FS: Ayre P5xe Phono Stage (Withdrawn)


Recommended Posts

Item Condition: Excellent
Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost.
Suburb or Town: Sydney (lower north shore)
State: New South Wales
Payment Method: Bank transfer, paypal
Reason for selling: Too many phono stages

For sale is my Ayre P5xe phono stage. This is an extremely good sounding phono stage, well built and versatile enough to suit most cartridges. It is a 2015 unit in excellent condition with original packaging.

 

I recently withdrew this from sale because I liked it too much, but on further thought I have far too many phono stages and really do not need another high end solid state phono stage, however good. So regretfully this one is back for sale.

 

The P5Xe has adjustable gain and loading. It can be loaded at 100 ohms, 1000 ohms and 47k ohms using dip switches on the rear panel, and also allows custom loadings through use of loading plugs. I am including 470 ohm loading plugs made from Vishay Z-Foil resistors.

 

I would encourage you to read the Soundstage review: http://www.soundstagenetwork.com/vinyl/vinyl200506.htm. This describes the sound of the P5xe very accurately - superb sounding, but very transparent and very neutral. If you are looking for tube "bloom" this phono stage will not suit you. But if you are looking for absolute transparency and super-quiet backgrounds then the Ayre may well be what you are looking for.

 

Pick up is available or I am happy to post at the buyer's cost.

I've added a couple of reviews as PDF attachments in original post, which are well worth reading.

As there continues to be little interest in this phono stage, I have started using it again and it genuinely sounds outstanding - amongst the best of the many high end phono stages I have owned. I will probably just keep it, so it is withdrawn from sale for the moment.

      Quad or really 2 pairs of RFT EL34's  which have been tested on a hickok 750 tester, they pass gas and shorts and all test above new spec and all within 5%.  One pair has the RFT boxes and slightly bigger base, The other pair has no boxes and has a sligtly thinner base. happy to split the pairs if I have a buyer for both. Structurally they are essentially the same. They all are the single halo getter type.
       
      RFT stands for Rundfunk- und Fernmelde-Technik - a group of state-owned technology companies in the former German Democratic Republic (East Germany). This company produced valves for Telefunken and Siemens and made the famous Siemens EL34. These valves are of very good quality and have excellent consistency. They have been making valves for Siemens etc since the 60's and are considered by some to be some of the best EL34's made (that you can still buy relatively easily) .   
       
      These are still available from some retail tube sellers at around RRP $650+ or even more on scumbay for a good set.
       
       
       
      postage included within Aus
