    JetEffect 7 vs JetEffect 5 in PD.

    Looks like 2.5mm TRRS balanced and 3.5mm TRS SE output.

    UI looks the same as on my P2.

    I'm guessing pricing is $400 - $500.

    Looks like a very capable budget oriented DAP. Not the highest end DAC, but JetEffect 7 dsp effects can compensate for that. Not quite the battery life of PD, but better than other models. Includes balanced output, and finally an introduction of Bluetooth (I have a feeling we might see BT in other Plenue models soon). Probably going to be priced between PD and PM2, just my guess.

    Longer playing time 17 hours of music playback

    "Low-power circuit design and high-efficiency battery-17 hours of continuous MP3 playback (128kbps), and
    high-quality sound source (24bit, 96kHz, FLAC) and even up to 16 hours of continuous playback is possible
    to admire the music to R PLENUE."

    128 gig internal AND microsd slot, nice. Just hope it has bookmarking of some description (doubt it), oh and gapless out the box would be nice.

    Any news about price?

    Cowon has done gapless for longer than any other brand, so I wouldn't worry.

    As for the 128Gb + 1 slot, it is just... the same as in 3 the previous DAPs. Cowon has always had this nasty habit of recycling parts ad nauseum...
    Only a sub-600$ pricetag would make this competitive, otherwise these is just Plenue 1/M2 with a balanced output and more autonomy...

    From a news release on Cowon's site:

    ' PLENUE R ' is scheduled for release in July, and the price is 599,000 won (128GB).

    Using XE.com this is US$535

    Also on Cowon's site in a news article where I found the above date and price there is a report on the PotaFes show amongst it is a picture of Plenue X40 IEM's ?

    Watch that become £535! If I'm wrong I'll stick my hands up but I doubt it somehow...

    Quad-BA, three-way crossover.

    Google translator says it's still in prototype stadium; smooth and warm tonality.
