REVIEWS

A Lot Under One Hood!

“With complementary bass prowess, the 980’s portrayal is deep and punchy with a solid grip on speaker drivers, especially on rock tracks like Electric Six’s “Dance Command- er.” The Plinius delivers the full energy of this song with little (if any) compromises.”
By Rob Johnson

“Whatever your taste, the Plinius Inspire 980 is a fantastic bargain, especially for those utilizing both digital and analog sources”
