“State of the Art & Cost - no - Object”
Timeless beauty - elegant, pure and full of innovative technology
This preamp is inimitable with a unique character. With the Conquistador everything started with a blank sheet of paper. Developing and designing a new project you must think unlimited and scrutinize everything. This way the Conquistador was created and it is a highlight in design and engineering art.
Four AA45 Mesh-triodes of our own proprietary production coupled with the unique quadruple VTC volume control, a special circuit design with four separate tube grid bias drivers, and the shortest thinkable signal path underline this absolutely exceptional concept in the world of preamps.
It’s extremely light-footed and joyful reproduction paired with a big soundstage and full of aura incarnate a very special way of sound deployment. This preamplifier shapes and impresses its magical character on the whole chain of reproduction to an extent that never existed before, a magic putting all listeners under its spell. Exactly those are the subtle differences between the so-called super pre-amps and the Conquistador, a pre-amp turning over a new leaf in the story of preamplifiers. We are convinced that the Conquistador will contribute to the way how the Ayon brand will be perceived in the future.
