Ayon Audio Scorpio II KT88 Integrated Amplifier

"The entrance into real high-end tube amplification".

The Scorpio represents a dramatic rethinking of economic vacuum tube based integrated amplifier industrial design while retaining the basic architecture as our highly regarded "Spirit" amplifier.

The Scorpio integrated amplifier combines neutrality, realistic dynamics and power projection, true musicality with high resolution.

Perfect finish, elegant discrete design and outstanding sonic performance make the "Scorpio" unique, setting a new price-to-value standard in its class.

Features

  • Full-featured pure class-A tube stereo integrated amplifier
  • Switchable between pentode and triode mode
  • KT88 power output tubes
  • Ideal also for more difficult loudspeaker loads

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.

Signal Path
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.

Power Supply
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.

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.

Components
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.

Mechanical Construction
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.

  • Improved heat ventilation chassis
  • Custom-made machined control knobs
  • The aluminium feet are resonance absorbing types
  • Backlit "ayon" logo
  • All front & rear panel descriptions are engraved
  • 4 line inputs
  • Volume & Mute function - RC
  • Metal remote commander
  • Chassis finish: black / black
