Ryuzoh’s mods (more info here: http://info.m-s-tech.jp) showed up several places at Fujiya Avic’s latest headphone show, upon the closing of which, I returned his awesome balanced Mojo mod. Ryuzoh told me that he had a special mod he’d like me to check out, something to do with coaxial output and an AK100. Something that would return performance gains and better sound.
I said I’d be happy, but I wasn’t keen on losing the headphone out of my AK100. No problem, he assured me. Before he left me at the gate of the nearest station, I asked about the Cowon Plenue D. I asked if he could mod it. He told me probably not. Its case was tight. We parted, but not before I left a seed of doubt with Ryuzoh.
Later on, he DM’d my breezily unfollowed twitter account. He’d take a look at my Plenue D. Flip flap! I wrapped my D and my last untouched AK100 between bubbles and paper and shot it off to Ryuzoh on Saturday. The package is scheduled to return to me before 22 May, modded AK100 stuffed inside, and possibly a surprise.
Is there a case for modding the Plenue D? We’ll see.
