AX-5 Twenty : integrated amp
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 AX-5 is not only, overall, the finest-sounding amp I’ve ever heard,
it ranks as one of the finest components I’ve heard of any type.”
