Plinius Hiato Integrated Amp

With 300 watts per channel the Hiato integrated stereo amplifier is a serious piece of equipment capable of driving big, difficult to drive speakers. It masters complex musical pieces that many dedicated power amps struggle with to give you spine tingling detail in the treble and control over the bass and mid range that is a pure delight.

If you are looking for an integrated amplifier solution in your music system but you don’t want to sacrifice the benefits that true, well controlled power can bring then this amplifier is for you.

Optional Phono Stage

The preamplifier can be fitted with an optional phono stage based on a scaled version of the Koru design. The Phono has four gain settings and five loading settings to allow for suitable cartridge matching.

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.


Audience AV supply the Auricap XO capacitors used in key areas of the circuit. The Auricap was chosen for its superior clarity and dynamic ability.

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.


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.

Siltech Wiring

Siltech premium ‘G7’ silver/gold wire provides a perfect connection between components to give clear, fast and detailed presentation of the music signal.
