The Plinius 8150 is one of audio’s true ‘classic’ designs having a devoted following that reveres its combination of performance at a reasonable price. This integrated has been thoroughly bench-tested and meets or exceeds all of its specifications and sounds great.

One of its most popular points is how good it sounds at low volumes. Richness and fullness at lower levels makes even background music satisfying.

It boasts a robust 150 watts-per-channel into 8-ohms, 230 into 4-ohms, running the first 25 watts in Class A then switching to Class AB the rest of the way. The 8150 combines large parts of the preamp stage of the magnificent Plinius M16 preamp along with circuitry very similar to that found in the Plinius class-A power amps. 

The front panel is clean and uncluttered, making it easy to operate. There are ten pairs of RCAs on the rear including a very high quality MM phono stage. There are line level inputs labeled for tuner and CD player, along with two tape loops. It features pre-out connections. Heavy duty gold plated 5-way binding posts. The are two sets of output terminals for each channel to simplify bi-wiring. Finally, the rear panel includes an external processing loop for a home theater processor. Basically this is another tape loop, but with the loop occurring after the volume control instead of before. This is a great idea, as it allows the inclusion of home theater in a high quality audio system.

While this unit is remote-capable I never used the simple remote control that came with it and cannot find it. You  can probably
