Ayon Audio Stealth Tube DSD DAC / Preamp

Ayon Audio Stealth DSD DAC / Tube Preamp

Ayon Audio is pleased to introduce the distinguished audiophile “Stealth” DAC. 
The Stealth is also prepared for computer playback and general DSD professional audio use. The dual differential gain stage is composed of 2 high performance tubes per channel. The Stealth DAC features a vastly overrated, high capacity power supply for the analog output stage with tube “bridge” rectification, choke coupling and two oversized power transformers. The sound is powerful with fantastic bass speed, extraordinary dynamic, airy, detailed and holographic. A new vacuum tube based DAC star was born and offers an outstanding price/performance and value.
