Tron Syren Reference Black Label Preamplifier. *Price reduced*
Very good condition. No box.
The Syren is designed using four carefully divided partitions. These partitions help reduce the disruptive effect of magnetic, mechanical and electrical fields for the critical aspects of the circuit. All the components are oriented spatially to limit interference, and are of the highest quality available. Most are specially made to order and the strip core transformers and chokes are individually hand wound. This guarantees perfect pitch, rich tonal colour, and exposes the subtle timing and harmonic structure of the music, where lesser components corrupt and compress the signal. If you listen to a violin up very close then you can literally hear the harmonious chorus of every tiny resonance, and it is precisely this rich textural musical signature that we are passionate about preserving in combination with the timing and dynamics of the performance, in essence, to deliver the emotion of the music.
The left dial controls inputs (marked RIAA, CD, tuner and AUX) while the right one adjusts volume, with further numbered indents marking zero to nine. At the rear sits a column of single-ended NextGen WBT RCAs. While setting them close together is a mark of concern to keep the signal path as short as possible, it does mean that the cables are stacked without much room.
Reference specification to further improve the musical performance from all your musical sources. The output transformers form a critical stage in the amplification and to further improve the Syren II we have specially developed some unique non-standard core material that we keep as proprietary knowledge and simply refer to as exotic. These exotic core transformers help to lift the musical performance and enhance the vibrancy and intimacy of the music, in a way that just makes everything sound more immediate and tactile. We have been a little surprised, but delighted with how much a change in the core of a transformer can make to the musical performance, and this is why we have spent so long perfecting the materials we use in our exotic cores. Making these in such small quantities has also proved a challenge from some aspects of our sourcing, however we believe it has all been worth it.
This preamplifier contains four tubes (2 x 12AX7s and 2 x 5687s), no EMF or RFI will leak in through the chassis cage to muck up the delicate signal - there are but a few tiny vents at the top of the rear panel. Phono stage can be specified with the following levels of gain:
1) +69dB for cartridges with an output of 0.3mV to 0.7mV.
2) +75dB for cartridges with an output of 0.1mV to 0.3mV.
3) Up to +89dB depending on customers cartridge.
Any of these options can be specified during the ordering process.
The Syren line stage has up to +12dB of gain.
