I have a 103 and mostly run it in AB mode. Great amp. Don't have an urge to upgrade at all.

I have a Plinius 8200 with the Galbo Designs Ultimate Mod and it is amazing!! Very detailed, lots of separation around instruments, depth, and big big soundstage extending out beyond the speakers at time. Lately it's been my preamp that feeds a custom built pair of James Burgess monoblocks that feed my Zu Audio Omen MKII loudspeakers. It's a very nice match.

I was quite interested in their SB 301 (class AB) until it became clear to me how much heat it put out even at idle. Otherwise a very nice, powerful amp at a good price.

I agree, the high heat was a deal breaker for me. My Accuphase Class A Amps run much cooler.

Who is Plinius?

Never heard of 'em.

If there was an integrated I'd be interested in, it would be Hegel.

Very awesome! I've never read anything about mods for their equipment.

The 8200 was very much on my radar for a while, but at the time(s), I went in other directions.

Would love to read more about your amp.

I saw several reviews over the years but never visited a dealer who carried the line.

Kiwi company. To my ears their big integrated was a tad bright, but their big, beefy amps sound great. Their calling card is big class A.

I have a Diablo 300 and love it.
