The 2017 Los Angeles Audio Show - The Absolute Sound

Robert Harley on Electronics

RH’s Best of Show

Best Sound (cost no object)


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
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.

Ayon Audio Orthos Mono Block Amplifiers - Made In Austria 
400 Watts Per Mono Block -  

Class A

Granting Audiophiles around the globe, balance, clarity, perspective, dynamics, bloom, decay...The entire musical message for over 25 years.

Ayon Audio offers a complete line of high performance audio components.

Naturally flowing curves and sophisticated color schemes characterize the aesthetics of the Ayon Audio line-up, offering a timeless value of understated elegance.

Ayon Audio engineers are established leaders in their respective fields of high-end audio expertise. Our range of activities covers the development of high performance vacuum triode tubes, the design of sonically superior tube preamps, tube power amplifiers, tube CD Players, tube DAC's, state of the art cables and advanced technology speaker systems.

The Ayon Audio Orthos Mono Block Amplifiers offer a true balanced operation or Single Ended Operation delivering more than 400 Watts Per Mono Block.  

The Ayon Orthos have the ability to also drive difficult loads with effortless power. The solid deep bass with the high dynamic power, life-like realism and frequency extension open a new sound performance quality.

Balance, clarity, perspective, dynamics, bloom, decay,.... the entire musical message.

Pure Class A

You will marvel at their construction and engineering. Whatever kind of music you play on the Ayon Orthos; this SET dual mono block Tube Amplifier will keep up regardless, we guarantee this to you.  

The resolution is simply world class.

The Ayon Audio Orthos, lets you hear all of the transient details of the music. You can also hear the full harmonic bloom of the instruments and their VERY long decay. What is more, these elements emerge within a truly natural perspective—they never run over each other and smear the sound.

Very few amplifiers can walk this kind of fine line, Ayon Audio has engineered the Ayon Orthos to push the envelope to the maximum in technological design.  

This dual mono block amplifier delivers all the speed, resolution, dynamic energy and bass control of the best solid state amplifiers, but retains the tonal and spatial sweet sound of a world class tube amplifier like none other.

Visceral Bass, Warm Fluid Mids, Super Smooth Highs.

The bias setting controls the current, thereby the operating point of the tube and therefore is vital for its 
lifetime and sound.  

With the bias the power amp can be tuned to cooler/cleaner or hotter/more impure; 
in the latter case the amp has more punch and can be overdriven more easily. However, too high a bias 
leads to faster wear of the tubes.

For tube amplifiers an "automatic" bias control of the power tubes 
would be advantageous because differences, aging, or voltage shifting could be compensated more 
easily or reliably. Furthermore the customer needs not care whether setting of the bias value is correct. 
Unfortunately, this desirable automatic device has serious disadvantages such as significant deterioration 
of sound and power.

Creating a new automatic "fixed bias" circuit controlling the operating conditions of 
the power tubes reliably in the specified way WITHOUT negative influence on the sound or output power 
respectively was a very serious challenge for the Ayon development team.  

This intelligent Auto-Fixed-Bias system must not be mistaken for a semi-automatic or so called fully 
automatic bias fixture which can never achieve a result comparable with the new Ayon Auto-Fixed-Bias 
circuit. The Ayon Auto-Fixed-Bias circuitry delivers the best possible combination of sound properties, 
measured power and usability because it does not operate during music listening. This system does not 
result in deterioration of sound, loss of output power, or any other negative concomitants.

Additionally the Auto-Fixed-Bias system is equipped with a sophisticated electronic two-way-protection 
circuit which is always active during the tube test program or the switch-on period respectively. 
In case of excessive bias current or a defective tube the high voltage is switched off immediately either 
by a photo coupler controlled "over-current-sensor" or by an analog-digital-converter.  

These protection 
circuits do not lie in the signal path.
