COWON PR-128PS overview

  • 1Description

The robust and angular body of the Cowon Plenue R 128GB Portable High-Resolution Audio Player is constructed from CNC-machined, high-strength anodized aluminum, and houses sophisticated audio reproduction technology. At its core is the Texas Instruments PCM5242 DAC and SoundPlus amplifier, which are engineered to reproduce 24-bit/192 kHz, DSD, and DXD audio sources, and drive them through your favorite high-end headphones with high impedance, without the need of a separate amp. It sports a 3.5mm headphone and optical output, as well as a 2.5mm balanced headphone connector. The balanced output eliminates transmission noise by adding "out of phase" signals to reproduce clearer and crisper original sound.

The Plenue R provides an ample 128GB of storage for your high-resolution audio files, and even gives you the ability to expand that with an (optional) microSD card (up to 256GB). Controlling audio settings and playback can be done on the built-in 3.7" AMOLED touch display, or you can utilize physical side buttons that operate power, volume, playback, and search. When playing your audio files, the color-changing LED indicator lets you know the type you're listening to at a glance, such as normal audio, HD, or DSD/DXD sound.

There's not much your Plenue R can't play. When adding files, you will enjoy support for DXD, DSD, FLAC, AIFF, OGG, MP3, and much more. The built-in rechargeable 3000mAh LiPo battery provides up to 17 hours of playback, and you can choose to playback files wirelessly with Bluetooth technology. The Plenue R supports the Qualcomm aptX audio codec, which provides high compression efficiency so you can still have a superb audio experience whether you're tethered or not.

JetEffect 7 Sound Control

BBE+: High-definition effects to sharpen sound (phase correction)
Mach3Bass: Bass booster to enhance super low-end bass
3D Surround: Three-dimensional sound for an enhanced sense of space
MP Enhance: Compensates lost sound segments
Chorus Mode: 8 different sound effects that enrich your audio (Chorus 1/2/3, Unison 1/2, and Flange 1/2/3)
Reverb Mode: 9 different sound effects for enhanced realism (Chamber, Room, Club, Hall, Auditorium, Cathedral, Stadium, Canyon, and Long)
Four Premium DAC Filters
Normal, low latency, high attenuation, and asymmetric FIR DAC filters are provided to let you fine tune your audio and implement transient signal responses.
Customizable GUI
High-resolution album art, matrix browser, six sophisticated player skins, and three level meter skins all combine to provide different visual looks to your display. In addition, A variety of GUIs can be created through a UCI environment that lets you customize different interface layouts.
TCXO (Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator)
TCXO is designed to minimize the difference in sampling rates due to the change in temperature, providing phase jitter of 1.0ps.
Codec Support
The Plenue R supports the following audio codes: AIFF, FLAC, APE, WAV, MP3, WA, TTA, DXD (352.8/384 kHz), and DSD128 (5.64 MHz)
140-Level Volume Control
