ONIX AUDIO is ONIX DNA

Only ever designed in England, and still made in England.

Make time for evolution.

Evolution takes time. Knowledge takes time. Success takes time. Time is money.
Your time and its value is paid back with our evolution.
The ONIX DNA-50, a 100W RMS per channel, integrated amplifier. It has upgradable discrete Vinyl stages with internal consumer upgradable DAC/Bluetooth boards to follow, all with a traditional toroidial power supply. Crafted in a package formed of solid aluminium, that's anodised to AS7003 (aerospace standards).
At 10KG and made of aluminium, 435mm wide, 285mm deep, and still only 45mm high - we have achieved the thinnest amp to date with traditional tech inside. The construction being 100% aluminium creates the ultimate heatsink - eliminating vents that normally cause weakness and reliability issues if in a closed environment.
If the ONIX DNA-50 was made with stainless steel instead of aluminium, it would weigh 32KG.
Not everyone wants a huge audio elephant in their ever decreasing living spaces of today's world. The ONIX DNA-50 can be enclosed or hidden and is capable of taking up to 100KG on the top, such as a large screen TV or other separates. It can be used at any angle with no compromise for function, sound or heat while in use.
The DNA-50 is ultimate evolution of ONIX AUDIO and 30 years of experience. Designed by the same people, using the same know how from years of ONIX AUDIO and the classic OA21s. Creating a signal path and awesome imaging of sound that time and MP3 have forced too many to forget.
This is the new digital world, but we still have analogue ears and we never forgot it.

Hifi Pig (April 2017)

"The DNA-50 amplifier has a real solidity and assuredness that you don’t even bother to seek out its purported strengths or weaknesses, you simply sit back, relax, spin your favourite tunes and be comprehensively drawn right in by the clarity, power and emotion of the music."
