Re: Ayre DX-5 at $10,000 is a rebadged $500 OPPO.
Sorry but with the audiohilics findings about the lexicon rebadge I think this will affect the ayre. The ayre so far has taken no steps to have their player benchmarked to see what it does and does not do. The power supply is irrelevant and we have seen this in the past, the high end has something negative about switching power supplies. And with the ayre DAC crammed into the oppo chassis it is still not as good as the oppo SE's DAC's. The ayre does not use the new 32 bit DAC's!
