Plinius SS or Cayin SET

Hi All,

I'm down sizing but want to keep the quality of my music. Room is small and not ideal but has to do. 4M x 4M.

Presently Im looking at either of the below set ups:-

1. Cayin 300B (8W Set amp) driving Coincident triumph speakers
2. Plinius 9100 amp driving either the Harbeth P3ESR or compact 7's

Thoughts please. I know I should audition but Australia is so backwards, no one carries these fine brands...we are well behind the times

Music is soul / Reggae / RNB. Artist like Amy Wine House, Mary J Blige, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, Keith Sweat, Bob Marley, Joss Stone, Tracey, Tracey Champman. No classical / orcestra / country what so ever.

I appreciate your thoughts, many thanks.

I have not heard either of those systems and don't think anyone could tell you which you would prefer.

I'd say if you like to tinker with and tweak your system give the Cayin a try.

If you want to be able to just turn it on and play music and be able to leave it on and not worry about it get the Plinius.

I have a larger Plinius power amp and it's a very good amp.
Depends on how long you leave the amp on for as stated above but for pure music listening I would go with the Cayin or one of their higher power integrateds like the 88T, 70T, or 50T.

I have Cayin 265Ai Class A solid state integrated and love it. For the dollar they are hard to beat.
