Ayre-KX-5-Twenty Preamp

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.
