PRICE ON APPLICATION

While the Kaitaki preamplifier mates aesthetically and musically with the Plinius P10 power amplifier this exciting preamplifier is the perfect partner for the Plinius SA103 power amplifier used either as a stereo amplifier or in a monoblock configuration.

Visible controls on the Kaitaki are the rotary volume knob and source selection buttons with all other functions driven from the distinctive Plinius remote control. LED indicators on the front panel display demonstrate the source selected and status of the mute, phase and HT bypass functions.

FEATURES

ALUMINIUM CONSTRUCTION

The aluminium lid and panels provide a non-magnetic cover to reduce unwanted magnetic fields that can interfere with the sensitive audio signals.

AURICAP CAPACITORS

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.

RC5 INPUT

The RC5 input allows for connection to wired remote interfaces so it can be used as part of an automated system.

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.

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.

Optional Phono Stage

The preamplifier can be fitted with an optional phono stage based on the Hautonga design. The Phono has two gain settings and five loading settings to allow for suitable cartridge matching.
