Up for sale is an Ayre KX-5 Twenty preamp in excellent condition. This preamp is in the conversation for the best available under 20k! Don't take my word for it though:
"What Ayre has achieved in the KX-5 Twenty is nothing short of remarkable. In his e-mails to me, Charles Hansen noted more than once that his goal with the Twenty series was to produce products that “ensure that the musical engagement and beauty of tubes has been surpassed, while all of tubes’ drawbacks are completely sidestepped.” I can unequivocally state that the KX-5 Twenty does just what Hansen set out to achieve. Much like the KX-5 before it, the KX-5 Twenty strives for purity of sound through purity of signal, and emphasizes that the first step toward true transparency is silence. The KX-5 Twenty is not only the best preamplifier I have reviewed, it may be the best component of any type that I’ve reviewed. It’s only logical, then, that I give the KX-5 Twenty my highest recommendation, and bestow on it a Reviewers’ Choice award. " - SoundStage Ultra
