Audion - A Sound Investment

Audion Today

At Audion, we specialize in manufacturing high-end, handmade, and predominantly hard-wired ‘Class A’ valve amplifiers, pre-amplifiers, and electronics designed for home or office use. Our research, design, and development efforts culminate in over 30 distinct ‘Class A’ analogue audio amplifiers, all meticulously crafted at our custom manufacturing facility in the picturesque wine-growing artisanal region of Bordeaux, southwest France.

Audion’s roots trace back over 30 years to its establishment in Brighton, Southern England. Founded by former Audio Innovations employees in 1987, Audion emerged after the sale of Audio Innovations. Our unwavering mission then, as it remains today, is to make our products accessible and affordable to all while delivering exceptional musicality and user-friendly experiences. Above all, we understand that our commitment to quality and attention to detail ensures that your Audion investment is truly sound

At Audion, we believe our products speak volumes for themselves. Don’t just take our word for it—explore the reviews and testimonials accumulated over the years. Our track record includes groundbreaking achievements like the Silver Night 300B, the Silver Night DUO (the first dual 2A3 / 300B power amp), and the Super Sterling KT120 (the first Ultralinear KT120 power amp). These milestones drive us to continually enhance our offerings and create new award-winning products, such as our recent Special Edition series (a recipient of the ‘What Hi-Fi’ award) and the prestigious Audio Art award spanning from 1995 to 2024.

Our product range encompasses both amplifiers and pre-amplifiers, available in both active and passive configurations. We also excel in phono stages for both MM (moving magnet) and MC (moving coil) cartridges. Notably, our pre-amplifier has been hailed as the ‘best in the world’ by Arthur Salvatore.

With well over 30 years of experience in designing and building award-winning amplifiers, we’ve honed the art of creating products that look and sound exceptional. Many of our processes are carried out in-house by our skilled artisans, ensuring quality at every step.

What sets Audion apart is not only our innovative products, knowledgeable staff, and custom manufacturing facility in South West France but also our unwavering ethos. We are committed to creating high-quality, affordable high-end products tailored specifically for you—our valued customers

Audion, What makes us different.

Audion stands out from its competitors due to our unique approach. Our electronics are exclusively designed in-house, and we collaborate with a top European chassis designer for our new amplifiers. With well over 30 years of research, our award-winning products continuously improve classic designs like the Silver Night and Sterling ranges. Our commitment extends to metalwork, where we create our own designs and produce them in the UK. We also craft our own transformers and special finishes. All production occurs in our custom facility in Bordeaux, France, reflecting our British ownership and dedication to using premium components sourced from Britain, Europe, and North America


Our Mission Statement

At Audion, our mission is to faithfully reproduce music as close to the original recordings as possible. We achieve this through extensive research into various circuit topologies and carefully selected components sourced globally. Our commitment to valve audio reproduction places us at the forefront, delivering world-class products that music enthusiasts will appreciate. Despite our high-quality standards, we strive to keep our equipment affordable, offering comparable performance to units that cost significantly more.

We aim to demystify the world of ‘Esoteric High End’ technology, making it accessible to everyone. Our communication is straightforward, avoiding unnecessary technical jargon

Transformer Winding

Our in-house design and manufacturing process for transformers incorporates cutting-edge CNC technology. We exclusively utilize top-quality components, including single-cast copper or pure silver wire, M6 or higher-grade laminations. Additionally, our transformers undergo rigorous Hi-pot testing, exceeding 5KV.” 😊 If you need further assistance or have any other requests, feel free to ask!

Valve Selection

Our in-house design and manufacturing process for valves incorporates mainly JJ tubes for our 300B and KT88 models, and Electro Harmonix tubes for our EL34, KT120, and KT150 models. Additionally, our smaller tubes are sourced primarily from our NOS selection of Russian tubes, which are meticulously matched, balanced, and carefully chosen. All of our valves come with a 6-month warranty. Furthermore, we voice each valve in the amp to ensure it harmonizes perfectly with the final setup.” 😊 If you need further assistance or have any other requests, feel free to ask!

Quality Testing

Our amplifiers undergo a comprehensive 24-hour burn-in process, followed by an actual listening test. Additionally, all our hard-wired amps are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, serving as your guarantee of our unwavering commitment to quality. Utilizing cutting-edge digital and analog test equipment, we meticulously conduct a minimum of 25 distinct tests on each amplifier.” 😊 If you need further assistance or have any other requests, feel free to ask!
