The Triton II is Ayon Audio's most powerful integrated amplifier featuring pentode (125w/ch) or triode (80w/ch) operation with KT88 tubes. The extensive updates include a revised power supply and power transformers, intelligent automatic bias adjustment system and upgraded electronic components. The result is a significant advance in sonic performance, wider and deeper soundstage with greatly improved powerful bass punch and dynamics. Musical finesse and superb powerful performance has been combined without compromise into one convenient chassis and affordable pricing.
Ayon Audio's amplifiers are Class A designs with no negative feedback!! Interestingly, in an article written in an engineering journal, the IEEE Spectrum (not a high-end magazine), it was said about tubes v.s. solid state: "There is no way around it: linear [triode] vacuum tubes have lower overall distortion than bipolar transistors or FETs, and the distortion products are primarily lower-order...the clipping characteristic of tubes is actually not much softer than transistors, but feedback tends to 'square-up' the clipping. Thus, the heavy feedback in most solid-state designs gives them worse overload performance."... AND, ""A low- or no-feedback design can be driven harder without audible distortion." "High feedback also can lead to transient intermodulation distortion (TIM), caused by clipping or slew-rate limiting within the feedback loop."
