The World's Best Audio Quality
SNR 128dB, THD+N 0.0004%, Balanced Output 4.05Vrms
The amazing specifications of the PLENUE L include SNR 128dB, THD+N 0.0004%, Stereo Crosstalk -144dB,
and Balanced Output 4.05Vrms which are the result of our decades of audio experience and passion for perfection.
The PLENUE L was created through our relentless effort to deliver perfect sound quality to listeners anytime and anywhere.
SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio)SNR, or signal-to-noise ratio, is a measurement for indicating how much noise is mixed into an audio signal. A high SNR value means a clearer, noise-free original studio sound.128dB
Stereo CrosstalkStereo crosstalk indicates the degree of interference between left and right channels caused by electromagnetic induction. A low stereo crosstalk value means less inter-channel interference for a clear separation of left and right channels.
THD+N (Total Harmonic Distortion+Noise)THD+N is an indicator of signal distortion caused by various factors, including harmonics. A small THD+N value means a reduced occurrence of harmonic distortion on an audio device.
Dual TCXOThe ultra high precision clock precisely matches the 44.1kHz and 48kHz series sound.
Faithful to Original Sound
Support Native DSD up to DSD256
DSD(Direct Stream Digital) is a high quality Super Audio CD format that processes signals at 2.8224MHz per bit. The technology carries the maximum sound information possible to reproduce the delicate and crisp sound of analog. To realize the best possible sound quality, the PLENUE L reproduces DSD in Native method without PCM conversion and supports DSD256(Quad rate DSD), the highest frequency among all DSD formats.
256 GB of High-Speed Storage to Tackle
All High-Quality Sound Sources
32bit HD audio files and ultra-high-quality sound formats such as DXD and DSD typically require a large amount of storage space at more than 200 MB per song. The PLENUE L provides 256 GB of high-speed storage and supports microSD cards up to 256 GB, making it ideal for storing high-quality, high-volume sound sources.
High-Gloss, High-Strength Hybrid Metal Alloy
Micro Polish Alloy Metal
The PLENUE L boasts a hybrid metal alloy body reinforced with high-strength materials and heat treatment that is precision-machined via CNC. Its high-gloss finish, a visualization of the magnificent sound of brass instruments, is realized through experts in special micro-polishing (buffing) and anodizing to match the high sound quality with equally premium materials.
High-Performance SoundPlus Amplifier for Sound Perfection
One requirement for achieving perfect sound is a high-performance amplifier that is optimally compatible with high-end receivers. Texas Instruments' high-performance SoundPlus amplifier delivers high voltage while maintaining the highest level of linearity—a significant step up in audio technologies from existing versions of amplifiers. With a maximum output of 4.05Vrms, the amplifier generates powerful performance capable of driving high-end headphones with high impedance without the need for a separate headphone amplifier. Now, sophisticated and precise sound tuning makes it possible to clearly express any frequency range in combination with a variety of receivers.
Dual TCXOUltra-Precise Dual TCXO Clock for Perfect Accuracy
44.1kHz and 48kHz sound sources, staples in the music industry, are adjusted most accurately via dual ultra-precise temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) clocks with 1.0ps of phase jitter to reproduce the most accurate sounds. High-resolution sound is perfectly and finely reproduced in every circumstance thanks to stable, error-free operation even when exposed to thermal extremes caused by prolonged device operation or temperature and voltage fluctuations in the surrounding environment.
AI Functionality for a Smarter PLENUE L
To make your listening experience more comfortable and convenient, PLENUE L had to be smarter. Some songs' volume is too high or low. The PLENUE L's AI function handles these situations with ease. AI Volume continuously normalizes volume levels of sound files played more than once. You no longer have to adjust the volume of each of your songs. AI shuffle conveniently changes the playback order of songs. It even analyzes and arranges playlist positions according to your preferences. With AI JetEffect function, Cowon's sound field technology "JetEffect" automatically matches presets that are best suited to each source file. PLENUE L's AI functions automatically adjust the settings so your favorite tunes are played exactly the way you like them.
* AI Volume normalizes volume levels based on Normal Preset.
Beyond the Limits of Hearing
Premium Sound Digital Filter
The PLENUE L provides a wider variety of digital filters than ever before for fine-tuning the ES9038PRO DAC.
Extreme micro-tuning is possible via seven DAC filters (Fast Roll-Off, Linear Phase Filter I Slow Roll-Off, Linear Phase Filter I
Apodizing, Fast Roll-Off, Linear Phase Filter I Fast Roll-Off, Minimum Phase Filter I Slow Roll-Off, Minimum Phase Filter I
Hybrid, Fast Roll-Off, Minimum Phase Filter I Brickwall Filter) for realizing transient signal responses in the time domain.
This empowers listeners to tune sounds previously beyond the limits of hearing even with identical sound sources.
Dual Control Wheels,
The New Standard for Analog Wheels
We designed Dual Control Wheels that offer users a variety of experiences--the Volume Wheel for incremental adjustments to sound and the Multi Wheel that controls other analog functions. The wheels are located on the top of the device to prevent accidental adjustments during handling while allowing positive control of volume and other functions. The Multi Wheel on the left conveniently controls functions related to music listening and device operation, while the Volume Wheel on the right allows the volume to be fine-tuned (140 steps in 0.5dB increments). The PLENUE L's Dual Control Wheels are the future of analog wheels.
Tuning the Physical Limits of Space-Time
JetEffect 7 & BBE+
Speakers, headphones, and earphones tend to delay the high-frequency band more than the low-frequency band, even in original sound sources. When facing these phenomena, JetEffect 7 and BBE+ compensate the physical phase to reproduce vivid original sounds like a live performance and provide optimal HD sound via sophisticated methods and controls.
Extensive Codec Support from 32bit
384 kHz HD Sound to DXD and DSD256
The PLENUE L supports a variety of audio formats, from 32bit, 384 kHz lossless/uncompressed AIFF to lossless/compressed formats such as FLAC, ALAC, and APE, as well as other popular formats including WAV, MP3, WMA, and OGG. Also, the device supports DXD(352.8/384kHz) and Native DSD256(11.2MHz) format to offer wide range of high quality sound formats.
