Yeah I think they ****ed up on storage, personally. It was a common gripe in the original Plenue D thread. I'm looking to buy a new DAP because I want extra storage. Balanced out and extra storage capacity were the big drawbacks of the Plenue D, for me. Balanced out has been addressed but they need to up their game regarding storage.

DSD I honestly couldn't care less about. It looks like the battery is replaceable judging from the bumph below, so that's a plus.

All in all it comes down to how good it sounds, I guess. I may end up buying it if it sounds good, never say never. If it sounds significantly better than the original D I might forgive the storage thing.

One of the selectable digital filters is 'NOS'. That's nice to see on a DAP. I use it on all my iFi pieces and my RME ADI2-DAC.

That storage limit is the showstopper though. I'm enjoying my Shanling M0 (with 256GB) and following the FiiO M9 and Shanling M5s threads to see how they pan out.

Looks like JetAudio has removed the original PD from Amazon. It was just there this morning in both colors. May be getting ready to release the new model in the US.

Even a Google search didn't show any significant info regarding purchase. I thought it was to have been released a day or so ago.

JetAudio (Cowons official US distributor) confirmed that the original is just out of stock, and they will have more in a couple of days. They also said they will have the new D2 in stock "soon".

Whoa. 4.0 vrms balanced? That's an enormous step up in power which puts it into plenue L territory..... I have a plenue 2 on the way that outputs 2 vrms balanced, on sale from jet for $799.


Might be sending that back.

Wished this would sound as detailed as the PM2 and P2. Im using those along with Cayin N8 every week. I prefer these daps over all the A&K, Lotoo, Sony daps. The one thing I didnt like about the PD was rhe lack of details.

Once apon a time, Cowon used to think battery life was important.

So far it's looking like a downgrade from my D1. Hope the UI is responsive at launch this time.

The PD has such great battery life because it uses a very low powered amp. The fact that the PD2 can output quadruple the power as the PD and still manage 45 hours is outstanding. Puts the competition to shame, who struggle to make it over 10 hours on average.
