New standards for analogue wheels - Dual control wheel
The Plenue 2 features new analogue control wheels that offer a tactile way to control your music, from volume to control other analogue functions. To prevent unwanted manipulation when placed in a pocket, the wheels have been placed on the top, allowing easy access to control the volume and various functions.
The multi-wheel on the left-hand side can conveniently control functions related to music listening and operation.
The volume wheel on the right side allows you to fine-tune the volume of a total of 140 steps in 0.5 dB increments, making it easy to adjust the volume.
The round LED light on the bottom of the wheel gives the P2 a more luxurious feel by subtly displaying the operational status of the device in two colours: white and red.
Perfectly Accurate, Ultra Precision Dual TCXO Clock
The sampling rate of a player can fluctuate due to environmental factors such as temperature and humidity. To reduce this effect the Plenue 2 uses the Ultra Precision Dual Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) Clock with an exceptional Phase Jitter 1.0ps allowing the P2 to perform flawlessly in any situation.
High quality balanced output
Balanced output adds 'reverse phase signal' to the unbalanced output signal, effectively blocking the noise generated during signal transmission. In addition, because the two signals are transmitted, the output becomes stronger, and it has the advantage of reproducing high-resolution sound sources more clearly.
Tune the physical limits of time and space
World-renowned professional sound control JetEffect 7 built in. Speakers, headphones, and earphones tend to delay the high-frequency band more than the low-frequency band, even if the sound is original.
JetEffect 7 & BBE+ compensates for this phenomenon so it reproduces with vivid original sound like a real live performance, and this sophisticated sound compensation and compensation control provides the best quality for HD Sound. You can freely adjust 10 band EQ Filter, BBE+, Reverb, Chorus etc. which can adjust sound according to each frequency. A total of 66 pre-sets including 16 user pre-sets enable precise tone control according to your preference. The BBE+ with phase correction enables crisp, dense sound close to the live sound of the original recording. No matter what environment you listen in, whatever receiver you use or whatever the genre of music you listen to, JetEffect 7 gives you the best hi-fi sound.
Premium leather case to enhance elegance
