The Absolute Sound Editor's Choice 2013/2014/2015

The versatile Hautonga is a perfectly equipped and well balanced piece that derives from preceding development in earlier Plinius integrated amplifiers. The aesthetic is the distinctive Plinius rounded front and it is available in silver anodized finish. The rear panel has five line level RCA inputs with Phono RCA and a balanced XLR pair additional as standard. There is a Pre Out for those that only want to use the pre-amp stage and the Line Out connection for archiving or other ancillary equipment. Trigger in and out connectors provide for multi-room or home theater simplicity.

A full function remote lets you scroll through inputs from your seat. HT Bypass, standby mode for true low power operation that keeps the circuit active to deliver peak performance with minimal delay, mute and volume controls, display brightness adjustment and the full complement of CD player functions are all available from the remote. Careful attention has been paid to signals and circuit layout with short signal paths, optimal component placement and wiring specification working in harmony to extract exciting depth and detail from any musical recording. Taking integrated refinement to a new level, the Hautonga is an amplifier that has set new standards for performance, ease of use and reliability.

Phono Stage: A high quality phono stage comes fitted as standard. With two gain settings and fixed loading it allows for trouble free playback with a number of MM or MC cartridges.

Line Out: The Line out provides a line level output, carrying the selected source signal. The Line Out allows for the signal to go on to recording equipment, headphone amplifiers or sub-woofer speakers.

Remote Trigger Input and Output: Terminals for remote trigger connection allow a processor signal to bypass the preamplifier stage or instigate the power amp to come out of standby.

Ground Lift Switch: This allows for the signal ground to be isolated from the main chassis earth. This can assist in resolving unwanted ground loops or hum due to duplicate ground paths in some systems.

WBT and Neutrik Connectors: High quality WBT RCA and Neutrik XLR input connectors are fitted along with WBT output speaker terminals to ensure low distortion interface between your cables and the amplifier.

Auric Wiring: Audience AV supply the Auric OFC wire used in the input stage of the amplifier. The Auric was chosen for its high work-ability and natural sound.

AudioQuest Wiring: AudioQuest X2 is used in the output stage of the amplifier as a high quality link to the speaker connectors.
