    Currently I mainly use the Andromeda, Jupiter and Nova from campfire audio. The dx80, r and dx90. Something in that price range I guess.

    For my personal taste, warmer sig of dx80 might pair up better with Andromeda, making it smoother and more organic. But hissing going to be noticeable. PR gives you more flexibility to fine tune the sound with dsp effects. Also, keep in mind that dx120 is around the corner and it could be on par with PR.

    I have received the R and will try and post a review sometime in the coming weeks, note that I'm not an expert and don't own top equipment. Also note that I might lack the terminology for proper sound description. The main headphones I use are the Sennheiser hd25-1 II and Meelec Pinnacle P1. Lastly I don't have any other players to directly compare it, in The past I've owned: Sony NWA3000 -> Cowon D2 -> Cowon D2+ -> Ibasso DX50 -> Cowon Plenue D. Every 'upgrade' so far was a noticable step up in quality for me exept for the transition from DX50 to Plenue D.

    The Plenue R however really exceeded my expectations and I immensely enjoy it's sound. I have Always been a bit sceptical when it came to these high resolution players and whether they were worth the price but the level of detail without sounding tiring is really a new level of quality that I have not encountered before and I guarantee that if you have th emoney and enjoy high quality audio you will defenitely be satisfied with the Plenue R.

    I'll keep you guys updated!

    @twister6 , Not sure if anyone have ask this before. But here I goes,
    Would you consider the R superior to the Opus thebit #1 ? (Mainly balance setup)
    I know sound is subjective. But would like to know how does it fare against each other so I could get a fare idea of how it sounds at the very least.
    Thanks in advance :)

    Without a doubt PR is superior to the original #1, but then, Opus#1 is discontinued and they releasing Opus#1S, though will have to see how it compares when available.
