Since the introduction of the KX-R preamplifier in 2008 we have embarked on many projects involving new technologies. While progressing along this musical journey, our collective knowledge base has grown immensely in all areas of audio circuit design. These new insights have been implemented at the highest level in our complete redesign of the KX-R Twenty. These technologies and upgrades to the KX-R have resulted in a preamplifier which is as revolutionary now as the KX-R was when it was originally introduced with the world’s first Variable Gain Transconductance (VGT) volume control.
Arguably the most important component in your system, the KX-5 delivers all of the performance and flexibility you have come to expect from an Ayre product.
Following in the legendary footsteps of the KX-R preamplifier, the Ayre KX-5 lives up to the challenge with dynamics powered by our Diamond output stage and a finesse achieved by eliminating the traditional attenuating volume control with our 46 position Variable Gain Transimpedance (VGT) amplification circuit. Featuring six programmable inputs and our unique Equilock gain stage, the KX-5 will draw you in with its enchanting musicality and drop your jaw with its endless depth of stage.
The Ayre MX-R Twenty mono amplifier is a revolutionary redesign of our highest level product. Exploring every detail in the audio path from circuit trace length to part orientation, including processes which many would consider fanatical, pushes this amplifier to the brink of perfection. The dual-transformer linear power supply using our AyreLock circuitry effortlessly drives the most demanding loudspeakers. Our exclusive EquiLock technology enhances the zero-feedback, fully-balanced circuitry for an unprecedented level of clarity and resolution. Our Double Diamond output stage offers power and control that will change the way you listen to music.
In today’s digitally-connected world you need more than just a DAC or a streamer. You need a device that can effortlessly render your highest resolution files and, without missing a beat, play your favorite online streaming services or BBC broadcast. Featuring the new ESS ES9038PRO DAC chip and a new jointly-developed doubly-rotated Morion quartz crystal-based oscillator, The QX-5 Twenty elevates digital performance to an astonishing level. Linking all of your digital media together with every conceivable digital input and the most popular streaming services, the QX-5 Twenty provides unlimited flexibility and convenience at the highest level.
The Ayre VX-5 fully-discrete, fully-balanced, zero-feedback amplifier features our exclusive Equilock circuitry and our Diamond output stage giving it both the power and control for the most demanding musical passages. The VX-5 is every bit the refined and sublime musical masterpiece you have come to expect from an Ayre product. With the addition of our new Diamond output stage this amplifier packs a punch so palpable you will find yourself clinging to the essence of every note. Make a VX-5 the foundation of your music system and redefine your expectation of what an amplifier should do.
Featuring Ayre’s Double Diamond output stage, our exclusive EquiLock circuitry, and a Shallco solid-silver contact switch for gain control, this fully-discrete, fully-balanced, zero-feedback integrated amplifier provides a complete solution for your modern music system. The key to perfecting the AX-5 was to incorporate the Variable Gain Technology (VGT) of the award-winning Ayre KX-R preamplifier into the power amplifier section. The addition of ultra-transparent FET input selector switches completed the transformation of a basic power amplifier into a compact one-box solution which will become the heart of your high-performance audio system.
The EX-8 integrated amplifier provides a total solution for state-of-the-art music reproduction. Simply add any source (digital and/or analog) plus a pair of loudspeakers or headphones, and enjoy a musical experience that invigorates your soul. Built around Ayre’s exclusive innovations, the Ayre EX-8 includes fully-balanced, zero-feedback (real-time) circuitry throughout for natural musicality.
Equally at home as a stand-alone DAC, headphone amp, or digital preamp, the Codex can unlock the potential of any system. A fully-balanced signal path throughout the analog circuitry provides an inherently clean and quiet backdrop for your music. The zero-feedback design maintains all of the pace and rhythm of your favorite artist, rendering your digital music as effortlessly as if it were live.
