The 8 series will fit into their product range below the new 5 series, taking the place of the discontinued 9 and 7 series and the older 5 series products. The price range of the 8 series is planned to be between $2500 - $8000 US Retail.

The first two products which are showing in Munich are the AX-8 integrated amplifier (with digital inputs including streaming) and the QX-8 digital hub (also with streaming) and like all Ayre components, they will be hand-built in Boulder, CO.

Here are the initial specs and descriptions

I'm sure you know more about it than many of us do. Very cool though.
Thanks CT. They have played around so much with digital and I think the phono is the only product not given the Twenty upgrade treatment.....
