Ayon S-3

csm_S3_Hptfoto_cca818ee81.jpg

The S-3 is a ground-breaking design and this ultimate combination of modern new design and time proven concepts, will deliver music and superb sound performance that you would expect from an Ayon product with maximum home audio flexibility. The S-3 includes a network player, analog preamplifier and a world class D/A-converter that gives the highest obtainable performance.

 

Features & Design

Full-featured Network Music Player/DAC/Preamp
Class-A triode vacuum-tube output stage for single-ended & balanced operation

 

Signal Path
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.
 

Network Player

  • 1 pair Tape out ( RCA )
  • Separate Display for Network-Player and Volume/ Inputs                                                                                                                               

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.

 

 

  • Dual 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.
  • Dual tube rectification for 6H30 analog output stage 
  • Choke with Film caps 
  • 10 separate voltage regulators

Components
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.

 

 

  • Selected, premium quality passive components used in all applications
  • High speed & high quality audiophile grade coupling capacitors
  • High quality Special tube sockets with gold pins
  • Capacitors ( MKP 2% )
  • High quality – RCA & XLR jack
  • Gold-plated industrial grade PCB

Mechanical Construction
The high grade aluminum chassis impart a richer, more lustrous tonality with a cleaner back-ground and less hash and grain. All brushed anodized anti-vibration-resonance and non-magnetic chassis’s are fully hand assembled to insure the highest level of craftsmanship.

 

  • AC phase polarity control indicator
  • The aluminium feet are resonance absorbing types
  • Metal remote commander
  • Chassis finish: black / chrome
