Sweeping changes using innovative technologies. Experiencing the performance of PLENUE 2 leaves audiophiles and casual listeners alike in awe.The Latest Ultra-High-Quality Premium DAC AK4497EQ DAC AKM's latest AK4497EQ DAC equipped with high-end audio equipment is a premium, high-performance, state-of-the-art successor to the AK4490 DAC. It minimizes noise and distortion and faithfully reproduces high-resolution audio via AKM Premium Sound technology, pushing audio DAC performance to its very limits. The PLENUE 2, featuring the AK4497EQ DAC with specifications and characteristics on par with and even exceeding the highest standards of audio equipment, vividly reproduces sound that most closely mirrors the original and handles audiophile-quality 24bit, 192kHz lossless/uncompressed as well as DXD and DSD sources.Core Technology and Philosophy AKM Premium Sound Digital Filter The PLENUE 2 is equipped with the AK4497EQ DAC featuring the AKM Premium Sound architecture that utilizes a large circuit area to improve current flow, allowing you to fine-tune the sounds using a wide range of digital filters. Six 32bit, 8x digital filters (Short Delay Sharp, Short Delay Slow, Sharp, Slow, Low-Dispersion Short Delay, and Super-Slow) are provided to enable fine micro-tuning and allow implementation of transient signal responses in the time domain. This empowers listeners to tune sounds previously beyond the limits of hearing even with identical sound sources.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 2Vrms, 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. Closer to the Original Sound, Native TX DSD The PLENUE 2 transmits native DSD data to the DAC in serial, perfectly converting audio signals and reproducing DSD sources using a Native TX DSD method. The crystal clear, delicate qualities of high-resolution DSD sound sources are better realized than ever before.
