No, we do not use ultra-linear/triode operation – Inferior for High End Audio

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/Triode 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!

Ayon Scorpio Tube Integrated Amp -Pure Class A

The Legacy models, previous models to the New Ayon Scorpio proved to be the best selling vacuum tube integrated amps, globally!

The Ayon Orion, Ayon Orion II and the really super nice Ayon Orion III with the crazy good intelligent auto bias and vacuum tube monitoring system, which not only auto biases the vacuum tubes, but will also detect and notify the owner that a vacuum tube is misbehaving and should be replaced, were the best sellers globally.

No other high end audio vacuum tube manufacturer has this type of really helpful feature that prevents damage to the amplifier from a spitty tube!

Now Ayon introduces their New Ayon Scorpio, Manufactured in the EU –

WoW – what a beautiful sounding amp! No other vacuum tube amplifier in this price category touts, Pure Class A in Pentode & Triode mode.

No Ultralinear operation, you do not want ultralinear operation, high distortion, high power output which looks good on paper, but the amp is driven hard, not as reliable as well, not to mention the sound is inferior. Ok all owners that have an ultralinear amp, please don’t email me!

The Ayon Scorpio also has the auto bias, plus the aforementioned crazy good intelligent vacuum tube monitoring system. Makes owning a vacuum tube amplifier a real pleasure.

So what does the Ayon Scorpio integrated sound like. Amazing – refined, organic, zero feed back – no noise, three dimensional, low damping makes for a fast tight bass, warm fluid mids, super smooth highs. Built like a tank and elegant. Superb build – what you will always get from the folks in Austria, Germany – where the amp is made.


Features & Design

Pure class A tube stereo integrated amplifier
Pentode and Triode mode
KT88 vacuum tubes & 12AU7 tubes
Perfect for difficult loudspeaker loads

Vacuum Tubes
The Ayon Scorpio is designed specifically and fine tuned to the KT-88 vacuum tube. A finely tuned machine for the KT-88 tube only. The signal tubes, the 12AU7 tubes are NOS as well. Very Nice Touch.

Signal Path

The shortest signal paths delivers the best performance. That is how Ayon designs their gear! Pure Class A ONLY.

  1. Gary

    Simply the best yet after many tries!
    Paired with the correct speakers you could spend allot more and not get close.
    Thank you Paul, i am glad i took your advisement!
    How good is this amp?
    Good enough that i am considering an Ayon CD machine.
    The reviews ,in this case are conservative the amp is supremely excellent in all ways.
