T.H.E. Show 2019 – Ayon Epsilon Gen 4, Auris and S-10, LumenWhite Kyara Speakers, and BBS Racks

Jason Victor Serinus     –     June 12, 2019

I visited three large rooms on the second floor, and all of them suffered from soft, moveable air walls whose porous surfaces and interior reek havoc with soundwaves and let sound bleed between rooms. If a system played superbly, which was necessary in the extremely large space sponsored by Ayon Audio, Lumenwhite, BBS Audio Racks, and USA Tube Audio, the results were amazing.
Here, we heard different Ayon Electronics—Epsilon Gen 4 Mono Amps ($36,000/pair), Auris preamp ($10,500), and S-10 Network Player used solely as the source ($8800)—arrayed on a 3-shelf BBS Audio Rack ($6995) and connected to Lumenwhite Kyara Speakers ($49,900/pair) by entry-level Synergistic Research Core cabling.

Comment:  Ayon LumenWhite Long Beach Show (by Frank Stevens on June 12, 2019)

WoW – got to clean that ear wax out. We had the 3 day pass, 6 of us went to this show. We visited every room & ballroom. The Ayon/Lumenwhite ballroom was with out a doubt, the best sound of the show. During lunch and visiting other rooms, we spoke with other show goers and I can tell you that Ayon/Lumenwhite was the BUZZ of the show. Everyone I talked to agreed that Ayon was the best, period.
