At the international audio exhibition, which will be held at the Grand Hotel in Taipei from December 14 to 17, the Italian brand Synthesis will present a new single-ended tube integrated amplifier Synthesis FCO -300 B , made in the dual mono concept. The output stages of the new product are implemented on the famous 300 B direct-heated triodes and operate in pure class A.
Luigi Lorenzon of Synthesis notes: “We designed and built this amplifier for high-sensitivity acoustics, aiming for accurate and impressive reproduction of all genres of music. With the Synthesis FCO -300 B we were able to achieve the musicality we were looking for: dynamics, control and high power output . “
The pre-stages of the Synthesis FCO-300B amplifier are implemented using 12AU7 and 12AX7 dual triodes. A 6CG7 double triode operates as a driver tube, and a 5U4G kenotron is used in the power supply. The amplifier’s output stages are implemented using 300B direct-heat triodes from Electro-Harmonix.
The power supply for the Synthesis FCO-300B amplifier is based on a high-power toroidal transformer. Output transformers are double C-core and have separate terminals for connecting 4 and 8 ohm speaker systems. The amplifier has an automatic Bias adjustment system.
The Synthesis FCO-300B tube amplifier is housed in a durable metal body in dark gray with a silver anodized aluminum front panel. The amplifier comes with a remote control that allows you not only to adjust the volume level and select the active input, but also to activate the Mute mode and control the power.
