Up for sale is a brand new Ayre Codex. This versatile piece is an absolute giant killer. Don't take my word for it though:
"the Codex is the most value-packed DAC in the Ayre Acoustics repertoire, and its modest enclosure hides a pyramid of technological achievement rarely available at this price point. The Codex should be part of the roundup for anyone looking for a DAC under $2000—even if they never need its headphones options."
"When I first began reviewing the Codex, I thought that I would be experiencing a fine headphone amp with a DAC included as an extra feature. What I discovered was that the Codex is a first-rate DAC that sounds as good as or better than DACs costing far more in price. The Codex can easily form the basis of a first-rate high end system. I now view the excellent headphone amp and digital volume control as bonus features that match the sound quality of the Codex. I feel that Ayre has accomplished something very special in the design of the Codex that will force other DAC manufacturers to improve their products or fall behind. Given the price, performance, and features found in the Codex, I feel it is the most significant product I have reviewed in 2015."
One very important point. The Ayre warranty DOES transfer between private parties. As a result, the buyer will have the Ayre factory warranty with this piece!
