Synthesis, the long-established Italian manufacturer of top-quality hi-fi electronics, is enriching it's ROMA series line-up with a new 80W tube mono power amplifier; the ROMA 98DC. This mono amplifier brings the superb sonic performance and high power thanks to a pair of KT88 tubes in an ultra-linear configuration.
With an iconic and powerful aesthetic and sound, the ROMA 98DC is even capable of driving the most difficult or 'hungry' speakers, offering a pure and clean sound no matter your set-up.

The core of this capable power amplifier is the output transformer which, entirely made by Synthesis themselves, boasts a particularly wide frequency response and very low distortion, even when being pushed to higher powers. This power can be viewed directly on the front panel of the unit, where a gauge and needle sit pride of place, illustrating the entire amplifier power range - allowing you to monitor and tweak your set-up as needed, for optimum performance.

Weighing in at 16kg per mono amplifier the ROMA 98DC is an undeniable powerhouse, intended for serious systems, and those who care deeply for quality hi-fi reproduction. The ROMA 98DC is available in 6 stunning finishes to give you the best choice of styling when matching your existing home decor.
