For sell is my Ayre P-5x in excellent condition. It is marked Evolution. I am the original owner purchased about 10 years ago from Audio Alternative in Lilburn, GA.
Includes balanced and unbalanced inputs and outputs. I used it with a Denon DL-110 moving coil cartridge and a Rega 2 turntable and it sounded very nice.
It features some of Ayres best developments including:
MP Digital filter
Very easy to set the gain and impedance of any cartridge.
Here is what Sound Stage Vinyl World review comments:
Sound "A distinct lack of a sound" -- "what it does contribute is, in large part, defined by absence." "Missing are noise, glare and tonal aberrations. Even more important, in place of any noise, the P-5xe substitutes a velvety black background and a complex, harmonically correct presentation." "Utterly transparent -- a clear window into the musical performance."
Features A fully balanced dual-mono phono stage. "There are two sets of impedance DIP switches on the back panel, one for each channel. These provide the most common choices of impedance -- 100, 1000 and 47,000 ohms -- but an infinite combination of settings is available by soldering resistors to the type of connector (RCA or XLR) that is not being used and plugging these connectors into the P-5xe." "Gain is selectable via internal switches, with the choices being 50, 60 or 70dB for the balanced outputs, and 6dB less for the single-ended."
Use "If you’re experiencing interference from other electronics, or picking up radio broadcasts from your interconnects due to your ultra-low-output moving-coil cartridge, running a balanced signal into the P-5xe may well be the answer."
Value "Even at its $2350 price, the Ayre P-5xe has to be considered a very good buy. One thing that’s for sure is that returns will diminish very rapidly when you attempt to buy a 'better' phono stage than this one."
Will ship in North America only.
