Ayon Audio CD-10 II CD Player

Ayon is pleased to introduce the CD-10, a new redesign of our already very highly regarded CD-1sx model offering. 

The CD-10 is in many respects a ground-breaking SACD/CD-Player design with an advanced technology like a single-ended triode 6H30 output stage, a new DAC design, an advanced magnetic clamp system and a switchable PCM-DSD converter. This Player is presenting a new level of musical performance with stunning vitality, clarity, natural warmth, superb dynamic contrasts and besides all of them a superb construction quality. 

In this price-range the CD-10 is one of the most innovative and tonal best CD-players ever built in the more than 35-year long CD-history.


Full-featured Tube Top Loader CD-Player

Class-A triode vacuum-tube output stage for single-ended & balanced operation

Signal Path 

We believe that the simplest circuits work best together with the shortest signal path. That is why our pre-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. 

 Power Supply

The power supplies have been further refined with new components and enhanced AC line noise filtration. Separate power transformer windings 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 6H30 output stage. 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.

R-Core / Low noise – insulated power transformer for digital & analog  


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 back-ground 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. 

Additional Options 


PCM-DSD converter for all PCM signals (CD, DAC, USB) High-quality coupling capacitors;
