The Synthesis Roma 96DC+ is a 25W Class A stereo integrated amplifier, utilising four high-quality EL34 and two ECC82 valves in the design. Featuring a variety of digital and analogue inputs, including a moving magnet phono stage; it is both a high-end performer and a wholly convenient solution for music lovers.

Presented as a thing of beauty, in the same style as others from the coveted ROMA range, the 96DC+ is something to be treasured. Boasting a sense of craftsmanship and quality that true Italian artisans are famed for, it is also a highly technical device, designed to bring innovation and simplicity to the valve world.

Utilising premium componentry throughout and push-pull valve technology with a pentode power stage, the 25W Class A output is powerful enough to match with a wide variety of loudspeakers. When paired with a suitable set of speakers, it will deliver a complete sound; airy, dynamic, lively and incredibly musical. The purity of human voices and accuracy of instruments is breath-taking, while resolution, transparency and detailed sound are above and beyond that which one would expect from an amplifier of this price. Thanks to Synthesis’ intimate knowledge of proper transformer design, the performance is also completely reliable and consistent.

Bringing absolute convenience to the design, the ROMA 96DC+ features an array of inputs. For analogue sources there are two standard Line (RCA) inputs, as well as a high-quality moving magnet phono stage. On the digital side, by integrating a premium Asahi Kasei AK4495S DAC chip, the included Optical and Coaxial inputs can support high-resolution, 24-bit music sources, while the additional USB input can support PCM data up-to 32-bit / 384kHz and DSD data up-to 5.6MHz, effectively covering every music file available on the market today.

The Synthesis ROMA range is built for the world, but with a spirit that can only come from Italy. The shapes, materials, finish quality and sound are designed to enrich your musical enjoyment. The ROMA 96DC+ is an excellent introduction to this coveted series.

The Roma 96DC+ is sold in the UK with a stylish black aluminium front panel. For other finish options please Contact Us.
