Ayon CD-35 HF

Whipped up by the great success of the CD-35 we got more and more requests to launch a special and limited Version of the CD-35, quasi a “digital” machine that is as “analog” as never before. All music lovers who seek the Holy Grail in top analog turntables or reel to reel tape studio master playback, the Ayon CD-35 HF is for you. Many ideas, thoughts, suggestions, and a dedicated assistance of the people of the HighFidelity.pl magazine also were incorporated in the CD-35 HF project. Based upon the existing CD-35 technology every detail was re-examined carefully, refined, high-selected, re-adjusted, and the best-sounding components were implemented at the decisive points of the circuitry. Also, its slightly modified appearance, equipped with additional black elements, underline the exclusivity.

The CD-35 HF reflects a deep magical illumination of space, paired with a dynamic black deployment of power second to none. With its enormous musical representation and its tranquility in detail, also the “long-term listening” is always experienced as being relaxed and inspiring.

Herewith, a new era of digital/analog CD, SACD, DAC reproduction presents itself in the foreground, a masterpiece of the art of sound.

SACD – DAC – Streamer – Pre-amplifier – Volume Control 100% Analog Domain – Vacuum Tube

The Ayon CD-35 HF establishes a new benchmark in SE-Triode vacuum-tube CD/SACD-Player performance by combining a fully balanced PCM-DSD DAC.  The CD-35 HF is also prepared for computer playback and general DSD professional audio use. The CD-35 HF is in many respects a new ground-breaking CD/SACD/DAC Player design with an advanced technology like a new vacuum tube output stage, new magnetic clamp system with separate CD-LID, new DAC design and a switchable PCM-DSD converter (DSP module).  Based on a zero-feedback, pure tube circuit design and a tube rectified power supply, the CD-35 HF reveals the manifold layers of music with utmost transparency while projecting a deep and highly focused 3D soundstage. Sonic signature, that of Studio Master Tape Recording Playback!

The bass is extended and powerful, its midrange pure, liquid and permeated with natural warmth, while the top is extraordinarily clean and finely detailed. This Reference CD/SACD/DAC Player offers an uncompromising quality level in every aspect. The CD-35 HF is one of the most exciting CD/SACD/DAC Player with vacuum-tube output stage and the best sounding CD/SACD/DAC Player that Ayon Audio ever built.

Features & Design

Full-featured Tube Top Loader CD/SACD/DAC Player
Class-A triode vacuum-tube output stage for single-ended & balanced operation

Signal Path
We believe that the simplest circuits work best together with the shortest signal path. That is why our pre-amplifiers to date have used single-ended pure class-A circuitry. 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
●  Warm up function
●  0dB negative feedback  (of any kind)
●  Ultra short signal path
●  Simplest direct circuit path for purest musical sound and high reliability
●  Low output impedance for driving long runs interconnect to an amplifier, and any tube or solid state power amp
●  No solid state devices in the analog tube output (signal path )
●  Minimal discrete wiring for optimum signal propagation
●  No followers or buffers in the signal path
●  No DC servo that degrades the signal
●  High quality parts throughout
●  Fully hand assembled to insure the highest level of craftsmanship
●  Separate analog output stage for left and right channel
●  The volume is controlled in the analogue domain
●  DAC digital input – S/PDIF (RCA) , AES/EBU (XLR), I2S, BNC, USB, 3 x BNC for DSD;
●  Digital output – S/PDIF (RCA)
●  Ultra-low jitter internal clock generator

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 6H30/5687 output stage.

●  2 separate R-Core / Low noise – insulated power transformer for digital & analog
●  Innovative power supply provides a high speed energy delivery on transients
●  Separate and isolated power supplies over each stage of amplification
●  Tube rectification for 6H30/5687 analog output stage
●  Choke filtering for 6H30/5687
●  Regulated DC filament supplies with soft start for 6H30/5687
●  AC power line filter to avoid noise and hash from entering into the unit.
●  10 separate voltage regulators

Components 1% Matched
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 components
●  High quality special tube sockets with gold pins
●  Superior capacitors
●  High quality – RCA & 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.

●  Backlit function buttons
●  Modified suspension system to isolate the SACD/CD-transport from mechanical  vibrations
●  Anti-vibration magnetic CD-clamp system
●  Front panel descriptions are engraved
●  Franc Audio – Ceramic Feet

●  Chassis finish: black
