Description

Heed Obelisk Si MKIII  Integrated Amplifier

To order the Obelisk Si III with optional DAC module or Phono module please CONTACT US

There was a neat shoebox amplifier in the 1980’s which stirred emotions in unsuspecting hifi-freaks and music lovers alike. Sadly, the unbashedly different design of the original Ion Obelisk had become entirely forgotten. Well, almost entirely.

FEATURES

  • 5 analogue inputs
  • optional MM phono or DAC card
  • upgradeable power supply
  • Transcap technology

After two decades of silence, we have resurrected this legendary integrated, updating its exterior aesthetics and internal components. More importantly, however, we challenged ourselves with the demanding task of preserving the classic Obelisk’s absorbing delivery and infectious musicality, while offering even greater transparency, leading-edge detail and more gripping dynamics. Mission accomplished – the Obelisk Si has become a must-hear sensation straight out of the gate.

During the years of evolution, the Obelisk Si showed us the nature of RC-coupled amplifiers. By the designing of the current version of this amp, we have found the solution that describes the magic it creates. Transcap technology is now our main path, which we intend to follow, unaccompanied in the world.

The Obelisk Si III rated at a great healthy 50 watts per channel. Don’t be fooled by the kilowatt amps, this fifty is like a valve-amp fifty. And more, as a Transcap amplifier is rather different in this aspect. With this kind of power the Si is capable of astonishing dynamic authority and massive transients any time. Further on, there are the X2 or X4 power supplies, which converts the Si-system into a preamp/power amp combo with dual mono power amplifiers. Now that’s something classy!

To be more versatile, we have worked out an upgrade card system for some of our devices. The first input of the Si can be transformed into an MM phono input or an S/PDIF digital input via our upgrade cards. If you don’t like the many and more little boxes around you, this highly integrated system is your saviour.
