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