AYON Spitfire SET Tubes Amplifier

Article code: BU01

AYON Spitfire SET Tubes Amplifier

The Ayon Spitfire is using similar technologies of our famous “Crossfire” amplifier. It exhibits all well known Ayon magic and qualities. This amplifier offers exceptional tonal neutrality, high resolution and punchy-airy timbre with great musical sweetness. A quick uncoloured and powerful bass and a spacious 3D soundstage are self-evident for this remarkable amp. This accurate engineering, superior aesthetic form and fantastic price value makes the Spitfire unique on the high-powered single-ended market.

Full-featured single-ended tube stereo integrated amp or pure power amplifier.
SE - pure Class-A triode vacuum tube-circuit design.
AA62B Power output tubes high peak current & high voltage delivery.
Ideal also for more difficult loudspeaker loads.

Can be auditioned in our Rotterdam showroom !

Vacuum Tubes
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. Today only few manufacturers still produce tubes for pure audio amplification; one of them is Ayon Audio with its outstanding single-ended triode power tubes (AA32B-S, AA52B-S and AA62B) based on the WE 300B.

Signal Path
We believe that the simplest circuits work best together with the shortest signal path. That is why our SE-Triode 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.

High quality parts throughout 
Selector switch engages relays located near RCA jacks to switch all inputs

Power Supply
Single ended amps are more susceptible to power supply aberrations than push-pull amplifiers. 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 stage which makes this a pure power source and it is a critical attribute for a single-ended amplifier. 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.

Dual Grounding System
The modification of the grounding topology leads to increased rejection of noise from the power supply and other areas. The dual grounding topology used in all of our amplifiers is quite unique to the whole hi-end tube amplification industry. Such extensive topology provides for quieter backdrop for which the music can unfold in its entirety. It further establishes the quick and controlled bass response and the full bodied expression of the high frequency. The ground leg of the signal has not been neglected and given meticulous attention in its implementation. The importance of proper grounding cannot be over emphasized.

Output Transformer
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.

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.
