REVIEW – WHATHIFI.COM – ”An affordable portable music player that sounds great.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 award winner.

… The midrange is clear and detailed too. We play a 24bit/192kHz file of American Idiot by Green Day, and Billie Joe Armstrong’s superior snarl as he sings of the paranoia of the people comes across clearly.

Compared to the sound quality you might get from even the best smartphones, there’s more detail and nuance.

Verdict – Certainly, the Cowon Plenue D is a player worth its salt. It can handle a range of files, has an open and insightful sound quality, and is easy to use.

Those looking for a simple, realtively low-cost, pocket-sized player should definitely give this a go.


High Resolution sound – a new standard in listening to music
For the finest sound quality, High Resolution Audio files take music to the next level. The difference between HR (High Resolution) music and typical MP3/AAC compressed music files is immense. Hi-Res music offers a deeper and wider sound stage, more precise imaging and, above all, a far greater sense of realism.

Handles a wide range of Hi-Res and standard formats
Fitted with a top quality 24-bit/192Hz DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) the Plenue D is compatible with a wide range of files types. These include FLAC/WAV/AIFF/ALAC/APE/MP3/WMA and OGG.

Expandable storage
As standard, the Plenue D has 32GB of storage – enough for a modest music library. Thanks to the MicroSD card slot, though, this can be expanded by up to a further 128GB – enough for a pretty serious music collection.

Built-in rechargeable battery giving up to 100 hours playback
Recharge the player in around 3.5 hours and you’ll have a class-leading battery life of up to 100 hours (MP3). Even with the highest quality Hi-Res files the battery life is around 51 hours – around five times better than many rivals and comparable smartphones.

Compact and stylish
Measuring just 77mm by 53mm the Plenue D easily fits the palm of your hand. The aluminium case is both strong and light – as well as giving the player a high quality feel. An easy-to-use touch screen makes navigation easy and comes as second nature after using a smartphone. Physical buttons fall easily to hand for major functions, such as volume and power.

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

Concerned About Fraud?

The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
