My bad, I sort of missed that point in the post above, about the no-data cable, read that too fast. Sorry.
Still, how hard can it be to offer the choice to charge only when connected to a computer? I hardly think it would take a redesign of the whole firmware, so they're probably doing that on purpose, which escapes me.
Yes. As much as I think the Plenue sounds amazing, I also think that the main reason why it can never reach the popularity of AK or Fiio is because of a very unresponsive technical support.
Certainly this thread doesn't move very much because there is really nothing to talk about other than to say "yes it sounds good".
I still have a few bugs unresolved on the current firmware 1.1 (released 2 June 2016) and I don't expect them to be fixed at this rate, while in the meantime AK has had some huge functionality updates such as USB OTG Transport function and Tidal support, which was never part of the original features to begin with. When I reported some bugs on my AK240 (which I now sold), they fixed it within a month with a new patch.
I still love the Plenue S for what it is, and I don't regret buying it, but I also feel very distant to the actual people designing and building these things.
