Phono in the 9200 wasn't bad. I wouldn't let the phono be the deciding factor in buying the unit though.

I owned a Hautonga for a while. A great amp for the money with plenty of power for my B&W 804's. I wish that I could have kept it but I have too many toys in my sound room and something had to go to make way for the new gear.

A couple of weeks ago I just bought a Plinius Hautonga pre amp off the used market. It is a legacy product for them now, looks like it went out of production a year or so ago. Seems like the company gets a lot of praise for the amps, but the pre's are kind of overlooked.

I thought long and hard about buying this, cause its huge, has a ton of boards in it, and does not seem to shield the power supply well from the rest of the electronics. I bought it anyways, putting a bit of faith in the few written reviews out there. So very glad I did, as this is an excellent pre amp. I am really pleased with its level of performance in all areas of music. A very well rounded component that is neutral in tonal balance, extremely low noise floor, images well, and has honest bass response. Very well built and finished also.

While it was not cheap, it certainly was worth every dollar spent.

Cheers
Mister Pig

hi
I'm looking at buying the Hautonga and was wondering what DAC would be a good match. I realise it's like asking how long is a piece of string. Thanks

I have a Hautonga as well and am really enjoying it. I recently borrowed a Bryston BDA-3 from a friend for an audition and thought it sounded great. It’s on my wish list now.
