Plinius - Tautoro Reference Preamplifier
Designed to support Plinius' top end power amplifiers, the Tautoro Preamplifier has a comprehensive array of inputs and outputs. Aesthetically it aligns with the Koru phono stage and Mauri source components as these units are likely to be situated in a visual stack, but its electronics design complements the traditional top end power amplifiers.
There are balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA connection to the 5 line inputs, home theatre bypass loop and dual outputs for bi-amping or multi room installations. There is also an opportunity for an optional phono input to be added in place of one line input.
With a host of features including individual source selection, headphone output, line level source output for archiving and remote trigger in/out for integration into a semi automated system, the Tautoro will comfortably support any combination of power amplifiers you have in your system.
Ideally of course it mates beautifully with Plinius' top range of power amps.
Available in silver or black anodised with a linished finish
OPTIONAL PHONO STAGE
The preamplifier can be fitted with an optional phono stage based on a scaled version of the Koru design. The Phono has four gain settings and five loading settings for suitable cartridge matching.
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 pre-amplifier stage or instigate the power amp to come out of standby.
The RC5 input allows for connection to wired remote interfaces so it can be used as part of an automated system.
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 and Output connectors are fitted to ensure a high performance, low distortion interface between your cables and the preamplifier.
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.
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.
The aluminium lid and panels provide a non-magnetic cover to reduce unwanted magnetic fields that can interfere with the sensitive audio signals.
