Foundational Features

Ayre’s exclusive fully-balanced, zero-feedback circuitry, with special emphasis lavished on the power supply. The result is a new world of artistic insight and experience.

Fully-balanced Circuitry

Balanced circuitry is a special dual configuration that rejects noise and interference—not only from external cables, but also from the AC power line itself.

The AyreConditioner

Keeping its cool in the noisiest of environments the Ayre Conditioner dissipates high-frequency power line interference.

Zero-feedback Design

Ayre’s exclusive zero-feedback circuits are designed for intrinsically pure linearity, delivering performance that is coherent and natural.

E-I Core Transformers

E-I core transformers provide superior rejection of AC line noise compared to commonly used toroidal designs.
