Before I purchase


Looking at a Ayon Scorpio vs a Prima Luna  Dialogue Premium ??
they look like they have good write ups on Scorpio ..
So before I spend my cash wanted a opinion of these 2 amps
thank you Joe

Yes I am thinking more that way of local with Prima Luna and will go listen to one this week...I guess the reason I ask this question I saw out west they had the Ayon Scorpio with 1k off list and sparked my interest and was wondering about quality of unit to Prima Luna...But no the Ayon I would not hear and would have to ask about returning if not happy .It is USA Tube Audio if I. purchased .
Any one purchased from USATubeAudio? And good or bad??
I have a chance to get used Cayin 88 used but it is a 7 hour round trip. The person will not send it to me unless I hear it.. But I know it will not sound anything in his place vs mine.. I am using Definitive Technology BP 8080ST bi polar speakers in hard wood floor room that is 13 X 23.
I have been using a Marantz SR8002 receiver.. And I know from what you all say that tubes make differences in units so know there is a way to change the sound of tube amps...I am searching for a less sharp sound and softer with my hearing...
Joe,
I own a PrimaLunaDialogue Integrated....it’s the best tube rig over the three I’ve previously owned. Good warranty and I’d describe the sound as full, spacious and detailed with the stock tubes.There is no "sharpness."  I have not felt the urge to "roll" or swap out tubes. I don't know your speakers power needs but tube power always seemed to produce more perceived power than it’s rating when I compared to the same solid state numbers. If you go audition and have been used to solid state, the change in sonic presentation may surprise you. BTW, USA Tube Audio in Arizona is the primary importer/distributor for Ayon products. Ayons are real eye candy if you like chrome. Don’t know how they sound.

Larry do you have the Dialogue Premium or Dialogue Premium HP ??
I purchased the Prima Luna premium hp about 6 months ago. I have been extremely happy with my choice. I also am content with the tubes, build quality is fantastic, the remote is solid like a brick. Nothing cheap about this unit. I thought the price point was very reasonable for the results. It has made my Focal Electra1028’s sing. 
Thank You..Will go to Prima Luna Dealer this week after the snow moves out.. I just saw a article on Raven Audio out of Texas .
They have a Nighthawk and Blackhawk 3k to 4k integrated amps and they have at home trial for 45 days on their site..
To much to chose from and to many reviews. I think a person like me gets a tube amp and it has just little better definition /smoothness I will be pleased and thankful with hearing issues I have to be just thankful at 67 to even hear what I do at this age..Working in Fabrication shop 41 yrs.
Thank You will let you know what I do in time..
