USA Tube Audio’s demonstration of the new Lumen White 25 Generation 4 speakers driven by Ayon electronics was spectacularly great, with wall-to-wall soundstaging.
Close your eyes and you’d never know that you were in a hotel room.
Ayon Audio distributor USA Tube Audio presented the world premier of several new Ayon products; I’ll cover just the amplification. The system included the Ayon Spheris III preamplifier ($34,500) or alternately, the S-10 Network Streamer/Preamplifier ($8300). The all-tube components, housed in gorgeous chromed chassis, fed a pair of Ayon Orthos XS Gen 4 mono amps which drove the new Lumenwhite White Light 25 Gen 4 Anniversary speakers in one of the show’s best-sounding rooms.

Most Surprising was the stunning Lumenwhite “White Light Anniversary ($69,000).
Lumenwhite White Light “Anniversary”
Do blondes still have more fun? If it’s a wood-veneer finish, Lumenwhite certainly thinks so. It premiered Generation 4 of its famous “White Light” speakers—the White Light Anniversary Reference ($69,000). The Anniversary Reference features the world’s first all-ceramic driver array in a radically advanced “pressure-and-flow-dynamics-optimized cabinet,” with numerous innovative technologies in an all-out assault on the state of the art in reference loudspeaker performance. Sonics were brilliantly fast and open. To my ear Lumenwhite’s latest generation of ceramic transducers was uncolored and possessed terrific dynamic output as well as sensitive micro-gradients. Driving the White Light were all Ayon components including the vacuum-tube CD-35 SACD streamer, S10 vacuum-tube streamer, Spheris tube preamplifier, and Orthos II Gen 4 mono amps.

technical highlights & specification
3 way system with proprietary lumen white port-, loading- and air-damping
drivers, cabinet, crossover and components designed, selected and matched for bestin- class spectrum fidelity, impulse precision, time- and phase-coherence, inter-octave energy balance, signal rise- and settling times and freedom from impulse-memory and signal-shadowing effects.
cabinet constructed from custom made, variable density, multiple tone-woods, instrument-grade plywood. acoustically superior to synthetic, metal and most solid wood enclosures due to its more balanced resonance-spectrum behavior and natural, psycho-acoustic sonic signature. available in numerous premium veneers and custom lacquer finishes.
latest generation, custom designed, advanced ceramic and ceradome driver array : one 1" ceramic or diamond tweeter, one 5" ceramic mid-range driver, three 7.5" ceradome woofers.
all drivers featuring 3d, ideal-acoustic-center dome-geometry optimized for negligible impulse-delay and energy-storage effects. best-in-class, sonically "vanishing" spectrum profile when compared to alternative metal, plastic, polymer- and compound membrane technologies.
novel, next-generation "overhung" motor topology, outperforming prior art, over- and under-hung designs, in high linear excursion at significantly reduced distortion when compared to previous ultra-low distortion driver generations and competing high-end transducer designs.
new, advanced, extended cone excursion spider- and surround technologies eliminate the compression artifacts found at the excursion perimeters in alternative designs.
crossover: purist, proprietary, minimal phase design with best resource allocation custom tailoring of both drivers and x-over to the target performance envelope. switchable impedance correction for tube- and solid state amplification.
