Abe, What are the two small boxes to the immediate left of the iPAD?
I also have the Ayre AX-7e integrated amp and the Codex DAC in my two channel home theater system. I am looking at either the Rotel RA-1592 integrated vs Parasound Halo Integrated amp to replace my 11 year old Are AX-7e integrated amplifier. Our 2-channel home theatre system is very simple since we only have the one LG OLED TV, TiVo cable box and one integrated amplifier. My speakers are the 12L Speaker.
The new Ayre AX-8 integrated amplifier looks very interesting but $7,500 is too expensive for my home theatre system since my only source is the LG OLED 4K TV.
Hmm, $7500 is a bit steep but if it has good DAC combined with a good amp I could almost justify the price..... maybe discounted or used.
The devices to the left of the iPad are my Mac Mini and older MyTek DAC. Here's a picture of all three together:
"$7500 is a bit steep"
I'm guessing it will sound better than an AX-7/QB-9 combo, has more power and features. I'm not a fan of the look but think this is a smart product by Ayre and at a very good price for the SQ that is likely delivered.
I'm not so wild about the looks either, but I really hated the Lucky Charms icons on the AX-7's buttons. Seems to be priced about the same as a similarly appointed Vinnie Rossi Lio. I'd be curious to hear opinions on the AX-8 once people get a chance to hear it.
