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.

      Hey All.
      So I am wanting to get a DAC and Headphone AMP, either as one unit or a stack is fine.
      $500 budget.
      No real preference for sound, just clean, natural, no excess bass or treble boost.
      Will be plugged into PC of cause, so USB, Toslink and so on will be handy.
       
      Also got about $300 for a closed set of headphones with similar sounding characteristics.
       
      Suggestions will be very helpful thanks, must be able to buy online from a decent seller, no dodgy over sea's stuff please.

      Item: Bryston B135 SST² Integrated Amplifier 
      Location: Melbourne
      Price: $4,299
      Item Condition: Mint
      Reason for selling: Interested in trying something new
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
       
      I'm considering selling this to try something different.
       
      Putting feelers out there to gauge interest.
       
      The unit is absolutely mint, black finish, and comes with the optional remote control (which lists for $699 alone!). It was purchased new by me in May 2015. 
       
      The amplifier retails for $7k new so this is a bargain.
       
      I still have all the packaging so COULD ship, but would prefer local pickup if possible.
       
      I'm be interested in a trade for a NAIM Supernait 2, or one of the NAIM Uniti Novas, but that's about all.
       
      Some info
       
      Brochure is here: http://www.bryston.com/PDF/brochures/B135_BROCHURE.pdf
       
      135W into 8 Ohms (180W into 4 Ohms) Over 30,000 MFD of filter capacitance per channel Three ultra-low-noise power transformers Separate ground paths for Digital and Analog Gold plated switch, contacts, and connectors Pre-out/main in connectors Computer modelled heat-sink. Convection cooled and housed in a fully aluminium chassis Headphone jack 20 year warranty (16 years to go!)  
      This is an incredible amplifier, with a low noise floor and pitch black background. It excels in bringing out detail in recordings without (somehow!) highighting flaws in production.

      Item: Yamaha A-S700 Amplifier 
      Location: Kew Area, Victoria 
      Price: no longer for sale
      Item Condition: good
      Reason for selling: surplus 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: selling my trusty A-S700 
      It has a few light swirl marks on the case and light scratch on side of case, the face plate is clean
      Phono section sounds better than my Schiit Mani. Pure Direct mode sounds excellent
      I've put lower profile feet on it which in my opinion looks way better than the tall black plastic originals. The original feet will be included. 
      Comes with remote, which has a few wear marks on it
