Ayon Audio is pleased to introduce the new audiophile “Stratos “ reference DAC.
The Stratos is also prepared for computer playback and general DSD professional audio use. The quad differential gain stage is composed of 2 high-performance tubes per channel. The Stratos DAC features a vastly overrated, high capacity power supply for the analog output stage with tube “bridge” rectification, choke coupling and two oversized power transformers. The sound is powerful with fantastic bass speed, extraordinary dynamic, airy, finely detailed and outstanding 3D holographic. The Stratos offers an uncompromising build and reference sound quality level in every aspect.
