P-5xe : phono preamp
The Ayre P-5xe phono preamplifier uncovers the astounding musicality in your favorite
records. Music flows from a pure black background, thanks to ultra-low noise FET circuitry
in a zero-feedback
configuration. Fully adjustable gain and
loading options provide complete compatibility with the widest possible range of
cartridges, from low-output exotic moving coils to high-output moving magnet designs.
Our proprietary two-stage passive RIAA equalization ensures unparalleled tonal
realism. The Ayre P-5xe infuses new life into a classic format.
“…the P-5x lets you forget it’s even there—about as high a
compliment as can be paid a piece of audio gear in the service of music.”
