Further information:

Selling my Ayon Audio NW-T/DSD Vacuum Tube Network Transport (RRP $8395). I am the first owner and bought this unit in January 2020. The NW-T is the only vacuum tube based, Pure CLASS A Network Player in production anywhere. It has a warm analog tube sound, it is perfect for any digital file listening. It has the DSD upgrade Kit fitted. The unit has a small scratch on the RH, the rest is perfect.

The NW-T network playe is a new outstanding design which includes a Network-Transport with its “tube buffered digital output stage” and an Analog/Digital converter (ADC). The Network-Transport can be connected with any external DAC or CD-player with a digital input (DAC section). Furthermore its built-in ADC can be used to convert analog signals (e.g. of a phono-stage) into digital signals or into FLAC files respectively and to store them afterwards in an NAS. Special attention was paid to the tube-power supply and the digital output signal, because this digital interface is significantly involved to achieve "analog-magic" sound properties in the external DAC to a large extent. The NW-T was designed to maintain all advantages of a tube (in the power supply as well as in the digital output stage) in combination with streaming. The NW-T uniquely unifies both and offers a new dimension of sound far above its class.

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 & vacuum tube 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.
  • Tube rectification for tube buffered digital output stage
  • 8 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 capacitors
  • High quality special tube sockets with gold pins
  • High quality – RCA, BNC & 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

Hi mate

 

It’s annoying the manual can’t be downloaded without the unit serial. Never seen that before. :( 

 

I have a quick question... with the analog input, is it a fixed volume? 
 

For context, I’m thinking of using it with some powered speakers and running HT bypass via the analog inputs. 
 

Cheers

 

John

... or better yet, do you have a manual you could send me?

Hi Jhsg,

 

I will have a look for the manual and try to scan it for you.

      Hi, 
       
      I'm new, my first post here, sorry if I missed something obvious, but I wonder why Emby isn't mentioned here. I did a search, nothing on Emby or Kodi, which seems odd.
       
      My 2c, I have bought and used many commercial media centres, and had given up on those after many playback and streaming issues some time ago and moved to Kodi.
       But Kodi, just kept having issues, not to mention requiring a fairly powerful box to drive it at decent speeds.
       
      I came across Emby (as it was a supported app on my LG tv) and after trialling it with no success, gave up, and went back to kodi, but more Kodi crashes later, I tried again. With the right playback options set, I now run Emby Server on an SBC (Odroid C2) and it streams everything from my 40TB NAS  to the LG TV, including 4K content in native format(s). The Tv plays then all, including DTS etc sound.
       
      In the movie room I have an AppleTV which also has the Emby App on it, to drive the JVC DLA1 projector and VAF 7.1 system, again, awesome.
       
      So far so good, and the WAF is high.
       
      Surely I'm not the only Emby user here?
