The Synthesis Matrix Digital to Analogue Converter - A new reference in audio realism The Matrix is designed completely in house by Synthesis to represent a new level in audio realism. It represents three years of meticulous work from drawing board to finished item. Why have we taken so long? Because we didn’t want to create a DAC that boasted the worlds most impressive features, or heralded a new level in stereo detail, we didn’t even want it to look like it just landed from Saturn with swages of aluminium and more lights than an oil rig at night.
