Synthesis: Art in Music

Synthesis is a prestigious Italian manufacturing company dedicated to designing and releasing premium hi-fi electronics, with a particular focus on valve amplifier designs. 

Where many valve amplifiers leave users having to consider only a narrow pool of partnering speakers, Synthesis' use of push-pull designs in particular means most of their range will suitably power a wider variety of modern speakers. Their meticulous attention to detail throughout the design process, targeted selection of only the best components available for the price, vast experience of transformer designs and keen eye for detail push Synthesis to the forefront of the premium home audio market. As a result they boast countless fans and various awards from around the world.

Designed and manufactured in Italy, Synthesis also produce a variety of source equipment and accessories, allowing you to build a full sound system that flows from start to finish with the core principles Synthesis are driven by: exceptional sound with exceptional engineering. Synthesis truly presents the art in music.

Synthesis: A History

Founded by Luigi Lorenzon in 1992, Synthesis is a dynamic and constantly evolving company. From the release of their earliest valve amplifiers, the company have gained a reputation on the hi-fi market as a niche product, in the broadest and most positive sense of the term.

Electronically perfect and aesthetically innovative, with that something special that was lacking (and often still lacks today) in other high end products; elegance and style.

To this day, many audiophiles, while having purchased other amplifiers, will not let go of their NIMIS model (a 15W valve amplifier, now no longer in production), and it was that amplifier that proved to be a turning point for the company as it lead to Synthesis' fame spreading not only in Italy, but all over the world.

The exceptional aesthetics, the constant technological research, and an almost obsessive attention to detail make every single Synthesis amplifier a unique piece. Each unit is entirely made in Italy, in one of the few Italian companies who still carefully make all their products by hand. There's also particular attention paid to the transformers, which is not surprising given that Luigi Lorenzon learned to make transformers in his youth from his father - a founding member of FASEL.

FASEL was created by Lorenzon senior in 1961 and designed transformers for valve amplifiers, rapidly becoming a reference point for the sector as a manufacturer of output transformers, power transformers, and inductors for musical instruments. An output transformer (model 3.370.063) was produced for the EME Thomas Vox company and used in the VOX AC30 model, while the legendary red Fasel inductor was then produced for Dunlop and used in the Cry Baby Wah-Wah pedal.

After inheriting his father's business, Luigi Lorenzon decided to combine his acquired technical knowledge with his love for music and to make a breakthrough by creating the Synthesis company. It is safe to say that, today, Synthesis represents the continuation of 57 years of experience in the field of high end electronics.
