World Class Performance

Extraordinary Value

Our passion for purity in music reproduction has driven us to design and build no-compromise stereo equipment since 1993. Forged from our fully-balanced, zero-feedback designs, we innovate new technologies and implement them in the most affordable way possible. Whether you are looking for the best system for music streaming, a USB DAC, a phono stage, or an incredible integrated amplifier, find an Ayre Dealer near you and change the way you listen to music.

High End Music System

In 1993 Ayre Acoustics launched the V3 stereo power amplifier, which became an instant classic. Thirty years later, we present the VX-8 stereo power amplifier, which signifies a steady progression and refinement of everything Ayre has stood for all these years. With its true zero-feedback, fully balanced, and discrete circuit topology, the VX-8 will unlock the musical potential of any speakers or front end source component it is paired with.
