The AX-5 Twenty integrated 2 channel amplifier is an exceptional product in the Twenty model series from Ayre.
This compact single box, entirely discrete integrated with its zero feedback topology can become the core element of a modern, high-performance audio system.
It is a fully balanced, very fine sounding stereo amplifier with Shallco (solid silver contacts) gain control & Ayre’s exclusive Double Diamond output stage.
Ayre Acoustics AX-5 Twenty employs the same ultra-transparent FET input selector & high-resolution Variable Gain Technology (VGT) that are also integral parts of Ayre’s stunning KR-X Pre-amplifier, ensuring a very musical sound.
The Ayre AX-5 Twenty fully-balanced, zero-feedback integrated amplifier provides a complete solution for your modern music system.
There is little sense of the AX-5 Twenty being a 'character amplifier', one that thrusts its personality at the listener.
Ayre’s high quality, bold & distinctive design is a pleasure to behold.
