I've thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful piece for over 14 years. It was upgraded to an 8200 many years ago and more recently has received Vince Galbo's "Ultimate Mod". This was an extensive upgrade ($1,100) but if you're not familiar, you can research the extraordinary results of Vince's work. The 8150 has been an audiophile classic but this upgrade is absolutely stunning! The clarity and delicacy of the highs and mids with much more air are breathtaking and of course the bass is amazing with a ton of slam. The upgrade also improved the MM/MC phono considerably. It more than rivals the Hautonga and I can share more info with those interested. Here is some feedback from others that have had their Plinius upgraded by Vince:
"...among the improvements noted are: far more emotional involvement for me; much more air and resolution, particularly in the upper frequencies; the stage has definitely expanded, in height, depth and especially in width(which had concerned me). Wonderfully satisfying and I believe that further break-in will improve performance considerably."
"WOW. Sounds GREAT and that may be the biggest understatement I have ever made! Full, deep bottom end extension. Easily the best I have ever heard. Highs go on to infinity it seems. Mids are even, well balanced. Every performance is full bodied, carries the right weight, tone and harmonic structure. Lots of image separation and space between the performers. The soundstage is much larger than before and extends at least 5 feet beyond each speaker and perhaps 10 feet beyond my rear wall. It's crazy, almost unbelievable good."
It has been well very cared for in a smoke free home. Rating 8/10 due to age only, is in excellent condition and performs flawlessly. The remote is also in great shape and works perfectly. Includes the original box, remote, power cord and manual. Glad to answer questions, etc.
