Often we hear of technology developed for a premium model being transferred to other products within a line. While this does have some validity usually there are compromises made to allow this "technology" to appear in sibling models. Following on the tremendous success of the Odeon we thought that it would be prudent to capture the sonic magic of the Odeon and make it more readily available in a two channel package. We have been aware for some time that we can now get frighteningly close to Class A operation with a Class AB design. The Odeon proved this and not happy to just rely on Odeon technology we have created a two channel amplifier, that uses two exact Odeon modules in a smaller chassis. The power supply is similar to the Odeon and uses two very large toroidal transformers connected in parallel. The same attention to detail is maintained and internally it is both elegant and functional. Delivering 225 Watts per Channel and in keeping with all Plinius amplifiers is not distressed by difficult to drive speaker systems. We have elected to keep the SA name for this model as it represents a premium quality amplifier that shares a close sonic and value pedigree with our top range amplifiers. The distinctive styling will allow its inclusion in both traditional and contemporary settings while providing the level of performance that is a PLINIUS hallmark. Available in both Silver and Black anodised finish.
