Ayre Acoustics Codex DAC & Headphone Amplifier
The Ayre Acoustics Codex Headphone amplifier and DAC is now at Audio Excellence!
The Codex is loosely based around the internal workings of Neal Young's "Pono Player" which was developed by Ayre. It's not surprising Young picked the company to develop his High Resolution music device, they've been engineering and manufacturing high end Audio components in Boulder Colorado for decades, almost all of which have been praised by Audiophiles and Reviewers unanimously. The Codex builds heavily on the Pono design with features from its top line Amplifiers including the pure class A "Diamond" output stage and Equilock power supply, they instantly put this unit in a different league in terms of sonic reproduction. Other features such as USB and optical DAC inputs, RCA and XLR Outputs, Balanced Headphone outs (along with a traditional Quarter inch output), a high quality volume control and playback of up to PCM 32/384khz and DSD 128 make it clear the Codex is serious Digital Audio decoding solution from Ayre, it's even said to come very close to the performance of their highly regarded QB9 DAC for a much lower price!
Sonically, our listening impressions reveal an amazingly clear, modern, neutral character with plenty of punch, but don't just take our word for it, come in to Audio Excellence and listen to the Codex Today!
