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.
