The ultimate in high-end reference for Blue-ray, SACD, DVD Audio, CD and DVD, the Ayre DX-5 Universal Player exceeds all standards of excellence. For design and build, there is simply nothing else to compare. The chassis is constructed of solid machined aluminum stock. For quality of construction, Ayre is unsurpassed.
The audio performance is as transparent, detailed, and dynamic as all of the glowing reviews say. The late Charles Hanson has left his DX-5 creation as the benchmark of digital players. For the money-no-object audiophile, this has been the reference audio source for top end sound systems. (original sales price was $10,200.)
The unit I am selling is in perfect working condition and delivers all the great sound experience expected by this outstanding player.
The Ayre DX-5 is in flawless cosmetic condition -- not the slightest scratch or mark anywhere on the unit -- IT IS LIKE NEW. I purchased it from Ayre on 9-6-2016, it was hardly ever used, and has been in storage for most of its life. It comes with the original owners manual and remote -- in perfect condition also. Note: the remote control has been kept in its original clear plastic sleeve at all times, so it remains completely unblemished, like-new, and sanitary. The unit ships in the original box with the original packing materials. The factory box and unit weighs 28 pounds and measures 22" x 17" x 10". Shipping to be calculated, or pick-up is welcomed. The shipment will be double-boxed for extra safety -- and fully insured.
You will not find a more perfect DX-5 than this! I can provide more photos on request.
