Plinius News 2017 - Fresh from Vegas
« on: January 08, 2017, 04:55:35 PM »
Plinius has just lifted the feil for 2017 at CES Las Vegas...

The all new RM-10 Stereo Preamplifier

2017 will begin for Plinius with a release of a new Reference series of products.
Designated with the 'R' prefix to indicate 'Reference series', the range will begin with an all new preamplifier - the RM-10 (replacing the Faithfull Tautora), followed closely by two Class A power amplifiers - the RA-300 and RA-125.

The series will deliver flagship electronic designs and highest level build quality,  housed in a new, complimentary aesthetic defining the range.

Key features of the new RM-10 Stereo Preamplifier:

- All New Discrete Circuit Design.
Designed completely from the ground up and with zero integrated circuit op-amps, this
preamplifier takes a new direction, using only discrete components for lowest possible
noise and distortion figures.

- Balance Control
A high quality analogue balance control allows accurate adjustment of the audio level from
left to right.

- High Performance HT Bypass
A new HT Bypass implementation eliminates additional balanced/single ended signal
processing and passes the signal through the high quality line amplifier stage.

- Adjustable Line Stage Gain
A rear panel toggle switch allows the new Line Amplifier stage to be adjusted between
either the standard 12dB gain or a lower noise 0dB gain setting.

- Dual Mono Configuration
A dedicated transformer and power supply for each of the left and right channels allows
complete isolation of the signals and importantly the ground reference paths.

- New Remote
The new Reference remote control defines the series with a bold new look. The direct input
selection allows immediate access to the desired input.

- Direct Input Selection
The receiver in the preamplifier, coupled with the RC5 Remote input socket allows easy
integration with home automation controls.

And there is more.....

Plinius RA 300 Class A Power Amplifier.



The new Reference RA-300 Class A power amplifier continues the Plinius lineage of amplification but with a new direction in mind. The RA-300 targets new levels of refinement from its custom high capacity/high temperature power supply capacitors, upgraded transformers and up rated audiophile components throughout the unit.
