Cowon Plenue M 64GB DAC HI-DEF Player Titanium Silver
Clean & Distinct HD Sound
As an effort to present the real pleasure to music lovers, COWON made its world-class sound device, PLENUE 1, debut thanks to its proprietary acoustic technologoy that has been accumulated for 20 years. Now, COWON is launching another device, PLENUE M that flavours a different sound taste from PLENUE 1, still maintaining the best sound quality. PLENUE M used Burr-Brown PCM 1795, 24bit/192kHz Stereo DAC, of high-class audio devices, which attains a remarkable level of SNR, THD+N and Crosstalk combined with COWON's engineering technology. PLENUE M can allow you to listen to music as audio artists and engineers intended. Please experience the original sound of all music with PLENUE M that presents the best sound to all walks of life.
The Best Sound Performance for HD Sound
SNR 120dB, THD+N 0.0007%, Crosstalk -132dB
'PLENUE M' is proud to introduce the best performance figures for listening to HD Sound. It has the highest performance figures even among first-tier devices in the category. Specifications such as SNR(120dB), THD+N(0.0007%), Crosstalk(-132dB) are the most important criteria in acoustic devices. Also, the device has outstanding output power (2rms) to support high impedence Hi-Fi headphones without the need for a seperate headphone amplifiers. By adapting a high precision TCXO and exceptional Phase Jitter of 1.0ps, PLENUE M can perform flawlessly under any circumstances.
High SNR, Indespensible Element for HD Sound
When we hear music, acoustic signal picks up unavoidable noises as the signal processes to the output, the process leads to distortion on the original signal. This phenomenon can be expressed as a numerical value SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio). SNR compares the level of a desired signal to the level of background noise. It is one of the key criteria that can be measured to compare acoustic performances between one to another.
If there is a difference of 6dB between the two devices, there is a difference of 1 quantization bit in digital signal. For example, the device with 113dB has a loss of more that quantization bit in digital signal, which leads to twice the amplitude resolution difference comparing to PLENUE M with 120dB.
Therefore, to fully enjoy the HD Sound, a device must have excellent SNR figures. Having a poor SNR or THD means the device performs imperfect reproduction of the 24bit source, so there is no difference between playing 24bit source and 16bit source. COWON processed through intensive research and developement period to archive the best SNR, THD etc. PLENUE M covers from basic specifications to advanced ones offering enhanced enjoyment of listening HD Sound to users.
True Original Sound
24bit/192kHz High Resolution
24bit/192kHz source recorded in studio provides the best sound, it has no signal loss and has outstanding resolution. Enjoy a true HD Sound using the PLENUE M that plays artist and engineer's intended sound without missing a single detail.
Implemented Burr-Brown PCM1795 DAC
Heart of PLENUE M, Worlds Finest Audio DAC
Implementing Burr-Brown's luxurious DAC, PCM1795, used in high end premium products, the device expresses the best possible sound. PCM1795 is the worlds finest high perfoemance Audio DAC that fully supports DSD, as well as 24bit/192kHz PCM. PLENUE M uses PCM1795 to play nature sound of the actual music.
Tune the Physical Limitations of Time and Space
Even in original sound, speakers and headphones tend to physically delay high frequency range compare to low frequency range. JetEffect 7 upgraded from JetEffect 5 gives more powerful perfoemance. It provides 10 bands equalizer and Eq filter, which allows useres to adjust detailed acoustic frequency bands depending on their tastes. Enjoy optimum sound under any circumstances with newly added Chorus and various 66 presets.
Enjoying HD Sound through PC
Not going through the PC Sound card that generates some noises, PLENUE M supports USB DAC function with which you can use PLENUE M as an external sound card connecting with the PC. When audio files on PC are played, PLENUE M converts them into distinct and clear sound, so that you can enjoy the HD sound of PLENUE M without moving music files into PLENUE M.
Supports up to 192GB of Memory
Since high-quality sound files recorded in studio are not compressed to preserve all the information, the High-fidelity audio device requires a large amount of storage space. PLENUE M comes with a 64GB high-speed internal memory, which is large enough to facilitate high-quality audio files. In addition, the storage capacity of the device can be extended up to 192GB by adding 128GB microSD card to its slot.
