    Geez - that Metroplex demo is SICK!

    If you're from BAD, please add a signature with your affiliation. Thanks...
    Are the modules coming soon?

    Interesting that the 50/50 mentions Fryette and is 6L6 powered whereas the 50 watt head box is EL34 powered and doesn't mention Fryette. I wonder how the poweramps differ, if at all, and I wonder if both can take 6L6 / EL34 / other octal tubes.

    I remember Steven Fryette mentioning how the transformers for poweramps are designed with a type of power tube impedance in mind and varying from that with other tubes provides less than ideal performance and building a poweramp to function with multiple power tube types is an exercise in compromise.

    That being said, I know little about the inner workings of poweramps and I don't know how big of a deal it actually is.

    I understand Steve had a lot to do with the switching and underlying circuitry, so it would affect all the Synergy products.

    I'm curious as to why there isn't a Fryette UL, Aether ect. modules from the break? Just seems kinda strange.

    Why? Steve was a big part of the development effort. You don't think he had enough to do to get this released?

    You have a point there! Maybe down the road at some point there will be some. Maybe even a new Sound City module!

    Just posted to FB by Synergy:

    ----------------
    "REVERSE COMPATIBILITY EXPLAINED.

    One of the engineering feats that took so long in the development of Synergy was figuring out how to enhance the overall modular design, while still making it reverse compatible.

    We felt it would be simply "wrong" to introduce the new Synergy system and tell everyone that once invested in modules and hardware (from Egnater and Randall) that their old gear is now obsolete. So we didn't do that and happy that we were able to pull it off (in style).

    So here is how it works:

    You can use old modules in the SYN1, SYN2, SYN30 and SYN-50 (basically all Synergy hardware).

    You can use Synergy modules in old Randall gear but only one channel of the Synergy module will work (because Randall hardware was based on single channel modules). For those Synergy modules where channel 1 is different than channel 2, we provided a switch on the PCB allowing you to select which channel will engage when used in Randall gear.

    You can use Synergy modules in old Egnater gear such as M4 and MOD50 and both channels will work.

    Best performance of course will be Synergy modules with Synergy hardware. The new modules have the cathode biasing selection switch circuitry which is not present on any previous hardware units.

    We will not work on, service or warranty any old modules or hardware from Randall or Egnater."

    From what I understand both Fryette and Sound City modules are in the works. I'm planning on picking up the Syn30 head, and honestly if the Sound City module was available that's probably the first one I'd pick up!
