Building on Ayre’s zero feed back, fully balanced foundation, the KX-R elevates the art of preamplification to a higher plane. The KX-R transcends all other designs with its radical new concepts. The revolutionary Variable Gain Transimpedance (VGT) amplification circuit eliminates the conventional attenuator-based volume control completely. This simplified signal path delivers the music directly for a full and complete experience. Destined to become an instant classic, the Ayre KX-R is the reference for the next decade.
