Ayon Scorpio and S-3 Junior – part 1 premium
The Scorpio has a pleasant ripeness but without sounding warm. In fact, it sounds purer and more lifelike than various other tube amps that I tried. It is my new reference in its price class, and considerably beyond.

Line Magnetic LM-88IA, LM-150IA, LM-845IA, LM-805IA and LM-845 Premium – part 5 premium
When I first learned of the Line Magnetic brand, I got excited right away. These are amps with attitude, proud of what they are. Then, when I discovered that the brand employs a wide range of tube configurations, I got even more excited. So, in order to make a nice showcase of the Line Magnetic brand and a good cross-section of their lineup, I set out to review a representative range of amplifiers using various tube types.

Ayon Stealth DAC and CD-T II Signature CD Transport premium
There is no way around it. The Ayon Stealth DAC/Preamp and CD-T II transport play with a level of musical involvement not matched by any solid state combination that I tried so far.
