The patient is still in intensive care (water in the display is hardly a good sign) but vital functions seem OK.

I'll see how it goes with the de-moisturizing and might consider another i9 or an i10. I've seen ownta.com's i7s, but 200 quid for a discontinued 8GB player isn't a bargain, regardless of its awesomeness.

Stay tuned, for those of you who care!
