Integrated Amps: An Addicts Guide Part, The Third.

Recommended Posts

I was talking to Cameron via PM last night and he skirted responsibility for the disc and insinuated that "the wife may have been to blame".  

 

He was remarkably believable.

It wouldn't be the first time one of us has blamed the wife.

 

Looking forward to hearing how the Plini spinner performs with its brethren.

Good to hear mate.  Things are starting to move in the second hand market again, it must be the end of the financial year.

OK, so the CD 101 is back from its surgery (the tray now does as it is told) and the two Pliniuses are back together again.  I've given the CD-101 its one hundred hour run in (because I'm convinced that it wasn't fully run in, even though it was second hand) and am eagerly waiting for my audio nirvana to arrive.

They really do work well together.  Both the top and bottom end of the 9200 have improved with the addition of the CD-101 and they were pretty damn good to begin with.  Fast, solid sound with both a musical top and bottom end.  Life is good!

 

This may just be endgame level audio ladies and gents.  I suppose only time will tell.

OK, so how do you type a word that is pronounced as Plin-eee-eye?  Does the double 'i' do it in Plinii?

 

Plinius Pluralus?

 

Even the mighty Google is not very helpful on this one, apparently you just don't get plural versions of family names.

 

Perhaps some sort of poll is called for.

I do miss my Plini'usses - I'm scouting for a Hautonga right now which does have remote source select, but is otherwise the same amp. I had one while in Sydney but sold it sadly, I'm having trouble finding any in the pre-loved market and they are still a bit $$$ new. Nice work, and I did match it with ha CD-101 for a while, and yes it was awesome.

I have to say that I have also owned a 9200 and 8200, I always thought that the they all had legions of bass, and that this was one of the Plinius sound signatures, very controlled, to the extent that I had no problem winding the wick up to some serious SPL, without wondering of my speakers were going to loose it.

Dazza's version has my vote: Plinii.

 

+1. You may wish to given them individual names to help identify them. In your case, I suspect the amp would be Pliny the Elder.

You found those references too huh?  Not much else is there?

 

They are different colours so I could go with Silver and Stealthy (that satin/carbon black makes me think of stealth material for some reason).

 

Or

 

Since the amp has had a harder life than some, with a few nicks and scratches, Scarface could work.  Hmmmm....

I think we'd need to put three "i"s on the end then Daz.

      Item: Naim Nait 5Si
      Location: Mirboo North VIC 3871
      Price: Sold on gumtree
      Item Condition: Excellent
      Reason for selling: No Longer Required
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal friends family, COD Only, EFT
      Extra Info:
       
      I purchased this current model Naim Nait 5si the other week as I was thinking about downgrading from my Naim Nac82/Teddy Dual Cap/Nap250 system to something more simple and compact, and it does sounds really very neat, but it I have already re-installed my 82/250, as it is no surprise that, as good as the Nait 5si is, it is no competitor to my 82/250, and these are now back in my system driving my Harbeth SHL5's. Maybe I was being a little foolish in the first place but I was keen to give it a try.
       
      The Nait 5si retails new for $2250 so this represents an absolute steal, and my loss will be someone's gain. I purchased this privately but even the store demo models are selling for around $1795 (if you can get one).
       
      As you would expect the unit is in excellent used condition, complete with box, original packaging, instructions and a rather nice Narcom remote. Serial number corresponds to manufacture year 2016.
       
      Audition is most welcomed as is cash on collection, or I will ship within AU only by Australia Post, Express Insured, which I expect to be circa $65, but if its less than this then I will refund you the difference, if it is more then I will stand the additional cost.
       
      I am 2 hours SE of Melbourne and might be able to deliver into Melb (after payment)
       
      There are plenty of reviews for this amp so I won't get into detail here, other than to say it has the typical Naim pace rhythm and timing with great detail.
      The 5si is 60w per channel and should drive most speakers with relative ease.
