Ayon S-10 – Vacuum Tube Streamer – Tube Network Player – Volume Control

Manufactured in Austria, in 2011 Ayon Audio has set the benchmark introducing the Ayon S-3. The very first ever vacuum tube based network player with the finest DAC and analog preamplifier.

6 years later, now Ayon presents the next generation vacuum tube network player, the Ayon S-10 and what a network player it is!

Advanced technologies not found in any other network players on the market. The S-10 boasts, ethernet & computer playback, analog preamplifier, PCM/DSD Digital to Analog converter, PCM to DSD converter for all PCM signals, 128 – 256.

The soundstage is organic, holographic, wall to wall three dimensional soundstage. Not harsh or analytical. The Ayon S-10 is upgradeable to future enhancements as well.
