Cowon Plenue P1 review

 

A refined music player for the hi-fi purist...

Refined, authoritative presentation ; Plenty of insight ; Fluid dynamics ; Solid build ; Extensive file compatibility

Relaxed sound might not suit all tastes ; Bewildering choice of EQ settings

The Plenue P1 is a likeable performer that, while pricey, delivers an immensely enjoyable sound

The MP3 player is dead. Long live the MP3 player. Fifteen years ago it seemed like this humble gadget heralded a new age, and while it did shine brightly for a time, the dedicated portable music player has been in its death throes for much longer. Even...

The Cowon Plenue 1 looks and sounds like a premium player with incredible build quality and nuanced sound. The player offers wide file support including FLAC, DSD and ripped SACDs. It comes with 128GB of memory standard and can be expanded up to 256GB....

The buttons are easily activated by accident, even with the lock button on, and lack tactile aids. No streaming support with no networking or third-party apps. Short 8-hour battery life.

​If you're looking for a no-nonsense, great-sounding player the Cowon Plenue 1 is pretty hard to beat.

Обзор Hi-Fi плеера Cowon PLENUE 1: Любителям качественного звука

 

Время течет, все меняется. Пару лет назад от портативного плеера добиться качественного проработанного звучания было задачей нетривиальной, и ценителям качественного аудио по большей части оставалось довольствоваться лишь своими домашними системами....

Музыкальный плеер класса Hi-Fi, оснащенный ЦАП Burr-Brown PCM1792A, имеет продуманный дизайн и простое управление с множеством настроек. Несмотря на небольшие размеры и массу аппарат способен удивить качественным звучанием любителей портативного аудио.
