    What About Plinius?

    Plinius is a brand I see up for sale occasionally but have never seen at a show nor ever heard. Anyone know something about them? I haven't even seen them offered on various dealer websites visited. I wonder if they are still in business.

    Re: What About Plinius?

    Plinius is still alive and well. Their gear is quite good.
    I don't belive they have a US distributor, but dealers are available on their website.
    In Canada they are distributed by Motet Distribution.
    Disclaimer - i do service for Plinius. I don't see a lot of it.

    Plinius is a very well known and respected brand in the Southern hemisphere, though their technical abilities appear to outshine their marketing ones.

    years back I owned a Plinius SA-102, one of my all time favorite amps.

    A few years ago I was on the verge of buying a Plinius SB-301 MkII, but I couldn't take the very high heat output, especially for an AB amp. Otherwise a very impressive unit.
