As an option, STREAM to this baby with the ROON Rock RS7 - RS9 Music
Server by USA Labs. Amazing sonic performance, Tidal, Qobuz, DSD &
More! Get all the details, call 1-800-676-1085 Ext 2

Run ROON on any Network Player Streamer, DAC, even if your streamer or DAC is not ROON Compatible!

Intel Core i7



computer/network knowledge needed. Just plug it in! Plug & Play.
Setup video is available & if needed our techs can & will
remotely setup the RS7 for you for Free. All you have to do is connect
the RS7, power it up and we will take it from there, Remotely via
computer. Pretty cool right!

Do not use a computer to stream
your music, computers run dozens of background programs just to keep the
computer up & running. This causes unwanted, noticeable noise in
the signal path.

The RS7 has no Noise, no fans, super fast
instantaneous delivery, huge horsepower for large libraries, no spinning
disks, no moving parts, imbedded operating system, no drivers, all
solid state, runs super COOL, built for high end audio Only! Put it
anywhere, Plug & Play. Solid State drive included.

Product Description

Ayon S-5 XS Network Player


Award Winning! Built on the same platform as the amazing Ayon S-5,
same DNA! The famous S-5, is uncompromisingly built and one of the
best-sounding Network Player Streamer at any price. The S-5 XS
version is the answer and offers many design highlights from its bigger
brother, the S-5. One of the major changes at the S-5 XS is the
power supply system and the tube output stage. We did it very carefully
and the S-5 XS version offers maximum flexibility and a super
sound performance regardless of the price class that you would expect
from an Ayon Audio product.

Features & Design

Full-featured Network Music Player/DAC/Preamp

Pure Class-A triode vacuum-tube output stage for single-ended & balanced operation

Signal Path

We all know that the shortest signal path is the best design. 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.

Power Supply

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.

Three R-Core / Low noise – insulated power transformers for digital & analog separated

Innovative power supply provides a high speed energy delivery on transients

Separate and isolated power supplies over each stage of amplification

AC power line filter to avoid noise and hash from entering into the unit.

Four times tube rectification for tube output stage

Choke with Film caps

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.
