Ayon-BlackCrane

“ Timeless design, modern elegance and state-of-the-art technology “

A loudspeaker masterpiece with breathtaking musicality, transparency and extraordinary dynamics.

With this flagship the Austrian master craftsmanship made a totally outstanding and a unique three-part cabinet design. A distinctive cabinet with highest level of difficulties (perhaps one of the most difficult to build Plywood-wood cabinet) and perfectly bent all around the wood surfaces. No compromise in research and development guarantees true musical neutrality, depth in imaging revealing the top grade of music reproduction through an audiophile instrument of the highest art. Breath-taking transparency and dynamic linearity is coupled with an excellent deep holographic soundstage. As a matter of course, we selected only finest available materials with superb sound characteristics.


Ayon-BlackEagle

“ Timeless design, modern elegance and outstanding technology “

A loudspeaker masterpiece with breathtaking musicality, transparency and extraordinary Soundstage! 

The BlackEagle is the consistent advancement of the legendary former Ayon ceramic loudspeaker series (Seagull, Hawk, Falcon, and Eagle) anno 2003 – 2010. Only 9 years later with the new ceramic chassis technology we could develop further the loudspeaker decisively mounting ceramic chassis. Implementing specially produced higher impedance ceramic bass-chassis-coils we could draw the overall impedance up and design the acoustic all-over 6dB cross-over much simpler. Also, the improved "almost not damped" elliptical Ayon instrument plywood cabinet (with its unequalled all-around radiating characteristics – by means of the elongated elliptical front plate the sound being carried into the room far and quasi "all around") further contributes to the very easy operation of amplifiers, particularly the lovers of low-powered solid-state, Class-A amps and tube amplifiers could hardly avoid this loudspeaker. 


Ayon-BlackFalcon

“ Timeless design, modern elegance and outstanding technology “

The BlackFalcon is the consistent advancement of the legendary former Ayon ceramic loudspeaker series (Seagull, Hawk, Falcon, and Eagle) anno 2003 – 2010. Only 9 years later with the new ceramic chassis technology we could develop further the loudspeaker decisively mounting ceramic chassis.

Ayon – BlackHeron

“ Timeless design, modern elegance and outstanding technology “

Ayon Audio and Lumen White - Kyara Loudspeakers

Charles Harrison and his lovely wife Susan are the consummate hosts. Charles is the USA distributor for Ayon and Lumen white. There was something special about this room that was extremely warm and welcoming—this included both the hosts and the music. From the moment I took my seat I was quite comfortable if not spellbound.

Bottom line, the sound quality was simply outstanding. I have always admired both product lines, but this year there was a clear jump in performance for this combination. Maybe it was some type of component and room synergy, but I was extremely impressed with the purity and rich harmonic presentation of this system. There was just a natural liquidity and flow that could not be ignored.
I do have some personal experience with the original CD-35 SACD/Preamp/DAC. Already a state of the art contender in its initial release, the Ayon CD-35 HF has now pushed the envelope on digital performance even further. I would love to hear a shoot-out with the new dCS DACs and transports.
Even beyond the sound, the physical design and aesthetics of these components are quite striking. Fit and finish is exemplary. As always, the Lumen white Kyara speakers in particular dazzled the eye and manipulated the heart. Don't just be seduced by the elegance and allure, this system delivered the sonic goods.
