Turned out that the dual Wheel wasn’t the only surprise change. Stepping away from Burr-Brown PCM series DACs, where in the past PCM1792A was used in P1/PS and PCM1795 was used in PM/PM2, the new P2 design now features AKM DAC where Cowon leapfrogged over other DAP manufacturers who still use AK4490 and introduced the latest AK4497EQ. As I already mentioned, I didn’t hear the original P1 and only familiar with PM2, but certainly can draw a conclusion that a sound change is in the air because I’m hearing a more neutral revealing signature with a natural reference quality tonality. And I don’t mean “reference” as in thinner, harsher, or analytical, but rather a more revealing, detailed, layered, and dynamic type of sound with a fast-transient response of notes, black background, and a natural timbre of instruments and vocals.
For example, I consider DX200 to have more reference type of sound quality. In comparison, P2 is a little smoother, with a little fuller body and more low end impact. While testing P2 with W900 hybrid IEMs, I hear the bass punch coming through stronger, with more articulation and authority. In comparison to P2, PM2 is smoother and warmer, not as layered or revealing, and I consider P2 as an upgrade to PM2 where I need to use JefEffect to bring PM2 to P2 level. Based on my early impressions, P2 with its AK4497EQ DAC doesn’t have your typical AK4490 smooth/musical sound, but rather has a smooth reference sound, like a crossover between DX200 and Opus#2. And surprisingly, it sounds very close to LPG, though PAW Gold still uses PCM1792A. I do hear a slightly better layering in sound with LPG, but overall tonality and bass impact are very close. Based on my impressions after 100hrs+ of standalone burn in, I can summarize P2 as being like a crossover of the reference quality DX200 with a fuller body smoothness of Opus#2 and layering and low end impact of LPG.
Another thing I’m very pleased to inform about is that in comparison to other flagship DAPs I have on rotation (LPG, Opus#2, and DX200), I found P2 to have the least amount of hissing with sensitive Zeus XRA. For me it became almost like a requirement to test Zeus w/1960 cable and different DAPs to determine which one will yield the best synergy with the least amount of hissing (when idling).
