Reviews

"Ayre Acoustics’ QX-5 Twenty is one of the finest-sounding, most versatile digital audio products I have had the pleasure of using."

-Stereophile

"With its pure treble, clear, and rich midrange ample low end, and coherence, the Ayre is the finest solid-state integrated I've had in my house.

-Stereophile

"Of all its talents, the most noteworthy have to be its power and sheer dynamic headroom. There are few amplifiers at any price that seem completely at ease with themselves, yet this is one of them."

-Hi-fi News

"I could happily live with this Ayre preamp and amp, even as part of a system that costs many times their combined price, and never give replacing them a second thought."

-The Audio Beat

"The sound was open and driving and rhythmic and dynamic--very dynamic. It was.. it was.. you had to be there I'm sure glad Iwas."

-Stereophile

"My initial sonic impressions included descriptive terms as big, bold, and detailed with an excellent transient response. The QX-8 delivers the characteristic “Ayre Acoustics Sound”: extremely neutral, dynamic with very well controlled bass and an overall lack of hardness... What the QX-8 delivers is absolute tonal accuracy in its overall presentation."

-Darko Audio

"The QB-9 Twenty really surprised me by how great it sounds in my system."

-Audiophile Style

"Overall the Ayre EX-8 Integrated Hub performed very well on Newport Test Labs’ test bench, though the results do indicate that you will get best performance from it if you to use loudspeakers with a nominal impedance of at least 8Ω and connect them using short lengths of low-resistance cable."

-What Hi-Fi?

"The Ayre Acoustics VX-R is that rare component: a luxury audio component in every way, a reference-caliber performer, and a very good value at its high price. It’s not only one of the best products of any kind I’ve ever reviewed, it’s the very best power amplifier I’ve ever heard. It’s the first solid-state power amplifier to come along in a long time that not only inspired me, but thrilled me to the point that I didn’t want to see it go."
