NO Ultra-Linear/Triode Operation – You do not want this mode of operation in your Tube Amp!
The Holy Grail is Pentode/Triode Pure Class A
No, we do not use ultra-linear/triode operation – Inferior for High End
Ultra-linear electronic circuits are those used to couple a tetrode/triode or pentode
vacuum-tube to a load (e.g. to a loudspeaker).
‘Ultra-linear’ is also know as ‘distributed loading’; a circuit technique patented by
Alan Blumlein in 1937. Ultra-Linear “distributed loading” was intended
for guitar amps, etc.
• In pentode or triode, in which the
screen-grid is connected to a stable DC voltage so there are no signal
variations on the screen-grid (i.e. the screen-grid has 0% of the
plate’s output signal impressed on it), or
• In triode, in
which the screen-grid is connected to the plate (i.e. the screen-grid
has 100% of the plate’s output signal voltage impressed on it), or
• a blend of triode and pentode, in which the screen-grid has a
percentage (between 0% and 100%) of the plate’s output signal impressed
on it. This is the basis of the Ultra-Linear “distributed load circuit”
and is seen as a form of feedback, which alters the behavior of the
electron stream passing from cathode to anode.
Ultra-linear introduces negative feedback, which squashes and compresses the sonic performance.
So the Pentode/Triode operation will yield a vastly superior response and
more of a “tactile” or SET sound, more of a three dimensional sonic
signature. Quite Superior!
Reviewers say: “Better Than Vinyl”

“The Ayon Audio Spirit integrated thrilled me”
“It is beautifully built and beautifully engineered” “The Spirit conveyed the ambience of each CD or LP with impressive versatility and range”
“It sounded superb, but in triode it was uncanny: the reach-out-and-touch-it quality” “Percussion was incredible—the most strikingly real reproduction I’ve heard in my home”
“The finest amplifier I’ve heard in my system !”

Ideal also for more difficult loudspeaker loads
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.
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
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
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.
