Manufacturer: Ayre Acoustics
Excellent as new condition, with original packaging box.
The Ayre CODEX headphone amplifier / DAC has arrived and is playing lovely music here.
The CODEX can be thought of three different products depending on how/where you use it:
The CODEX has an optical input and a USB input with both XLR and RCA outputs. You just connect it into your existing system and its another source component. At £1699, it represents a new entry level DAC for Ayre.
A Digital Preamplifier.
You connect it directly to your amplifier and use the CODEX’s built in volume control. If you only use USB and optical input, this will build a terrific high performance digital based stereo, with (but of course) a world class headphone amplifier output!
The CODEX has front panel headphone jacks with 1 x 6.3mm and 2 x 3.5mm, and you can also use the rear panel XLR connections. You can use the two 3.5mm outputs for a balanced headphone which gives you a much lower noise floor.
Equally at home as a stand alone DAC, headphone amp, or digital preamp, the Codex can unlock the potential of any system. A fully-balanced signal path throughout the analog circuitry provides an inherently clean and quiet backdrop for your music. The zero-feedback design maintains all of the pace and rhythm of your favorite artist, rendering your digital music as effortlessly as if it were live.
