    Cowon Plenue II mk 2 for $399

    Don't know how long this will last. It was weird -- 'marked down' from $799 to $599, with a '$200 off coupon' shown. I assumed that was the $800 ==> $600 drop, but when I put it in the cart, $399!

    This is a really great sounding DAP. Mind it has no WiFi and is not Android. It's 'just' a music player. I use mine to listen whenever I'm travelling or doing something which is too active for my Hugo2go combo. Drives Utopia, HEKse, Auteur, RAD-0 very well. Maybe slightly under-powered for Ether 2 which has very low impedance, so needs more current. Not powerful enough for Heddphones.

    No hiss at all w/ my IEMs (Andro, Atlas, IT-03, IT-04).

    Seems there's a $200 deal for prime then a manufacturer coupon for another $200 on a number of cowon products, it looks like this:
    COWON
    V - $135
    P2 - $300
    P2 Mk2 - $400
    L - $1100

    Ive heard really good things about the L which I think is just a 4.4mm version of the P2 mk2?
    Oops correction the plenue L has entirely different dacs

    Actually, the discount on the P-L is -400 twice, from $1899 down to 1099. And yes, the P2 uses AKM 4497, while P-L uses Sabre 9028. L has a bit more power balanced (4V vs 3.4V). Case is similar, but more rounded than P2 case. I've hear numerous positive impressions of P-L, but I've never encountered one IRL :)

    Porta pros on sale for $20 for Amazon prime day ($30 for version with mic). A headphone everyone should own a pair of.

    Add Yaxi pads (better deal to order direct) for a truly enticing bargain set of cans.

    MusicDirect has 15% off open box with code MD15.

    I picked up the open-box JBL 4312g set they had for about half msrp. :punk:

    I'd be tempted to wait, kinda wondering if we're going to see some really good deals around Thanksgiving/X-Mas.

    Last year they were doing HD6XXs for $160 as I recall with a free extra set of Dekoni ear pads.

    I have heard horror stories about open box LPs from monoprice, and does not come with a warranty. avoid avoid avoid.

    The price on it new has been that way for a while, a killer deal on a great amp. Lots of stories about really bad channel imbalance on new models though, so another reason to get the new one in case you need to warranty swap.

    Whoops, now I feel bad putting this up. Thanks for the heads-up @Inoculator and @lcmusiclover. I just looked at your thread @lcmusiclover and it reads like a horror story.

    I thought it was a good deal since I was seeing a few Liquid Platinums going FS around $500ish on other sites and it seemed like people like the amp. I can edit the post out if we want to steer people away from buying poorly QCed amps.
