Description stereo amplifier, Plinius Hiato

The company is Plinius Hiato integrated amplifier. Increasing the output power up to 300 watts per channel and using basic design features the most exclusive models, the engineers got the Plinius amplifier new level. Hiato flawless reproduction of music of any genre and its traditional Plinius black or silver and elegant finish will bring you tremendous aesthetic pleasure.

Full Plinius Hiato amplifier impresses with its explosive power, providing 300 watts per channel at 8 Ohms or 450 watts at 4 ohms.

The model design corresponds to the traditional concept Plinius and impressive in its grandeur, Recalling the armor of the Teutonic knights. Thick aluminum front panel smoothly bends around the corners. Top cover and sidewall is also made of aluminum. In the center of the front panel features a LED power indicator that changes the brightness depending on the operation mode. Right installed handle high-precision volume control. Below is a number consisting of 6 buttons input selector. Left set 3.5 mm plug to connect an MP3 player and two led indicators. One of them (Phase) indicates that the phase is inverted by 180°, and the second (HT Bypass) demonstrates the use of one of the "pass-through" inputs.

Model Plinius Hiato is class AB. At key points of electrical circuits are effectively capacitors, Auricap XO, which improve the quality of the sound. The wiring of the input section is made with the cable company Auric Audience AV, in which there are conductors of oxygen-free copper OFC for natural sound. The kit includes the aluminum remote control that can control a CD player Plinius.

Four pairs of output connectors allow to use the loudspeaker connection on the circuit Bi-Wired, also has a linear output and to implement the scheme Bi-Amping. In addition to the four linear inputs on the rear panel of the amplifier provides the ability to add optional built-in Phono stage. In addition to high quality RCA cables for all line inputs may balanced XLR connection for channels "CD" and "Line 1". For integration into home theatre system Hiato equipped with a HT bypass input, IR input and 12 V switches Unobtrusive 3.5 mm Jack allows to connect a compact device without needing access to the rear panel.

Plinius Hiato is a typical representative of High-End and able to cope even with those speakers that present a difficult load. Amplifier perfectly controls the entire range of frequencies and provide a clean, dynamic sound with great detail and treble range, tight, precisely drawn bass and natural MIDs. The scene is impressive width and depth. The amplifier is equally well possible to reproduce as energetic compositions, and the musical material, performed multi-piece orchestras.

In the concept of minimalist Hiato implemented the principle of team Plinius – "sophistication in simplicity". The intuitive interface does not prevent to receive pleasure from listening, and thoughtful combination of convenient buttons on the front panel and the massive volume knob is successfully completed by a multifunctional remote control that also supports a set of commands CD player Plinius.
