Cowon Plenue P1 review

 

A refined music player for the hi-fi purist...

Refined, authoritative presentation ; Plenty of insight ; Fluid dynamics ; Solid build ; Extensive file compatibility

Relaxed sound might not suit all tastes ; Bewildering choice of EQ settings

The Plenue P1 is a likeable performer that, while pricey, delivers an immensely enjoyable sound

Cowon Plenue 1 review: This player hits the high-end notes

 

This simple music player lets you listen in virtually any format and sounds great -- for a price.

The Cowon Plenue 1 looks and sounds like a premium player with incredible build quality and nuanced sound. The player offers wide file support including FLAC, DSD and ripped SACDs. It comes with 128GB of memory standard and can be expanded up to 256GB....

The buttons are easily activated by accident, even with the lock button on, and lack tactile aids. No streaming support with no networking or third-party apps. Short 8-hour battery life.

​If you're looking for a no-nonsense, great-sounding player the Cowon Plenue 1 is pretty hard to beat.
