    Item Description

    Up for sale is my like new Ayre KX-5 preamp. There is a long wait to get your hands on one of these and you won't find one near this price. This is the latest model and is as close to new as can get. Very low hours, in perfect condition. I am selling in order to fund an unexpected home improvement project. I am in the NYC area, so pick up is possible and preferred, but I will ship if need be. This is the most neutral, balanced preamp I have ever owned and will bring your system to another level.
