Enjoy all this and more, automatically with your membership to our Club Ciamara Rewards Program:
Free to join – That’s right FREE! All you need is a Ciamara.com account to participate.
Earn 5% back in points on all purchases – For every dollar you spend (excluding tax and shipping), you will receive 5% of your purchase back in points ($1=1point). Points can be used towards future purchases (merchandise only, excludes tax and shipping).
Get early access to new products before they go live on the website – We’re constantly adding new products and you will be eligible to pre-order or be the first in line to purchase new merchandise BEFORE it goes live on ciamara.com. Club Ciamara members will be notified of early access to these new products via email.
Exclusive members only offers – Throughout the year we’ll have exclusive offers that are only available to our club members.
Group buy-in opportunities – We love the idea of offering products at reduced prices on the condition that a minimum number of buyers would make the purchase, so we will be working closely with manufacturers and distributors to find some great products for our Club Ciamara members.
Equipment trade-up program – Our lifetime trade-in program will allow club members to trade in components that were purchased from us for credit towards their next purchase.
Here’s how our trade-up program works:
The new item must be at least double the value of the trade-in item* (e.g. a $500 item must be traded in for an item that sells for $1000 or higher).
Club members will receive up to 100% of their original purchase back in credit towards their new purchase (excluding tax and shipping costs). If the item that is being traded in is a current model, then the club member is eligible to receive 100% in credit. If the item is not current, then the club member can receive up to 66.67% in credit towards their next purchase.
Trade-in must be received in good, working condition with the original box and accessories. If these conditions are not met, then the value of the trade-in will be reduced at Ciamara’s discretion.
* Not everything is eligible for trade-in, so if you have any questions about whether an item is eligible, please contact one of our sales and/or support experts.

Pro-Ject Audio Systems - Pro-ject audio products are the result of an exemplary cooperation within a rapidly uniting Europe. For over 50 years record players have been designed and built at Pro-ject's manufacturing facility in Litovel, situated to the east of Prague. The plant is one of the most advanced manufacturers of precision mechanics in the country. Pro-ject Audio Systems is currently one of the world's leading suppliers of record players and phono accessories, with a range of models designed to satisfy all levels of expectation and budget.
M&K Sound - M&K Sound loudspeakers have been chosen for the development and demonstration of the groundbreaking Dolby Digital cinema and home surround format, for the first public demonstration of the high-resolution Blu-ray disc format, for sound production on Star Wars Episodes I-III and countless other award-winning music, film and TV productions. A Who’s Who of the professional audio world – film, music, mastering and broadcast studios – continue to entrust their livelihood to M&K Sound reference monitors and powered subwoofers.
Sumiko Cartidges and Subwoofers - For nearly 30 years SUMIKO have provided the finest array of phono cartridges to discriminating analog enthusiasts around the world. The long list of iconic models produced or imported by SUMIKO reads like a “who’s who” of analog audio's illustrious past. Combining design, construction, and market knowledge of the group's companies, Sumiko Subwoofers mark the first step towards an ambitious direction, meeting expectations of a broader and more demanding audience.
PONO Cables from Cardas- Cardas Audio has worked closely with Neil Young and the rest of the Pono team to match cables and Ear Speakers to the awesome new Pono player. When connecting your Pono to a home stereo, our iLink cable uses the Pono's stereo output, and splits it into left & right male RCA plugs. When connecting to a balanced system, our HPI cable, Clear Light Headphone cable, Parsec Interconnect and Sky Interconnect can be configured into pairs with 1/8" plugs on the Pono end, and male XLR plugs on the pre-amp end.
Sonore Signature Series Rendu - Sonore builds music servers and network music players that free you from traditional computer audio playback methods. Their designs are well thought out with first-rate build quality and are backed by incredible product support.
We are very excited to announce that Ayre Acoustics has a new USB DAC, a digital preamplifier, or a headphone amp/DAC. At at target price of 1795.00, The Codex will be the least expensive digital source Ayre has ever produced. As with the rest of Ayre's products, it is fully balanced, employs zero feedback and utilizes an analog power supply. It will have two sets of analog outputs, one XLR and one RCA. It will also have two types of headphone outputs, 1x 1/4 inch and 2x 3.5mm. The two 3.5mm can be employed to use a set of headphones in balanced mode. We expect this to be an unbeatable performer at an incredible price.
We will be able to start accepting pre-orders sometime next month In the meantime, feel free to contact us for additional information.
Ayre Acoustics overhauls its award-winning 5 Series
The 5-series has officially been overhauled and Ayre is now completely out of original AX5s (we have 1 left), KX5s and VX5s. All that will be available as of now will be the new Twenty edition 5-series.
We have had some requests for more technical information on the changes to the products, so here is a list and descriptions.
AyreLock power supply - All power supply regulators, whether 3-pin ICs using massive amounts of feedback or the discrete zero-feedback designs Ayre has always used in every product ever since the V-3, twenty-one years ago, have at their heart a single series-pass active element (tube, FET, or BJT).
When the load (audio circuit) draws more current, the pass element decreases its resistance (turns on harder), to keep the voltage to the load constant.
For the AyreLock in the Twenty update, Ayre added a second circuit element (in Ayre's case a BJT) that also pulls down. So when the load (audiocircuit) draw less current, the second transistor draws additional
current to ground.
The analogy is like going from a single-ended output stage in a power amp to a push-pull complementary output stage.
This "locks" the output voltage of the regulator, regardless of any fluctuations in the load.
Improved Diamond output stage - The Diamond output stage as you know is an incredible output stage, one of the best sounding design available. But, it produces a high level of heat in an amplifier design. Ayre designed the Double Diamond output stage to solve the heat issue and we successfully reduced the operating temperature by 35%, keeping it below human body temperature. The new circuit design is a little more powerful than the previous version and has amazing power and control in the lower frequencies.
Servo controlled DC offset - Ayre has replaced the trim pots that they used in the original KX-5 and AX-5
with a much better sounding servo control. This servo not only improves the sound of the unit, but it also keeps the DC offset to less than 15 mv. It will even be able to compensate for incoming DC from a source component (up to a certain level).
