KX-R Twenty : preamplifier

“It stands to reason that if Ayre Acoustics’ original KX-R was the best preamp I’d ever had in my system, and the KX-R Twenty is even better, then the KX-R Twenty is the new “best preamp I’ve ever heard.” It is.”

“It seemed to me that I was hearing the voice of God.”

“…the KX-R Twenty is as good as a preamplifier can get.”

“In my life, three much-hyped experiences have actually lived up to all the hoopla: trekking into Machu Picchu on a misty morning, climbing the Great Wall of China on a brisk December afternoon, and auditioning the Ayre KX-R. If it’s not the eighth wonder of the modern world, I say demand a recount.”

“This thing is a joy to own and a joy to use. Anyone shopping at this end of the market that ignores or under-estimates the KX-R and its matching amps will be making a serious (and probably costly) mistake.”
