For sale is an Ayre P-5xe Evolution phono stage. This unit is like new. I checked the serial number with Ayre and it was manufactured in 2016. There are no cosmetic or functional issues. This is a fantastic phono stage that has a very high level of resolution with precise imaging and a wide and deep soundstage. Just passes through what is on the record and your TT, arm, and cartridge. This unit is fully balanced and has both single-ended and XLR inputs and outputs.
Includes original manual, boxes, and packing materials.
I will cover half of insured shipping to the continental United States and half of Paypal fees if my full asking price is met.
I have impeccable feedback both here and on audiogon (username: wcheng2)
