Audion Silver Night Stereo Anniversary power amplifier range

The Audion Silver Night 30th Anniversary  Range consists of Single Ended hard wired Stereo & Stereo Integrated power amplifiers which come with a choice of 3 valve types, 300B, PX25 and 2A3 valves (with the ability to use type 45 valves.  This range represents our intermediate level range, Yet still affordable and using quality British, European or American components. These amps can reproduce subtleties and nuances in music that can not be found in other amps at this price. The 300B gives a good overall sonic performance from a well known valve, the PX25 delivers slightly more power and presence as well as deeper bass and higher tops, the mid-range is incredibly sweet and controlled. The 2A3 delivers a little less power and is thus suited better to loudspeakers of 97db efficiency or better, they can be used with speakers of less efficiency but will “run out of steam” quicker. The 2A3 is a good amp to use with Horn loudspeakers as it has an extra 2 power supply stages and is quieter (less than 1mV noise). All of these amps are wired for 8 ohms, however they have a 4 ohm tapping that can be changed internally.

As the Audion brand name is so well known, The Silver Nights are our most popular selling amp in our line-up and the one that wins hearts and minds.

All of the Anniversary hard wired Silver Nights in this  range work with a wide range of loudspeakers and truly exhibit all of the subtleties, details and nuances that the valves give using a zero feedback design.

Audion Silver Night 300B stereo

Audion Silver Night 30th Anniversary 300B Stereo

The Audion Silver Night hard wired Anniversary amplifiers come with a wide range of component and valve options as well as our standard class options. We are also able to add a remote volume control to all of these amplifiers.

The range consists of 7 basic variations which are the valve options and whether you want a single ended stereo or stereo integrated power amplifier or the DUO which gives you the option to use both 300B and 2A3 valves (and we supply this amp with both) which uses a unique circuit topology. 

“The Silver Night is a detail retrieval machine which benefits almost every aspect of performance, from dynamics to dimensionality” – Philip Holmes – Dagogo 

These hard wired (Air Wired) 30th Anniversary amplifiers are wired point to point and have a volume control on the front which negates the need for a pre-amplifier in most cases. Our stereo integrated power amplifiers have a 5 stereo channel passive pre-amplifier built in so you can use up to 5 line level inputs. These amps even have an un-attenuated output for feeding directly to a tape recorder or active sub-woofer or even to another amp for bi-amping. All of our single ended designs use unique circuits and are auto-biased so don’t need regular bias changing or complicated setting up. They are to effect “Plug and Play”

The current Silver Night Anniversary is now our 5th Generation product with the originals being sold in 1987, following a review by Sam Tellig that put Audion’s name firmly onto the audiophiles map..

The chassis is made of military grade aluminium, with a durable black powder coated finish. The top plate and badge are finished with mirror polished stainless steel.

The Audion Sterling EL34 Anniversary Edition is a warm and dimensional-sounding amplifier with a potent lower midrange that does justice to the power range of an orchestra. It sang right out of the box and never misbehaved. Kudos to the Audion team for breathing new life into the venerable EL34 pentode. In my estimation, the Sterling EL34 represents a gift to music lovers everywhere. Highly recommended.

"Very round, smooth and toasty," but "well capable of enough resolution to easily distinguish Red Book CDs from their SACD cousins"; the midrange is "smooth and luxurious," but the bass has "neither the detailed control nor the slam of any solid-state integrated in [the Sterling Stereo EL34's] price range" -- no surprise., pulvinar dapibus leo. "Fully capable of refined tube splendor that's unanticipated at its price level."

The sound was a contrast, detailed and extremely musical. There was no slowness and desire to lull the listener, for which I dislike for a directly heated triode single end.

Every Sterling feels like it's punching well above its weight. So Good I bought one myself. More seasoned audiophiles will know that good amplification – no matter the topology – has no sound of its own. Don’t expect the thick syrup or golden hues of sub-$1000 Chinese units. There is no sickly/heavy sauce here. Neither is there porridge bass. Who said tubes are no hopeless below the waist? (Fools!) This Audion is the healthiest of extra virgin olive oil: light, transparent, clean. And fast. It is unburdened by ponderous, labouring low frequencies or musical weight gain. Its talents lie in 1. the ability to drive a wide range of loudspeakers and 2. the beautification of music. Each combination a winner.
