Introducing a giant leap forward in the digital playback technology—the Ayre C-5xeMP. This new design creates a completely new product category, the U2 player (universal stereo player). The first of its kind, this no video, no compromise design plays all existing optical disc formats including: CD, SACD, DVD-Audio, DVD-Video (soundtrack only), and MP-3. This unique disc player is the ultimate playback machine for the music lover. When the music is paramount, the C-5xeMP sets a new standard. The C-5xeMPis truly for those of us who value the enjoyment of music above all else.
“The Ayre C-5xe has proved to be the best-sounding product I’ve heard all year.”
