Sped Control: The electronic control 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 allowing increments/decrements of +/-0.01% of the selected speed.
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.
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. Utilising premium grade electronic components, the amplification is provided by individually selected and matched bipolar transistors combined with high end quality capacitors and precision MELF (Metal Electrode Leadless Face) resistors. The MC input transformers are designed, engineered and wound in-house by Nagra, benefitting from the company’s unique experience in this precision field. Connected to the tonearm by Crystal Cable, this drastically reduces unwanted interference to the sensitive signal. 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.
