Post some pics of your plenue rs
My PR arrived today Been trialling it out, doing some comparisons with my Plenue M.
First up, the PR is bit lighter, and slightly shorter. The screen actually seems brighter and a bit more vivid - hasn't come out so well in the picture. On the one hand there is a screen protector on the Plenue M, but it seems like the difference is too large to just be a screen protector effect (I could check later once the screen protector for the PR arrives).
The PR sounds a bit brighter and more detailed than the M. In contrast the M has a sound which seems a bit further back, like it's more distant or veiled. Hard to put into words, but I can hear extra little details with the PR that makes the listening experience a bit more vivid and intimate. Of course it all depends on personal perception and some people might like the M sound better if they tried them side by side, the M could be said to have slightly more body in the lower mids and a smoother analogue-type sound, compared to a slightly clearer sound with the PR. Overall, they're definitely variations on a similar theme and are birds of a feather, but the difference is noticeable. In all, it's all about the sound for me and I'm happy - it's exactly the difference I was looking for, the M just left me wanting a bit more!
The PR has a slight lag in the USB DAC function. Maybe not as much lag as the M, but lag is lag so neither DAP could be used to watch video, music only for these on USB DAC function.
I haven't tried the Bluetooth function as I don't own anything Bluetooth (I'll use it when in other people's houses/cars though), and haven't got any headphones with balanced cables yet (looking to pair with some Meze 99 classics in the near future).
Build-wise, the PR feels great, it really is a well made product and feels built to last with a touch class. Database scanning only takes about 5 seconds for me, with approx 100 GB of music, so even though it happens at each start up, it's never bothered me (same with Plenue M). I'm also glad the PR has the same responsive custom JetEffect settings that I'd experienced on the Plenue D and 1 - the Plenue M is almost only suitable for preset JetEffects, as the custom changes are sluggish in comparison. The rubber back on the PR grips the tabletop a bit when laid flat, so it's got a bit more resistance to accidentally pushing it around. I'm not really sure if I'll end up using the multi-function button much - the UI is so quick and easy to navigate anyway, the options for the multi-function only skip out maybe one touch.
Overall, I'm impressed
