changing from rotel and peach to plinius 8100?


Hello all, I am going to replace my rotel 980 power amp and my juicy music preamp, for a 8100 plinius. I have been reading quite a bit about the plus sides to intergrated amps and am wanting to try it out. Before you say anything I know the 8100 is quite old but my thinking is it will give me a taste of how a good integrated can sound, am I correct? My question is what changes should i expect? thank you very much. Scott

I know the 8100 is quite old but my thinking is it will give me a taste of how a good integrated can sound, am I correct? you will not be disappointed plus I think the 8100
is better as the new 9100 also you can do an upgrade that
will make it even better
The peach is a good preamp in my experience, that was the piece that was bugging me the most, also sold the rotel 991 and bought a resolution audio cd50 again a older piece but according to resolution audio will sound similar to the opus 21, not dead on but in the family tree. thanks,Scott
I owned many integrateds including the Plinius 9200. I went back to separates lately and I'm beginning to hear more instrument separation, detail etc. But if you can optimize your system with the 8100 (right speaker-match, cables etc) you can have a satisfying system. Satisfaction is about matching speakers, electronics, sources and cabling. It's challenging unless you already have a successful blueprint.
