Ayre VX-5 Twenty solid state stereo power amplifier. Silver. This is a factory VX-5 Twenty, not an upgrade.
Here is an excellent review:
Here is the Conclusion of this review:
"The VX-5 fully delivers on all the goals that the company set out for it. The Ayre sounds fast, powerful, nimble, transparent and highly detailed yet fluid, airy and utterly unforced. It’s a combination of audiophile qualities that you don’t often find in audio components, certainly not in power amplifiers. The VX-5 Twenty is a beauty to look at and it delivers the most refined sound that I have heard from any solid state amplifier so far. Add to this that it is priced very sanely and it becomes something of a bargain."
And The Audio Beat review:
"(T)he Ayre KX-5 Twenty and VX-5 Twenty are rare pieces of audio equipment, precisely because they both call to mind and transcend the solid-state/tube debate. They are among the very best-sounding solid-state electronics I've heard, in league with the Conrad-Johnson Premier 350 SA amp, Robert Koda Takumi K-10 preamp, and Ayre's own MX-R monoblocks and KX-R preamp..."
