Hi all. New member here and posted up on the front end forum earlier. Part of what I posted was as below and then it occurred to me it was on the wrong forum. So, any comments on experiences very welcome..
I have the Ayre K-1xe pre-amp which is fantastic but it doesn't have a remote. My dCS has a built in pre in the dac and obviously the C-1xe does not.If I go for the Ayre CD player I may consider getting a k-5 Evolution to replace the K-1xe. Is that likely to be a noticeable step backwards in sound quality? I know the K-1 was the flagship model but they are getting a bit old now and I wondered if the the newer K-5 technology has caught up sound-wise?
