The new Wyred4Sound ICEpower monoblocks and stereo amplifiers are now on demo!

Resolution in the treble is much better than other ICEpower amplifiers that I have heard.” – “Dynamic impact can be startling.” – “… I never get tired of listening to the Wyred 4 Sound ST-1000 stereo amplifier. Every other solid state amplifier under (US)$10,000 has driven me away over a period from one evening to several months by their offenses.” – “It is an extremely high-value amplifier. You got a LOT of performance for your money…” – Review by Jerry on 10audio.com

The Wyred4Sound SX-1000 has won 6moons’ Realsization Award! …where the D class strikes gold is in overall smoothness, neutral tonal balance, low noise and resolution of low-level information. The SX-1000 monos have all that in spades – plus excellent dynamics, transient response and the ability to play loud without compression. Considering what you get for the price, these amps are a terrific value and for me, epitomize what our Realsization Award is about. Definitely one of the most impressive audio bargains around.” – Review with Realsization Award by Paul Candy of 6moons.

“Make no mistake; this is no intermediate amplifier. This is not an amplifier to buy while you’re saving to buy something better at some time in the future.” – “… the Wyred 4 Sound ST 500 comes too damned close to the best out there at a price way too reasonable to be ignored.” – Review by John Potis, Positive Feedback Online.

highfidelitybestproduct08smThe way Ayon Audio’s CD-1 coaxes a superbly refined analog sound from CDs – it almost transforms your CD collection into a vinyl record library! Ayon has set out to design a no-compromise CD player, and the CD-1 strikes an extremely fine balance – its pure Class-A triode vacuum-tube output stage achieves an absolutely non-fatiguing analog sound while revealing every delicate digital detail from your CD’s. The end result? A player with a superbly engaging sound that is more like vinyl records than the usual “politeness” of CD players, especially solid-state ones! Fully designed and built in Austria. 

bluemoonawardThe Ayon Audio CD-1 has won the coveted Blue Moon Award from 6moons! – The CD-1 puts my ears at ease like no CD player I can remember. Not that it lacks energy. Anything but. Yet what it does lack is anything resembling digital glare.– “… in some ways this was better than vinyl. The sound was equally relaxed, smooth and transparent but its power and extension were superior to my vinyl rig.” – Review by Ken Micallef of 6moons.

ICEpower have arrived! A Wyred4Sound amplifier was brought in to power the Emerald Physics CS2 speakers, and the results are breathtaking… not only is this amp capable of big power, it delivers this power in a superbly warm and refined way. Being over 80% power efficient, W4S amps run cool and can be configured with plenty of power (max 7 x 500W in a single chassis!) allowing for generous headroom to comfortably power ANY speaker out there.

“In my time with this amp, I have been in audio heaven. When I review a product, I usually look forward to placing my own equipment back in my rack, but that wasn’t the case here … it’s that good.” Review by David Vaughn, Ultimate AV Magazine

All I can say is WOW!  This is a very well-designed amp, with a BLACK background, excellent control of the speakers, and both bottom end grunt and HF extension that is neither fatiguing or anemic.  In short, credit where credit is due.  The Wyred 4 Sound amp is fantastic and with our tube preamp(s), the combination is phenomenal.” – Comment by Dan Wright

“It’s certainly the smoothest, sweetest ICEpower amp I have heard.” – Owner’s review

“… I was blown away, these amps sound incredible.” – “They are absolutely STUNNING!” – “… I’m astounded.”  – Owners’ feedback on the new monoblocks
