In the Triton II, Ayon drove inconceivable expenses: up to an extra transformer for the tube filaments. stereoplay checks whether the also has paid off.

  2. Data sheet

Something happens! In issue 5/06 an Ayon tube as an insider tip from an Austrian niche had touted stereoplay. Now we enter ayonaudio in the search engine and need to see that there are 42 countries Ayon distributors. The company produces more and more at home – their Hong Kong-related work bench basically only cares about harnesses and casing panels. But her ambition knows no bounds.

It is easy to see on the Triton II, the Ayon not with a 08/15-, but with special tubes placement offers. And for 6000 euros with a total of eight ore strong KT 120 of the Russian manufacturer of Tung-Sol. Or for 6300 Euro with an octet of KT 88 Black Treasure. It provides but not quite as much power.

Ayon overturned outright, making a probably unique comfortable home the beautiful Chinese women with the Triton II. With sockets that hold their connecting pins intimately about beryllium copper springs.

The tubes feel also, because the preparatory work thanks to the efforts of dedicated driver tubes – livelihood tubes control or not – yet accurately manage even when an unexpected electron storm. And even more – as it does Ayon – originally produced for the military and taking bearing JAN Philips twin triode (Joint Army Navy). Then the Triton II like no one else has a robust, protected by a chrome hood Extratrafoof nothing else serves as the homey balanced cathode heating.

Therefore, Ayon is not saved when the main power transformer, accompanied right and left by gigantic encapsulated output transformers. After the rectification, four electrolytic capacitors preparing the high-voltage (with two 450-Volt-Rubycon types in series). Each amplifier channel smooth and clean then an iron core inductor and capacitors a further 220 micro Farad the supply potential. A choke coil and four come again for the input circuits (105 degree fixed) to 220.

That looks after Gigantomania and serves only a higher purpose. The exalted cleanliness and stability allowed it to forego – an else like used reading cosmetics, the acoustic effect of which describes Ayon Chief Gerhard Shepherd without further ADO any negative feedback loop in the circuit: “it will be lifeless, it no longer sounds!”

So far, it should never come at the Ayon. Therefore, Hirt aging Black Treasure and also has considered one day mature tube replacement. Much like in the spirit III Ayon opts for a quiescent current electronics, which is not about sound toxic during music playback, but only after specific prompt. In the case of Triton II she is seeking more fine tuning, reads the current import values during a discreet off-delay -, remembers them studiously and pretends to start the next listening session.

The Triton II features a diverse protection, revealed the daring user through a Rappeln of various relays and a forced break. Otherwise the black treasure Triton showed the testers love to, what is a rake. A semi-acoustic guitar in Lee Ritenours album “6 string theory” for example appeared not as a toy, but as an instrument that–while it creaks in the wooden body – mighty can spew sparks and fire.

Ayon-centric not above, but rather below the acoustic focus. The bass were angry and break down into the blackness. Always deep-colored colorful, moving and robust but remained with healer, elastic skin.

When travelling through this guitar worlds, the Triton II – provided wonderful corporeal and clear substance richer than the spirit III – for maximum enjoyment. He does not knapste jazz singing also in Ulita Knaus’. There was not a thin lip-sensitive soul, but a respektgebietende woman who sometimes sweating under the blouse, which can impress also with melancholy and seriousness.

Maybe the Triton with piano of still pearly, smooth, would have to not as string in love Act. But the bottom line is: for all those who prefer hearty, Ayon offers exactly the right also with the Triton II.
