Synthesis A100 Titan Integrated Stereo Tube Amplifier
The Synthesis A100 Titan Integrated Stereo Tube Amplifier, part of the Synthesis Action series, stands as a testament to high-quality audio equipment, blending the latest technology with top-notch materials to deliver an unparalleled listening experience. This product line, featuring three models of stereo tube amplifiers with onboard DACs, is tailored for those who appreciate the intricacies of sound and seek a rich, authentic audio reproduction.
At the heart of the A100 Titan lies its impressive power output, offering a 100 watts per channel. This capability is driven by eight KT66 tubes in an Ultra-Linear (UL) push/pull operation, a setup that ensures robust and dynamic sound production. Complementing its powerful core is the A100 Titan’s custom-designed output transformer, a feature shared with its larger counterpart in the series. This transformer not only enhances the sound stage but also adds a depth and authority to the audio output, making the 100 W rating seem like an understatement.
A standout feature of the A100 Titan is its USB and S/PDIF input, integrated for the first time with a 24 bit 192 kHz Wolfson DAC. This inclusion is pivotal in transforming digital sources into extraordinary sonic experiences, elevating the overall quality of the audio. The DC-powered tube heater is another notable aspect. With stabilised heater circuits for all tubes except the KT66, the amplifier significantly reduces hum noise, achieving a near-inaudible level.
The amplifier’s output transformer deserves special mention. Crafted from high-grade Iron-Silicon, it excels in frequency reproduction and width. This custom transformer, unique to the A100 Titan, enables delicate and precise sound reproduction, staying faithful to the original recording. Such fidelity is further enhanced by the mechanical chassis construction. The “H” structure holding the power supply and output transformers provides remarkable rigidity, minimizing vibrations and thereby reducing noise interference to the tubes.
User convenience is also a priority, as evidenced by the remote control feature. With its CNC machined case and soft button design, the remote is not just functional but also aesthetically in sync with the “ACTION” series. The amplifier’s feet, four CNC machined aluminium pieces with natural rubber inserts, play a crucial role too. Their design is meticulously calculated to minimize vibrations, isolating the amplifier from its surroundings and improving sound quality.
Connectivity and durability are addressed with gold-plated professional binding posts and ceramic sockets. These components ensure an oxidation-free connection, enhancing the longevity of the equipment and refining sound quality. The choice of components in the A100 Titan is deliberate and meticulous. Each component undergoes thorough analysis for its sonic impact, ensuring that only the best are selected.
The tubes used in the A100 Titan are chosen with utmost care. A two-stage warm-up process, monitored by a fully computerized system, selects the perfect tubes. These are then matched for balance, guaranteeing a harmonious and superior audio output.
The Synthesis A100 Titan Integrated Stereo Tube Amplifier from the Synthesis Action series represents a fusion of cutting-edge technology, superior materials, and meticulous craftsmanship. It promises an audio experience that is both powerful and precise, ideal for anyone seeking to immerse themselves in the purity of sound.
