REVIEW WINNER !!!
See the Excellent Review on the Ayon Audio Spirit at Positive FeedBack ..... New Issue!!
“The Ayon Audio Spirit integrated thrilled me"
"It is beautifully built and beautifully engineered” “The Spirit conveyed the ambience of each CD or LP with impressive versatility and range”
“It sounded superb, but in triode it was uncanny: the reach-out-and-touch-it quality” “Percussion was incredible—the most strikingly real reproduction I've heard in my home"
“The finest amplifier I've heard in my system !”

Ayon Audio offers a complete line of high performance audio components.
Naturally flowing curves and sophisticated color schemes characterize the aesthetics of the Ayon Audio line-up, offering a timeless value of understated elegance.
Ayon Audio engineers are established leaders in their respective fields of high-end audio expertise. Our range of activities covers the development of high performance vacuum triode tubes, the design of sonically superior tube preamps, tube power amplifiers, tube CD Players, state of the art cables and advanced technology speaker systems.
Ayon Audio Spirit III - CLASS A
Tube Stereo Integrated Amplifier
60+60 Magnificent Watts RMS in Pentode Mode
40+40 Wats RMS on Triode Mode
Triode or Pentode Tube Amplifier
Pure Class A, Zero Feedback
Made in Austria
Features & Design
Full-featured pure class-A tube stereo integrated amp or pure power amplifier. Switchable between pentode and triode mode. Ideal for difficult loudspeaker loads.
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.
We believe that the simplest circuits work best together with the shortest signal path. 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.
Logical sequenced soft-start power up for extended tube life
Power tube and electronic protection circuit system
0dB negative feedback
Ultra short signal path
Simplest direct circuit path for purest musical sound and high reliability
No solid state devices in the signal path
High current and low impedance design that operates tubes in the best areas of their curves
Minimal discrete wiring for optimum signal propagation
Automatic and manual bias adjustment
No followers or buffers in the signal path
High quality parts throughout
Selector switch engages relays located near RCA jacks to switch all inputs
The power supplies have been further refined with new components and enhanced AC line noise filtration. Separate power transformers, chokes and filters provide total isolation between the input and output stages which makes this a pure power source. We also use electrolytic capacitors with much larger storage capacity to make up for the loss in filtering when using resistors in lieu of inductors.
Low noise –insulated power transformers
Power transformer is encased, excellent damped and RFI/EMI shielded
Innovative power supply provides a high speed energy delivery on transients
Choke filtered power supply
Separate and isolated power supplies over each stage of amplification
High current filament-regulator for pre and driver tubes
Regulated DC filament supplies with soft start
AC power line filter to avoid noise and hash from entering into the unit.
High capacitance energy storage.
Current in-rush limiting
Auto sequencing - Power on cycle completes in 1 minute
Dual Grounding System
The modification of the grounding topology leads to increased rejection of noise from the power supply and other areas. The dual grounding topology used in all of our amplifiers is quite unique to the whole hi-end tube amplification industry. Such extensive topology provides for quieter backdrop for which the music can unfold in its entirety. It further establishes the quick and controlled bass response and the full bodied expression of the high frequency. The ground leg of the signal has not been neglected and given meticulous attention in its implementation. The importance of proper grounding cannot be over emphasized.
Central one-point star earth grounding
Dual grounding system (switchable)
The super-wide bandwidth output transformer’s major strength is that it can deliver the current in the bass, while at the same time maintaining the speed in the high frequencies, dramatically improving the square wave response of the amplifier. The effect is a much more natural and relaxed sound with much better clarity, resolution and fluidity.
Super-wide bandwidth high performance output transformer
High efficiency with low insertion loss for optimal current and voltage transfer
Multiple tight layering and coupling for extended frequency response
Output transformers are sealed with an anti-resonance compound material
The type of parts used therefore must have a synergistic relationship to the circuit they are placed in. It is this relationship of which types of parts to use, that ranks our products apart from the mass. Perfect Synergy!
Selected, premium quality passive components used in all applications
High speed & high quality audiophile grade coupling capacitors
Teflon tube sockets with beryllium- copper spring pins, custom made by Ayon
Ayon – binding posts
High quality – RCA input jack
Neutrik/Swiss - XLR chassis connectors
Teflon isolated - internal wiring

All wiring to the circuit boards is done with the use of special pluggable
pin- connectors. This is done for ease of repair should ever the need arise.
High Grade Speaker Binding Posts
The new Ayon gold plated solid body speaker binding posts provide performance levels that are truly in the very High End. The solid body construction ensures that there is no gap or breach in the flow of electrons. The gold plating provides for superior contact and resistance to oxidation. These binding posts are chosen primarily for their sonic performance, edging out even more expensive counterparts.
The high grade aluminum chassis impart a richer, more lustrous tonality with a cleaner background and less hash and grain. All brushed anodized anti-vibration-resonance and non-magnetic chassis’s are fully hand assembled to insure the highest level of craftsmanship.
Improved heat ventilation chassis
