What at first I thought was a sleeper has turned into a real dynamo of digital sound. The Ayre Codex was still in the "break in system" most of the holiday season, with the rest of the Ayre gear that's been arriving here for your market. Once deemed ready to demo, it's proven itself to come out of the gates at quite a clip. This is one great DAC, with great features and ease of use. I've used it with a Macbook, at the end of various transports, and now with the Auralic Aries bridge/streamer. It also sports balanced inputs for headphones, which is now considered to be the only way to plug ones cans in. Highly highly recommended.
