Synthesis A50 Taurus Integrated Stereo Tube Amplifier
The Synthesis A50 Taurus Integrated Stereo Tube Amplifier is a masterful combination of advanced technology and high-quality craftsmanship, aimed at delivering an exceptional audio experience. This product, a part of the acclaimed ACTION series, is a testament to the commitment to audio excellence.
At the heart of the A50 Taurus is its power output, driven by four KT88/6550 tubes in an Ultra-Linear (UL) push/pull operation. This setup ensures a robust output translating to 50 W per channel. This power is not just about volume; it’s about depth and clarity, which is evident in the rich sound stage and authoritative presence that this amplifier brings to any audio it reproduces.
One of the standout features of the A50 Taurus is its onboard 24 bit 192 kHz Wolfson DAC. This inclusion marks a first for the series and is a significant enhancement, ensuring that listeners enjoy exceptional sonic performance from digital sources. This digital-to-analog converter elevates the listening experience, making it not just auditory but almost tangible in its realism.
The design of the A50 Taurus pays meticulous attention to reducing noise, a crucial aspect for any high-quality audio equipment. This is achieved through DC powered tube heaters, with stabilized circuits for all tubes except the KT88/6550, to minimize hum noise to nearly inaudible levels. This technology ensures that the sound produced is as pure and clear as possible, free from any unwanted background noise.
The construction of the A50 Taurus is equally impressive. The mechanical chassis is designed with an extremely rigid “H” structure, holding the power supply and output transformers. This structure plays a vital role in keeping the unit free from unwanted vibrations, further contributing to the reduction of noise and enhancing the overall sound quality.
In addition to its structural integrity, the A50 Taurus features gold-plated professional binding posts and ceramic sockets. These components are not just about aesthetics; they ensure an oxidation-free connection, continuously improving the sound refinement. This level of detail in the construction underscores the commitment to providing a superior audio experience.
When it comes to the selection of components, only the best are considered for the A50 Taurus. Each component undergoes a rigorous analysis of its sonic influence before being selected, ensuring that every aspect of the amplifier contributes positively to the audio output. This careful selection extends to the tubes used in the amplifier. Each tube is chosen after a two-stage warm-up process and is fully computer-monitored to ensure they are perfectly matched, maintaining balance and harmony in the sound produced.
The A50 Taurus is not just an amplifier; it’s a sophisticated blend of research, experience, and a passion for audio excellence. It is designed without compromise, aiming for a rich sound and faithful music reproduction that can satisfy even the most discerning listeners.
