FS: Ayre V-3 MkII power amp

Recommended Posts

Ayre V3 MkII power amp. I am the second owner. It’s the first piece of Ayre kit I have owned and I’ve been really impressed. It’s a great sounding amp.

MOSFET power amplifier. Class A/AB
Power output: 100Wpc into 8 ohms (20dBW), 200Wpc into 4 ohms (20dBW).
Voltage gain: 32dB.
Input impedance: 10k ohms.

Nice condition with some light marks on the front.

Reduced to £1000

I am based in Northampton

Seen it and heard it at Nick's place. Lovely piece of kit, and like all Nick's stuff, well cared for.

MOSFETs have a musical ability that really needs to be heard.

Interesting amp - dont be put off if you havent heard much about the brand as Ayre are a top class U.S. outfit. They are, at a pinch, class leaders in balanced technology.

Pre Kegworth bump an thanks Vince.

Having owned a few brands of power amps over the last year or so (Karan, Moon and currently Aesthetix) the Ayre really is a great sounding amp for the money. I found it to be very open sounding with excellent imaging in my system. The next step up the ladder to the V5 would be over twice the money.

Top bit of kit this, pretty sure 5 series came in under the 3s when introduced, bargain at the price. Anyone wavering check this out

I can throw in a Tisbury passive pre if you are interested for an additional £50.
