Up for sale is a Plinius Inspire 880 integrated amp with DAC and MM phono stage included. I purchased this new about 9 mos. ago from local dealer after going to listen to a used Musical Fidelity M3 NuVista. The Plinius bested it by a long shot as well a Parasound Halo and my Rogue Sphinx. In comparison to all the above the Plinius just seemed to better balanced top to bottom and more transparent and engaging than any of them. Unfortunately I got seduced by the tubes of a vintage McIntosh MC240 which the Plinius sounds very similar to just not quite as open and airy. Its in perfect condition. Remote, manual, and original box included From Plinius' website: This versatile 80 watt per channel integrated amplifier goes a step further than traditional integrated products and gives you enhanced listening from almost any source. The Inspire 880 will accept signals from your CD player, your personal computer, your AV source and even vinyl from your turntable.
Not only that but you get this versatility with a product that looks as stunning as it sounds. The aesthetic designs of the new Inspire range introduce new tones and textures to the finishes available in the Plinius range.
To listen to stored digital files all you need do is connect your music collection to your Inspire 880 via the USB input. You then use your media player to select what you want to play and stream it to your Inspire 880 which converts the digital signal to the analogue signal your speakers need. In no time at all you can be up and running with Plinius clarity refinement and power.
