Ayon Audio's Orion

Amplifiers by Ayon Audio

Manufacturer's Description:

"The entrance into high-end tube amplification".

The Orion II represents a dramatic rethinking of vacuum tube based integrated amplifier industrial design while retaining the basic architecture as our highly regarded “Spirit” amplifier.

The Orion II integrated amplifier combines neutrality, realistic dynamics and power projection, true musicality with high resolution.

Perfect finish, elegant discrete design and outstanding sonic performance make the “Orion II” unique, setting a new price-to-value standard in its class.

Features & Design

  • Full-featured pure class-A tube stereo integrated amplifier
  • Switchable between pentode and triode mode
  • KT88 power output tubes
  • Ideal also for more difficult loudspeaker loads

Vacuum Tubes
The choice of signal and power tubes have a significant influence on the sound and hence on the inspiration and joy of listening. This is not only the decision between good and bad tubes but finally the interaction of the different types of tubes and their combination that are used in the various Ayon amplifiers.

Signal Path
We believe that the simplest circuits work best together with the shortest signal path. 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.

Logical sequenced soft-start power up for extended tube life

Power tube and electronic protection circuit system

0dB negative feedback  (of any kind )

Ultra short signal pathSimplest direct circuit path for purest musical sound and high reliability

No solid state devices in the signal path

High current and low impedance design that operates tubes in the best areas their curves

Automatic and manual bias adjustment

No followers or buffers in the signal path

High quality parts throughout

Selector switch engages relays located near RCA jacks to switch all inputs

Power Supply
The power supplies have been further refined with new components and enhanced AC line noise filtration. Separate power transformers, chokes and filters provide total isolation between the input and output stages which makes this a pure power source. 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.

Low noise –insulated power transformers

Power transformer is encased, excellent damped and RFI/EMI shielded

Innovative power supply provides a high speed energy delivery on transients

Choke filtered power supply

Separate and isolated power supplies over each stage of amplification

High current filament-regulator for pre and driver tubes

Regulated DC filament supplies with soft start

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

Current in-rush limiting

Auto sequencing - Power on cycle completes in 1 minute

Output Transformer
The super-wide bandwidth output transformer’s major strength is that it can deliver the current in the bass, while at the same time maintaining the speed in the high frequencies, dramatically improving the square wave response of the amplifier. The effect is a much more natural and relaxed sound with much better clarity, resolution and fluidity.

Super-wide bandwidth high performance output transformer

High efficiency with low insertion loss for optimal current and voltage transfer

Multiple tight layering and coupling for extended frequency response

Output transformers are sealed with an anti-resonance compound material

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,  quality passive components used in all applications

High speed  & high quality audiophile grade coupling capacitors

Special tube sockets with beryllium- copper spring pins, custom made by Ayon
