Since its market launch in 2014 the Auris has gained an excellent reputation worldwide and it is one of the rare tube preamps capable of transferring its fabulous tonal characteristics to the best advantage to the rest of the installation or respectively co-impress it. All this caused us to further consequently fine-tune it in the background to make this preamp even more exceptional and put it to the utmost in every detail. We have reworked the output stage, the power supply, the phono stage (new phono re-design) and the quality of the components has been readjusted on the decisive points,
The low Output Impedance purist parallel Single-ended 6H30 circuit topology is using zero dB negative feedback. The Line Gain is customer Switchable, 0dB or +6dB. Therefore, the Auris II preamplifier is also very flexible in combination with any type of power amplifier. Of course, we have retained and even intensified the modular and upgradeable concept. Options unbalanced or fully balanced, Signature version and Phono MM/MC-H, MC option for all varieties. All existing Auris I version preamps can be retrofitted to the newest version II.
This “Reference” preamp represents the highest standard of preamp based on 6H30 design achievement. Excellence in engineering, a special tube rectified power supply and superior premium components provides a special magic to the reproduction of music. The performance of the new Auris II is outstanding, very musical and neutral, transparent and vivid in its presentation. There is a huge space of the recording environment reproduced with uncanny realism. It offers a holographic soundstage previously unavailable at this price class.

“State of the Art & Cost – no – Object”
Timeless beauty – elegant, pure and full of innovative technology
This preamp is inimitable with a unique character. With the Conquistador everything started with a blank sheet of paper. Developing and designing a new project you must think unlimited and scrutinize everything. This way the Conquistador was created and it is a highlight in design and engineering art.
Four AA45 Mesh-triodes of our own proprietary production coupled with the unique quadruple VTC volume control, a special circuit design with four separate tube grid bias drivers, and the shortest thinkable signal path underline this absolutely exceptional concept in the world of preamps.
It’s extremely light-footed and joyful reproduction paired with a big soundstage and full of aura incarnate a very special way of sound deployment. This preamplifier shapes and impresses its magical character on the whole chain of reproduction to an extent that never existed before, a magic putting all listeners under its spell. Exactly those are the subtle differences between the so-called super pre-amps and the Conquistador, a pre-amp turning over a new leaf in the story of preamplifiers. We are convinced that the Conquistador will contribute to the way how the Ayon brand will be perceived in the future.

The NW-T/DSD is a new outstanding Network-Transport design with its “tube buffered digital output stage”. The Network-Transport can be connected with any external DAC or CD-player with a digital input (DAC section). Special attention was paid to the tube-power supply and the digital output signal, because this digital interface is significantly involved to achieve “analog-magic” sound properties in the external DAC to a large extent. The NW-T/DSD was designed to maintain all advantages of a tube (in the power supply as well as in the digital output stage) in combination with streaming. The NW-T/DSD uniquely unifies both and offers a new dimension of sound far above its class.
DSD Upgrade kit for existing NW-T’s 995 Euro
- New rear panel including all DSD outputs
- New DSD main board and MCU.
- Add I25/DoP board
- New DSD Firmware

In 2011 Ayon Audio has set a milestone with the S-3: the first network-player with top-class vacuum-tube technology worldwide, separate DAC section and an analogue preamp section. 6 years later we present the successor S-10 and it was created to embody, in more advanced technologies and very flexible player, all the know-how and expertise acquired developing our reference Network-Player products. The S-10 includes a network player, computer playback, analogue preamp, a world class PCM/DSD Digital to Analog converter and a PCM – DSD converter for all PCM signals that gives an outstanding sound performance that you would expect from an Ayon product. The S-10 is based on a modular platform and can be composed variably. There is a variety of choices available.
Of course, there are again a modern puristic and tonal significantly decisive tube output stage and a newly developed fully symmetrical dual mono DAC.
Its spacious 3D image combined with an enormous agility and stirring reproduction are only a few trademarks unified in this exceptional device.
This tube based network-player represents a new sound performance standard in its price category.
Additional Parts Pricing:
