Ayre Acoustics, Inc. has been designing and building superior quality, award winning audio and video equipment since 1993. Ayre's products share a similar design philosophy, using no negative feedback thereby preserving the critical phase relationship that helps to lend music playback an intimate, "right" feel. Ayre works particularly well with our Vandersteen Audio speakers which are also minimum phase designs. Their products include DACs preamps and phono stages and range from moderately priced to fairly expensive. They excel in high resolution couple with great musicality.
