    Anyone know if its possible to connect plenue micro USB out to my external DAC/amp? I don't use optical...

    I don't believe there is digital out. Instead, you can use it as DAC/amp.

    Your post shocked me for second there. I guess what you meant was 'it can't do digital out via USB'. This would be one amazing device to be used as a source for DAC/Amps like Mojo or Hugo. With its splendid UI and EQ, this device is on my radar as my ideal source/transport, as I have plans of buying a Hugo 2.

    For people on the same boat as mine and are Hi-Res and DSD users, I should add that the optical digital output has its limitation when it comes to very high sampling rates.

    This model has 17Hrs of battery life. And plus it has bluetooth, so that I can play wirelessly on my Bose Soundlink speakers.

    I don't mean discontinuing current Plenue D but the possible release of a Plenue D2 or MK II or whatever since the Plenue D is getting pretty old now (released 2015)
  12. bluedolphin
    Oh ok, What would you like to see improved?
    I personaly like Cowon Plenue D as it is, if is updated i hope it will have same size, i have like 4 Leather cases for the current one

    I'm hoping to pick up a Plenue R soon as I've always enjoyed the 'Cowon' sound from my old Plenue 1, which I miss. I liked the Plenue 1 better than the AK 120ii. I'm wondering if the Plenue R will sound better than my current Onkyo DP-X1a which sounds pretty decent.

    The Plenue 1 is only $400 now, if you don't need all the extra features.

    Mainly the addition of AptX bluetooth but also slighly more responsive operation and better sound quality. I am a purist and like listening to music without manipulation via sound enhancements. The Plenue D requires to much customization of sound features to actually sound good to me. I am looking at the Sony A45 as my next DAP for that very reason plus of course AptX HD bluetooth.
