AYON Polaris III Preamplifier
This full-function preamplifier’s highlights include outstanding three-dimensional
imaging and endless layering coupled with no fatiguing, reference-quality transient
delivery. Instruments seem to “pop up” from nowhere. The phonostage dazzles with
liquidity and detail, plus it offers the ability to play low-output moving coils with
absolutely no noise. Reviewed by PB in this issue.
