Omni Gon The Final Phonostage
The two aluminum shipping crates only opened to verify contents. This is the famous Omni Gon Full-function preamplifier that reached out and grabbed Syntax's brain. I was planning to run two listening rooms; however, life sometimes gets in the way. So, this one is available to transform your system...no waiting two years, simply the "best." Bank wire-transfer is the preferred payment method; PayPal, please add the appropriate fees. Thank you for for looking! Pics on the way!
The Omni Gon
(The Final Preamplifier)
Nowhere in the whole chain is the loss of detail so huge, nowhere in the chain the signal is so low...
So a custom made unit was made with the goal to avoid all compromises and cheap parts (they degrade sound). I decided some years ago to listen to low output MC, max 0.3mV and most Phonostages failed. Gain only is not the solution, the mosaic has to be rebuilt step by step to get a sonic picture which is not pale and smeared.
Some record collectors and serious Listeners (RCA Living Stereo, Decca...) wanted the best Phonostage to get what's really in their records. They didn't find something adequate on market what served their demands (No loss of Signal, no coloration, no compression, true tonal color) and decided to build one for themselves, 7 units. With the best parts available, the best technical specs possible, the most advanced RIAA available. Time: 2 years to get all parts and tests.
It is done now.
Ultimate Phono preamplifier w/optional line stage. All triode tube design. Full symmetrical.
Unique passive phono EQ. Each tube with its own independent heater supply.
Unique double mono PS with bridge-type tube rectification (8 single-wave rectifiers - 4 each channel) and pure foil CLC-PS.
100 lbs - dual chassis, my 5 Phono inputs (50dB, 62dB, 68dB, 72dB, 77dB pure Phono gain), Output AES Studio specification. No- loss-of-Signal-Parts, the best out there (TKD, Silver plugs, Tubes from US Army rocket defensive stations, Silver soldered, Tantal, Caddock, all Parts internal decoupled via Electron microscope devices...)
Result: Superior Detail, accurate specs, no coloration and lifelike Reproduction.The sound ?
Well, it is no longer about sound.
Dynamics, colors, soundstage, 3-dimensionality - yes, all that and much more. But it goes a few significant steps beyond that. Imagine opening the windows of your room on a clear early summer morning. A breeze of fresh air comes in.
Then go further in your imagination and tear down the walls of your listening room. All a sudden there is fresh air, the warmth of sun rays on your skin, a world of color, beauty and a flood of details around you.
Touching your senses - with brute directness, unfiltered, unaltered. Involving, dramatic, breathtaking and demanding.
Nothing between you and the nature.
You can no longer move your attention away from the music. VERY different from anything else I have ever heard - anywhere.
