Ayre Acoustics EX-8 2.0 & CX-8 wins EDITOR'S CHOICE The Ear

"With the EX-8 2.0’s DAC connected to a Lumin U2 mini streamer via USB the results were impressively vital and open but also refined, it soon became clear that this Ayre manages to do transparency and finesse in impressively equal measure. Imaging was very strong and timing even more so."

"... it was becoming clear that the Ayre EX-8 2.0 is a very capable amplifier, one that produces almost holographic imaging, excellent timing and silky tone. Compared to many Class AB amps it’s as if the mids and highs are sweetened, presumably a result of the Class A bias in the amplifier."
