Inspire 880 Integrated Amplifier

This versatile 80 watt per channel integrated amplifier goes a step further than traditional integrated products and gives you enhanced listening from almost any source. The Inspire 880 will accept signals from your CD player, your personal computer, your AV source and even vinyl from your turntable.

Not only that but you get this versatility with a product that looks as stunning as it sounds. The aesthetic designs of the new Inspire range introduce new tones and textures to the finishes available in the Plinius range.

To listen to stored digital files all you need do is connect your music collection to your Inspire 880 via the USB input. You then use your media player to select what you want to play and stream it to your Inspire 880 which converts the digital signal to the analogue signal your speakers need. In no time at all you can be up and running with Plinius clarity refinement and power.

The Inspire 880 is a great way to bring your listening experience, from almost any source, into the world of real high fidelity.

"With complementary bass prowess, the 980’s portrayal is deep and punchy with a solid grip on speaker drivers, especially on rock tracks like Electric Six’s “Dance Command- er.” The Plinius delivers the full energy of this song with little (if any) compromises."
By Rob Johnson

"Whatever your taste, the Plinius Inspire 980 is a fantastic bargain, especially for those utilizing both digital and analog sources"
