High Resolution sound - a new standard in listening to music

For the finest sound quality, High Resolution Audio files take music to the next level. The difference between HR (High Resolution) music and typical MP3/AAC compressed music files is immense. Hi-Res music offers a deeper and wider sound stage, more precise imaging and, above all, a far greater sense of realism.

Handles a wide range of Hi-Res and standard formats
Fitted with a top quality 24-bit/192Hz DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) the Plenue D is compatible with a wide range of files types. These include FLAC/WAV/AIFF/ALAC/APE/MP3/WMA and OGG.

Expandable storage
As standard, the Plenue D has 32GB of storage – enough for a modest music library. Thanks to the MicroSD card slot, though, this can be expanded by up to a further 128GB – enough for a pretty serious music collection.

Built-in rechargeable battery giving up to 100 hours playback
Recharge the player in around 3.5 hours and you'll have a class-leading battery life of up to 100 hours (MP3). Even with the highest quality Hi-Res files the battery life is around 51 hours – around five times better than many rivals and comparable smartphones.

Compact and stylish
Measuring just 77mm by 53mm the Plenue D easily fits the palm of your hand. The aluminium case is both strong and light – as well as giving the player a high quality feel. An easy-to-use touch screen makes navigation easy and comes as second nature after using a smartphone. Physical buttons fall easily to hand for major functions, such as volume and power.

Give your smartphone a break and hear just how much better music on the move can sound – with the award-winning Cowon Plenue D.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound for the price I brought this to transfer my DJ sets on to something that I could take around with me as I did not want to use my phone

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good while it lasted The sound is excellent, and, though the user interface is a bit clunky, the ability to tweak the sound makes up for it. However, after discovering that 32GB isn't enough storage even for my modest music collection, my attempts to install additional memory through a microSD card resulted in the device refusing to communicate with any player system, or my PC. The good news is that Richer Sounds responded to my dilemma quickly and effectively, arranged a pickup of the faulty goods, and gave me a full refund, without demur. Props to them! A pleasure doing business with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A whole new life brought back to my listening I was looking for a higher end music player as I knew i was missing so much from just streaming from my phone.Ilooked at the options and decided on this because of two things..1. The reviews its received from various websites and 2. The design.It's clean lines and understated design bely its incredible functionality and performance. It looks like something from the 1970's show Mission Impossible -it is a thing of beauty. Plenty of storage but I've added another SD card. You'll have to format the card to FAT32 and will need a small program to do that with as Windows is limited in its ability to do anything more than a low storage volume. A quick Google will come up trumps for a suitable program. The buttons are easy to use and I've bought a leather case for mine and the buttons are still accessible. Simple volume, play/pause and forward or backwards are all thatare on show. Thescreen is touch sensative and you can access menus from there, although it's a little easy to mispress an icon with big fingers. Sound quality is amazing. I've yet to put my new headphones on with it but I'm saving that treat for Christmas day. Plugged in to my Denon system (15 years old) it sounds incredible and I can SO tell the difference from MP3 to FLAC. Whilst I would not describe myself as an audiophile (whatever that really means) I can appreciate the higher sound quality and enjoy an empty house to listen to my music in. There are plenty of people with high end systems who will no doubt point out other options, but to me......this IS my high end system Purchase and enjoy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Sounds fantastic. I spent a lot of time considering what to buy before I chose this, and I know I made the right decision. Sounds great, has lots of features and yet it is small and unobtrusive. Flacs sound amazing, and it works well with the 128gb micro sd which I managed to format easily using the guiformat method suggested in the Cowan booklet. would recommend to anyone looking fir something in this price range. Also complemented this item with a pair of earphones which I got from Richer Sounds, sent post free, for £20 less than Amazon.
