Default Ayre Acoustics DX-5 Universal Blu-ray player (Top of the line in picture and sound)

Ayre Acoustics DX-5 Universal Blu-ray player (Top of the line in picture and sound quality according to review)

The new Ayre Acoustics DX-5 Universal Blu-ray player for $9,950 is very similar to the old OPPO BDP-83. In fact the exact same remote that is used on the OPPO BDP-83 is used on this DX-5 Blu-ray player. For $9,950 I am surprised this player is a 2-D only Blu-ray player.

The June 2011 Home Theater magazine review claims this DX-5 Blu-ray player is the best on the market in terms of both sound quality and video quality compared to any other Blu-ray player.

The following are select quotes from the June 2011 Home Theater magazine Review (review located on pages 44-46)

“The DX-5 is based on the disc drive mechanism and video decoding board from the OPPO BDP-83. Everything else is designed and/or implemented by Ayre, including the power supplies, DACs, digital filters, and analog audio output sections.”

“No other Blu-ray-based player I’ve heard, including Denon’s DVD-A1UDCI(HT, October 2009), approaches this level of sonic quality.”

“The DX-5 fully revealed the highest frequencies in these patterns, and the vertical lines looked crisper than they did with the OPPO BDP-95 I used for comparison.”

“I know my comments on the HDMI video output looking better than other players will be met with skepticism. I get it. That’s how I felt before I saw the DX-5.”
