The Plinius Inspire 980 combines a high quality Plinius integrated amplifier with digital inputs ( two optical and one USB ) Moving Magnet phono stage, Balanced analogue connections and it is also an accomplished network player in its own right.
The Inspire is fully loaded with plenty of power and facilities all in a compact form but above all else it sounds amazing. The big involving Plinius sound is still there as is the build quality and attention to detail. Running our Vivid V1.5 speakers in the showroom the Inspire 980 is not out of place given the quality of sound on offer from Vivid. The Inspire 980 is rated at 80w per channel but in listening that seems a conservative estimate as the control in the bass ( a Plinius quality) would suggest greatly more.
