Reference M-10


The Reference M-10 is testament to Plinius’ relentless quest to produce a preamplifier that reveals extraordinary audio detail. At this crucial beginning of the signals journey low value, audio grade resistors are used to minimise noise and, when combined with the adjustable gain feature result in sound without distortion or unnecessary colour, this is pure, powerful sound.

Plinius’ signature aesthetic is still ever present in the external styling of both the dual mono preamplifier and it’s remote. As always, form follows function resulting in the ultimate in design sophistication.

Lovers of high-end audio reproduction will be impressed with the Reference M-10’s uninhibited ability to supply pure detail to the matching Reference A-300 power amplifier. We believe the Reference M-10 can hold its head up amongst the world’s best performing preamplifiers.

Remote Trigger Input & Output

In order to integrate more effectively into a home theatre system, the Reference M-10 has a remote trigger input socket on the rear panel. By connecting a processor or source component with a remote trigger signal to this socket, the Reference M-10 can be switched between HT Bypass and standby modes. When in standby the preamplifier draws less current and will operate at minimum temperature. This may be of advantage in multi-amplifier and/or remote installations.

Line Out

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.

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.
