Default Looking for sound of Cowon /combined with usefullness of Ipod Touch

Hi there - I loved the sound of my Cowon D2,,, - but I was excited by the idea of downloading apps, having seen friends with their apple devices... I bought a secondhand Ipod Touch. which is great because it can control my Sonos music system / link with my Spotify premium account / stream live tv/ allow me to read my ibooks etc etc

But - it doesn't sound very good!!!

So please help - does my ideal device exist?

Help / advice appreciated...

The Touch has really good analog bits. If you want DSP effects like some of the Cowon players have, you can probably download them from the app store.

Get an app from the App Store on an iPod touch. The sq is equal to any Cowon. SonicMax Pro has the BBE enhancements, and there's the EQu or Equalizer apps for excellent sound adjustments.

Gary, there are various apps that can be downloaded that can emulate the sound of the J3, especially SonicMax's BBE app. Please read this thread:
It emulates most of the setings for BBE, and sounds pretty much like he Cowon players. There's also EQU and the Equilizer app, which gives you complete control of the audio spectrum.
Cowon X7 160GB - iRiver H320 - IPod Classic 160GB - iPod 5.5G 80GB - Sansa Clip Plus 4GB - Original Sansa Clip 2GB
