We have fine-tuned the Spirit V again to meet the increased requirements of the KT170 tube. We have strengthened the main power transformer, choke and power supply. In addition to the reinforced power supply and energy management, the driver stage has also been optimized.

With the new facelift, we also installed an analog bias meter and prepared a USB-DAC input as an option. The Spirit V is fast, airy, dynamic and powerful in the deep bass, embedded in a transparent and holographic soundstage, to highlight just a few advantages of this exceptional amplifier. The Spirit V sets a new standard in build quality, sound performance and its timeless design look, a new milestone in its price class. Full-featured pure class-A tube stereo integrated amp or pure power amplifier. Switchable between pentode and triode mode.

Ideal for more difficult loudspeaker loads. 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. We believe that the simplest circuits work best together with the shortest signal path. 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. Power tube and electronic protection circuit system. Simplest direct circuit path for purest musical sound and high reliability.

No solid state devices in the signal path. High current and low impedance design that operates tubes in the best areas their curves. Minimal discrete wiring for optimum signal propagation. Automatic and manual bias adjustment. No followers or buffers in the signal path.

Selector switch engages relays located near RCA jacks to switch all inputs. 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 stages which makes this a pure power source. 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.

2 separate Low noise -insulated power transformers. Power transformers are encased, excellent damped and RFI/EMI shielded. Choke filtered power supply for driver stage and KT150 power amp section. Separate and isolated power supplies over each stage of amplification.

High current filament-regulator for pre and driver tubes. Regulated DC filament supplies with soft start.

AC power line filter to avoid noise and hash from entering into the unit. Auto sequencing - Power on cycle completes in 1 minute. 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. Central one-point star earth grounding. 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. Super-wide bandwidth high performance output transformer. High efficiency with low insertion loss for optimal current and voltage transfer. Multiple tight layering and coupling for extended frequency response. 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. Selected, premium quality passive components used in all applications. High speed & high quality audiophile grade coupling capacitors. Special tube sockets with beryllium-copper spring pins, custom made by Ayon.

High quality - speaker binding posts. High quality - RCA input jack. Neutrik/Swiss - XLR chassis connectors.

Special isolated - internal wiring. Copper matrix - internal signal cable.

The high-grade aluminum chassis impart a richer, more lustrous tonality with a cleaner background 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.

The aluminium feet are resonance absorbing types. All front & rear panel descriptions are engraved.

4 line inputs & 1 direct input - for pure power amp operation. Volume & Mute function - RC. Triode or Pentode mode, Class-A.

10Hz - 60kHz / -3dB. Input sensitivity for full power. Input Impedance at 1 kHz.

3x Line In, 1 x XLR In, 1 x Direct In. Conversion rate for USB-DAC (option). Up to 384kHz / 24 bit & DSD256.
