5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection!, 23 July 2010
This review is from: Cowon i9 16GB MP3 Player - Black (Electronics)
It's been almost a month I own this device and I must say, this is far the best multimedia player I ever had. The player itself is elegant, light and very comfortable to hold in your hand. The menu is easy to use and well designed. The strongest feature of the player is the sound quality. It's amazing! Loud and crystal clear. It has 40 volume levels and over 32 you easily become deaf. From all the players in the market this is the only one, which plays the most of the audio formats (MP3 WMA OGG WAV APE FLAC) - iPod and some other players can't - and support gapless playback as well - Samsung for example can not. To copy music to the device you don't need any software, just copy and paste files to the Music library and you're done.
With the i9 you can watch videos (very nice picture quality, however the screen is a bit to small for watching movies), browse photos, read text, listen radio and record sound with the built in microphone. It also has a little speaker in the bottom, but I've never used it. The touchpad is awesome too, never had any problem with it.
The only downside is the earphones. If you want to enjoy the player's brilliant sound properly you need to purchase a better one. Apart this, everything is fine. For me this is the best mp3 player, the perfect MP3 player. It steals a march at all the others. Don't hesitate to buy it, you won't regret it ever.

I've just got s/h i9, and while mp3s transfer via drag 'n' drop successfully, FLAC files fail to show. Going into the folders via the PC USB connection clearly shows the FLAC files, but the player itself doesn't display them in its Library, and therefore certainly won't play anything FLAC. Suggestions?

I also note here that it says "40" volume settings, whereas mine is limited at 20, yet the "Settings" folder shows the USB Setting as "MSC" which is the one recommended for avoiding the dreaded EU volume limitations. Again, am I missing something?
