Comprising of a completely new turntable design combined with the highly acclaimed SME Series IV tonearm, Ortofon’s ‘exclusive series’ MC Windfeld Ti cartridge and a specially designed phono stage by NAGRA, all coupled with mono crystal silver wire by Crystal Cable. Synergy’s design is compact, sleek, modern and instantly recognisable as SME. Incorporating precision engineered components, high attention to detail and the craftsmanship that SME is globally renowned for, above all Synergy delivers an extraordinary vinyl listening musical experience.
• Natural, Open and Dynamic Sound
• High Mass and Small Footprint
• Crystal Cable Audio Lead and Internal Wiring
• Nagra Built-In Switchable Phono
• Ortofon MC Windfeld Ti Cartridge
• Factory Configured with Minimal Set Up
Fitted and factory set for immediate use, Synergy comes complete with Ortofon’s ‘exclusive series’ MC Windfeld Ti moving coil cartridge. A low output impedance of 7 ohm and a medium output voltage of 0.2 mV makes this high calibre cartridge the perfect partner for Synergy’s integrated phono pre-amp.
POWER SUPPLY UNIT
The power supply unit uses a high-performance microprocessor, optimised for motor control. Closed loop speed control is implemented using a proportional plus integral (PI) algorithm. Speed ranges are 33.3, 45 & 78 rpm, with fine pitch speed adjustment.
The electronic control circuitry and power supply unit are housed in an external one-piece CNC machined case. This new design offers complete isolation and support and is the perfect environment for the electronics. Speed selection controls are mounted on the front facia panel with LED indicators.
Based on the renowned SME Series IV, Synergy’s tonearm uses the same unique one-piece pressure die-cast magnesium arm tube. Internally damped to be acoustically inert, it is mounted on a precision yoke housing with 10mm ball bearing races. This unique SME assembly gives high rigidity and allows the bearings to be critically adjusted before the tonearm is installed to the turntable. The yoke is mounted to the 23mm diameter heat treated, ground and honed steel pillar, with a pair of 17mm ball bearing races that are widely spaced to resist tilt.
NAGRA PHONO STAGE
Housed within Synergy’s main chassis, the ultra-compact phono stage is specially developed for Synergy by NAGRA. The phono stage is 12v with an external Nagra power unit, offering complete separation from other power sources. The NAGRA phono stage comes factory configured, set up and matched with the highly acclaimed Ortofon MC Windfeld Ti cartridge. The built-in phono stage resistor values are fully adjustable should the user want to change the cartridge type at a future date.
CRYSTAL CABLE WIRING
Synergy is equipped with a premium grade signal cable from Crystal Cable which is installed inside the tonearm, connected to phono stage and coupled with the cartridge. Pure mono- crystal silver conductors in miniature format. Providing precious metal in its most pure version, lifting the musical performance to a higher level.
