Plinius - KioKio
Designed for 19U rack installation the KioKio was developed for the professional audio sector. Home Theatre installers had been using our SB301 and in their words found it 'bullet proof'; used in demonstrations it had been trucked around the USA and while the outside was battered by less than gentle handling the electronics just refused to give up.
So much of the movie experience is the audible part of the show and amplifiers used in dedicated home theatre installations cannot give up. Reliability is the key for professional installers that have to service their installations so this unit meets their needs wonderfully.
Of course it's a Plinius product so it looks good too and sometimes it's a shame to see it hidden in a rack. Its modern slim line design graces any audio system cabinet when used for dedicated two channel audio.
This design enables the amplifier to fit within a standard 19U rack or equipment shelf and was developed to allow for studio use and multi-amplifier home theatre installations.
AMPLIFIER CONFIGURATION SELECTOR (ACS) SWITCH
The rear panel ACS switch allows for the amplifier to be configured for Stereo RCA or XLR modes.
REMOTE TRIGGER INPUT
When connected to a preamplifier trigger output, the amplifier will switch out of Standby and be ready for use when the preamplifier is taken 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 a low distortion interface between your cables and the amplifier.
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.
Siltech premium 'G7' silver/gold wire provides a perfect connection between components to give clear, fast and detailed presentation of the music signal.
The aluminium construction provides a rigid non-magnetic housing to eliminate unwanted magnetic fields that can interfere with the sensitive audio signals.
