“Reference Tube CD Player"
The Ayon CD-5s establishes another benchmark in triode vacuum-tube CD-Player performance by combining a true balanced and single-ended tube output stage with tube rectified current sources in the power supply. Based on a zero-feedback, pure tube circuit design, the CD-5s reveals the manifold layers of music with utmost transparency while projecting a deep and highly focused 3D soundstage. Its bass is extended and powerful, its midrange pure, liquid and permeated with natural warmth, while the top is extraordinarily clean and finely detailed.
The CD-5s Reference CD-Player offers an uncompromising quality level in every aspect.
Features & Design
Full-featured tube Top Loader CD-Player with preamp function
Class-A triode vacuum-tube output stage for single-ended & balanced operation
We believe that the simplest circuits work best together with the shortest signal path. That is why our pre-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.
The volume is controlled in the analogue domain
Logical sequenced soft-start power up for extended tube life
Warm up function
0dB negative feedback (of any kind )
Ultra short signal path
Simplest direct circuit path for purest musical sound and high reliability
Low output impedance for driving long runs interconnect to an amplifier, and any tube or solid state power amp
No solid state devices in the analog tube output (signal path )
Minimal discrete wiring for optimum signal propagation
No followers or buffers in the signal path
No DC servo that degrades the signal
High quality parts throughout
Fully hand assembled to insure the highest level of craftsmanship
Separate analog output stage for left and right channel
Burr Brown D/A converter
Upsampling 24bit/192kHz and on/off switchable
Analog input ( RCA & XLR )
USB 24/192kHz input Asynchronous
The power supplies have been further refined with new components and enhanced AC line noise filtration.
Separate power transformer windings and filters provide total isolation between the input and output stage which makes this a pure power source and it is a critical attribute for a 6H30 output stage. 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.
3 separate R-Core / Low noise – insulated power transformer for digital & analog Bridge tube rectification
Dual choke – filtered power supply and coupled with special film caps
Innovative power supply provides a high speed energy delivery on transients
Separate and isolated power supplies over each stage of amplification
Regulated DC filament supplies with soft start for 6H30
AC power line filter to avoid noise and hash from entering into the unit.
10 separate voltage regulators
The type of parts used therefore must have a synergistic relationship to the circuit they are placed in. It is this relationship of which type of part to use where, that ranks our products apart from the mass.
