Bottom Line:   
Plinius Odeon multichannel amplifier with Accuphase CX-260 preamp :

See also my review on Plinius Odeon amp.

Starting by the Odeon together with the expensive Accuphase CX-260 pre, we immidiately reached a very high level of performance. Nothing really bad or negative could be said at that moment.
It certainly was an important challenge to the Classé combination that I will discuss later on. After deepgoing listening I might say that together they sound very good, but there was some missing link, call it need for coherence. I guess this is due to the very analitical Accuphase preamp that I already disliked a bit somewhere before.
Compared to the Belcanto Pre6 to whom The Plinius Odeon was coupled with before, this Accuphase again proved to be far too stressed up, too bright, too less involved. No emotion was felt, it sounded I would even say a bit digital.

Conclusion :

After all, the combination of the Odeon with the Accuphase pre was not anyone’s favourite present in my house.
Nor was it mine. Nor was it my dealers’.
