P-5XE Phono Preamplifier (silver)

The Ayre P-5xe phono preamplifier uncovers the astounding musicality in your favorite records. Music flows from a pure black background, thanks to ultra-low noise FET circuitry in a zero-feedback configuration. Fully adjustable gain and loading options provide complete compatibility with the widest possible range of cartridges, from low-output exotic moving coils to high-output moving magnet designs. Our proprietary two-stage passive RIAA equalization ensures unparalleled tonal realism. The Ayre P-5xe infuses new life into a classic format.

“…the P-5x lets you forget it’s even there—about as high a compliment as can be paid a piece of audio gear in the service of music.”

– Michael Fremer, Stereophile
