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. Today only few manufacturers still produce tubes for pure audio amplification; one of them is Ayon Audio with its outstanding single-ended triode power tubes (AA32B-S, AA52B-S and AA62B) based on the WE 300B.


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.

"Audiophile" Magazine Review

Mai 2013, Germany

Some review quotes: English Translation

“My goodness; Brad Mehldau’s much heard The Falcon will Fly Again turned into a unsually dramatic experience. The intensity of the soprano sax solo, which comes across as a stroke of genius on the ……xxx amplifier, is multiplied on the Titans. The airflow through the instrument appears even warmer and much more present, real enough to feel it on the skin of your hand. The performance had cultivated a certain elegance, a beautiful gliding past. And while Joshua Redman was visibly shrugging his shoulders, the performance with the Ayon created the impression of a direct embrace. Goodness me, we had never imagined that Redman and Mehldau were communicating so intimately! Whereas the listener normally follows the fingering bar by bar, now the meaning of the runs makes itself heard note for note – an irony here, a bit of an edge or slight acceleration there. Yes, if you want to hear Franz Schubert’s Sonata No. 19 played with completely transparent verve and without pasty emotions or make-believe, you should hear listen to this CD. And if it at all possible, use one of Ayon’s Titans and feed it from the best of sources – because the strengths and weakness of different players are amplified by a few orders of magnitude. So far, only these power triodes open the most delicate and still magnificent crystalline structures, down to individual, highly charged atoms”. “THE TITANS OPEN THE GATES FOR SO FAR UNHEARD EMOTIONAL SOUND”.
