Ayon Audio Spark III Integrated Amplifier

Quick Overview

Ayon Audio Spark III Integrated Amplifier

Ayon is pleased to introduce the Spark III, a substantial advancement of our already highly regarded Spark II model offering. The Spark III is our “superb value” single-ended triode integrated vacuum tube amplifier for real music lovers. Low distortion, outstanding dynamics, holographic soundstage, detailed, fast and precise low frequency performance.

We have increased the power supply energy storage to over three times and incl. an auto bias system for the 6C33. The advantage is more transparent and livelier reproduction of musical performance.

Full-featured single-ended tube stereo integrated amp or pure power amplifier
PSE - pure Class-A triode vacuum tube-circuit design
The 6C33 tubes are ideal for audio power application due to their low plate impedance and high current capability.
Ideal also for more difficult loudspeaker loads

Vacuum Tubes
The choice of signal and power tubes have a significant influence on the sound and hence on the inspiration and joy of listening. This is not only the decision between good and bad tubes but finally the interaction of the different types of tubes and their combination that are used in the various Ayon amplifiers.

Signal Path
We believe that the simplest circuits work best together with the shortest signal path. That is why our SE-Triode amplifiers to date have used single-ended pure class-A circuitry. The shorter the signal path is, the less possibility of sonic degradation from various sources, including the wire itself. Even on the circuit boards, the copper traces are kept to a very minimum length. The completely redesigned circuit board provides a more straightforward and direct approach to the signal paths.

"STEREOPLAY" Magazine Review

December 2014, Germany

Some review quotes: English Translation
A real stunner; also the sound of the strict single-ended amp is typical Ayon and triodes: earthy, three-dimensionally large, colorful, well defined, much more powerful than you would assume looking at the data and not without the smooth natural sound of good tube amplifiers.

With uncomplicated efficient loudspeakers also the insistent always lively gruff dynamics remain.

-Outstanding value for money-
