Thank you so much for the well-written and comprehensive review of the Ayre QX-5 Twenty. For us the highest reward is that our products deliver what we designed them to do, to let you get lost in the music. We are extremely pleased that the QX-5 Twenty continues our track record and connects you directly to the musician and the performance!
Ayre has been developing award-winning products and technologies since 1993. Ayre’s continuous innovation with technologies like our minimum-phase digital filters and advanced clocking are, we feel, largely responsible for the smile that broke out on your face during your late-night listening sessions.
The QX-5 is really a showcase of a quarter of a century of research and development. Connecting our award winning analog circuitry with any type of relevant digital source, the QX-5 Twenty utilizes innovations to specifically defeat jitter, create a quiet backdrop, pull all of the music from the recordings, and make smiles (even with "bad" recordings).
This newest member of our 5 series is the best digital product we have ever made and, like all of our products, it is designed to be upgraded as new technologies emerge. We look forward to providing you with products to review for years to come, and more smiles.
Sincerely—The Ayre Team
