PLINIUS AUDIO ANNOUNCES NEW AND UPDATED PRODUCTS FOR 2006



The now famous Plinius SA -102 and SB -300 amplifiers have been recently updated, and are now called SA -103 and SB -301, respectively. The changes are mostly cosmetic/aesthetic, in that the external styling of both of these products, which are built on the same basic chassis, has been updated to bring it more into line with that of the SA -Reference amplifier. A (by now) standard 12 volt trigger feature has also been added to both amplifiers, and the A/C power switch has been shifted from the front panel to the rear on both amps. The SA -103 now features a pair of micro switches on the front panel to control Class A/AB operation and mute, and a similar micro switch to control standby/operate modes on the SB -301 has been installed on the front panel to improve and streamline the products appearance.



Plinius most basic stereo Class -AB stereo amplifier, the P8, has been renamed the P10, and now features a set of XLR -terminated inputs, as well as the current RCA's. The circuit remains unchanged. The 9200 Integrated amp has added a similar set of XLR inputs to augment the standard RCA'S in order to meet the demand from various distributors. While neither product has been electrically or sonically revamped, which means that neither amp is a true differential circuit, users can nevertheless now utilize a wide array of ancillary components that feature XLR outputs without resorting to external adapters.



These changes reflect the fact that Pliniusďż½ markets are growing and changing around the world. Indeed, at a time when traditional 2 -channel High End audio equipment manufacturers are discussing their future and contemplating the manner in which they will try and cope with the growing impact of the home theatre/multi -channel markets, Plinius, with its overall design philosophy and distinctive styling, is growing both in terms of numbers of products shipped, and markets where they are represented, and wants to respond to the needs of its distributors worldwide.



What you have seen so far is just the start of the company's planned expansion, with a couple of new, clean -sheet models set for launch later this year that will extend the current product range and fill in gaps where the range is incomplete. This work is just part of an overall strategy that will see the company continue its innovative expansion in future years to ensure that the Plinius sound reaches the growing number of people in the world who want to experience the pure joy of listening to music played in their own homes as closely as possible to the way it was originally intended by the performing artists.
