DAC and Headphone Amplifier
From the Ayre website:
"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."
Ever since we had the pleasure of setting up a stereo for Neil Young to demo his Pono player (you read that correctly), we have had a great admiration for Ayre products. This DAC is no different. It's sounds is unbelievable, its build quality is second to none, and its usablilty exceeds our expecations.
This one is in good condition - please note the small blemish on the top. It is in perfect operational condition. Our technician went through it and found no issues.
