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



Zero 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.

High speed & high quality coupling capacitors
High quality tube sockets with gold pins
Capacitors ( MKP )
High quality – RCA & XLR jack
Gold-plated industrial grade PCB
