General information [contribute]

Onix Audio web site (March 31, 2010): Thank you for visiting the new ONIX Audio.com. In the next several pages, you'll find some of the most value-packed products currently offered on the home theater market. From our incredible Rocket Loudspeakers, to the elite line of Reference Loudspeakers by Onix, here you'll find something for just about any room, decor, and listening style for novices to audiophiles alike. We hope you enjoy your visit!

Without a doubt, the Rocket speaker system offers not only great performance in both two-channel or multi-channel applications, but more importantly, has extraordinary value. They are smooth sounding with laid-back characteristics, and are pleasing to listen to. If this sounds like the effect you are looking for, then these speakers could win your heart easily. It is true that sound perception is very subjective, but it is hard to deny the excellence of the Rocket build quality.

A giant transformer takes most of the space in the solid cabinet with a black front, which makes the amplifyer look like that of Electrocompaniet. Six lines out is good, and the back has gold plated connections of good quality: The CD player lin out even has WBT contacts of particularly good quality; likewise the loudspeaker terminals are of solid WBT quality. Impressing! The workmanship is in a class by itself.

Some say they look like Sonus Fabers. Others say they look better. Some think they sound like speakers from the U.K. but for way less money. For the customer who wants an amazing amount of high-end audio bang for the buck from an Internet-only speaker, Rocket's RS750 is a lot of speaker for just over $1,000 per pair.

History[contribute]

Onix Audio web site (June 3, 2010): Onix has been created in 1979 by Tony Brady . At first it was like a sort of joke , infact we started in a back room of a Tailor's shop in Brighton with the intention of constructing high quality phono preamplifier .

Few years later the first Onix amplifier OA20 received made a good impression on the market thanks to his great sound and his original design , but especially for the great value for money . This amplifier created a new standard in the design , thanks to the possibility of gene rating a high power with transformers and high quality components . Soon the OA20 model has been improved with a brand new version OA21. This model was having the same style of his daddybut a huger size and was it gave the opportunity of having both mm entry and either mc entry .

With an electric plug placed behind, it was possible to accept soap type feeding introduced in 1984 , improving so the OA21 performances . In 1985 Onix introduced the new model OA22 inspired by the previous one OA21 . The Onix tuner BWD1 has been produced in 1987 , each part was hand assembed , calibrated and moreover were personally tested by Mr. Onyx . The tuner gave a new standard to the Hi-End audiophiles and received a positive approvals in England , French , Germany and USA Onyx conceived the first OA24 amplifier together with his powered amplifier OA601 . This product became famous in 1988 ,it was elegant and was having a formidable sound . In the same year a renewed version has been introduced , an OA601 with a soap feeding system (soap2). Further power amplifier items came out in 1990 and1991 , a OA80 monophonic1 with 100 w power and a OA401 stereo with 50 w power . This last one has been internationally appreciated for his technical peculiarity , sound quality , power and for his great value for money .

After the company purposed a OA31 stereo amplifier , 60 watt power and with very small dimensions , only 430 mm , soon this device became a triumph in the worldwide market . In 1993 Onix made up his first cd player , cd 33 . This model overcame all the Onix wishes , and his range helped to improve the sales in Europe , far east countries and North America . In the beginning of the new millennium ( and with a difficult European market )Onix has been sold to Roger Speakers.

The electrical projects were sensibly reduced to give more attention to the sales of loudspeakers and advice activity ( projects and quality checks on behalf on others )giving more attention to the new Asiatic market . So Onix introduced his first loudspeakers becoming an european leader in China , Taiwan and Japan but losing in this way his prestige in Europe in the field of electric devices projects .

From 1997, since a trade agreement with a Chinese company has been taken up, Onix put a limit on his business in Europe but it increased it in Asia and America when at the end became a top grade choice for his value for money , achieving a lot of awards like the ones obtained from Home Theater and Stereo file'. The revival :In the last month of 2008 , two Onix workers and Company's fans since they were studying at the college , sick of seeing Onix pulled apart from the worldwide market and frustrated of working in a company were money was more important than quality of sound , decided that was the time for Onix to rice up and come back to his roots : so they thought to buy historic models and then they started keeping in touch with ex employers and they reached an agreement with the owner , a Chinese consortium .

Promptly they started working on new products , with the Onix witty remark The best of English planning. The ideal words to describe Onix's products are simplicity , practicality , elegance and convenience . Onix has been created in 1979 by Tony Brady .
