THE uni­ver­sal player to po­ten­tially slay ev­ery other multi-for­mat player is here. The Ayre DX-5 – des­ig­nated an A/V En­gine – prom­ises to play back vir­tu­ally all op­ti­cal dig­i­tal for­mats, video or au­dio, with com­puter con­nec­tiv­ity to boot.

It will tackle CD, SACD, DVD-Au­dio/Video, Blu-ray, MP3, while an asyn­chronous trans­fer mode USB in­put al­lows trans­mis­sion of up to 24-bit/192-kHz res­o­lu­tion. Then, there are two HDMI out­puts for both AV and au­dio-only ap­pli­ca­tions, plus an Eth­er­net port for BD Live fea­tures and firmware up­dates.

This tech­no­log­i­cal mar­vel uses Ayre’s ex­clu­sive Min­i­mum Phase dig­i­tal fil­ter, and fea­tures sin­gle-pass 16-times over­sam­pling, dis­crete de­cod­ing and play­back of all for­mats in their na­tive do­main, ul­tra-low jit­ter mas­ter clocks, zero-feed­back/fully-bal­anced dis­crete cir­cuitry and to­tal elec­tri­cal iso­la­tion be­tween video, com­puter au­dio, and ana­logue au­dio sec­tions.

The sep­a­rate trans­form­ers for ana­logue au­dio and video cir­cuitry are equipped with Ayre’s ac­claimed RFI fil­ters, tak­ing per­for­mance up a few notches.

And where to find this mag­i­cal ma­chine? Call Hi-WayLaser(% 019-2813399) to be en­light­ened.

Cut­ting edge: Ayre’s DX-5, pos­si­bly the last op­ti­cal disc player you’ll ever need.
