    Great find :)
    Cowon is always working on a new music player.

    They have finally moved from the dark side and used a USB-C

    is this the first cowon dap that has bluetooth?
  6. Nayparm
    The first Plenue R had bluetooth also.

    USB-C :astonished: R2 & D2. I sense their engineers are Star Wars geeks h1504.gif

    I'll definitely buy a Cowon 'Death Star' if they release one:grinning:

    Is that good ?
  12. Nayparm
    Depends on the implementation, Cayin N8, N6ii, PL, P2, P2mkii, LPGT all use them in various quantities and also lower end gear like fiio m9 etc

    I guess most people will choose P2 over this since the price difference is less than 100 bucks in US

    I will go for the R2. Been waiting for this one. Battery life and Cowon EQ are the most important things to me. Already purchased the plenue R case (half price due to open box on advancedmp3) as its exact same dimensions. Expect this will cost around £550.

    P2 is Cowon Plenue 2 which is 600 usd on Amazon. https://smile.amazon.com/Cowon-P2-128IS-Plenue-Player-Imperial/dp/B071RM41RF/ref=sr_1_4?crid=3SLPC0ZSZ68EC&keywords=cowon+plenue+2&qid=1572108353&sprefix=cowon+pl,aps,154&sr=8-4

    Also, It comes with a leather case but no bluetooth
