Plinius Hautonga Integrated Amplifier

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 or black linished anodised 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 theatre simplicity.

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.


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.

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.

Auric Wiring

Audience AV supply the Auric OFC wire used in the input stage of the amplifier. The Auric was chosen for its high workability and natural sound.
