Ayre EX-8 review HiFi Magazine Australia
Interconnectedness, easy operability, excellent sound quality and attractive exterior make the Ayre EX-8 worthy of your consideration.
The fact that the Ayre EX-8 does not have Bluetooth and Airplay should not really worry you, but if it does, there are easy ways to enable this (ask your hi-fi dealer), so I don’t really lament their lack. Likewise with MQA, even though Ayre could easily add this at any time (in fact, probably a good idea to check if it has been added by the time you’re reading this review). But I do recommend you listen to the Ayre EX-8, because although its price puts it on a shelf where it has lots of serious and well-credentialed competitors, its interconnectedness, easy operability, excellent sound quality and attractive exterior make it worthy of your consideration.
