Tube Integrated Amp Ayon Spirit Enters Fifth Generation

The newest update is supposed to make the famous integrated amplifier "Spirit" from the Austrian tube specialist Ayon even better.

The Spirit, equipped with either KT 150 or KT 170 tubes, now comes in its fifth generation with a new driver stage. This aims to let the Spirit V play sonorously in the lower mids, give it more bite in the bass and an increased fine resolution.

The microprocessor-controlled calibration computer enables the automatic adjustment of the quiescent current of all power tubes by means of "Auto Fix Bias" (AFB), which is supposed to ensure optimal durability with the best performance – without any sound deterioration, as the manufacturer claims. In addition, the Austrian amp allows for switching between triode and pentode operation. Optionally, a high bit-capable USB interface is available for PCM signals up to 32 bits/384 kHz and/or DSD256.

The Spirit V is available immediately* at prices starting from €6750*.

For €4495*, however, the smaller Ayon Scorpio II is now also available*. Its output transformers correspond technically to the larger Ayon models now, also recognizable via the chromed cover pots and the additional indicator. The AFB system and triode/pentode switching are also available in the Scorpio.

*Availability and prices for Germany.
