Stellar m700 Mono Amps an upgrade from Ayre V-5xe?


My current setup is Auralic Aries G2>DS Jr>Ayre Kx-5eMP>Ayre V-5xe>Focal Sopra 2.
I was wondering if someone has experience or opinions on swapping my Ayre V-5xe amp for a pair of the Stellar m700s. Would it be an upgrade or ? My system sounds amazing, but I have been so impressed with the PS Audio DAC I have to wonder…
Can’t afford what I want the BHK 250.
I know I can try before I buy. I’m the kinda guy who likes to research and learn from others.


I don’t know if it will be an upgrade for you but I am also struggling with choice between M700s or the BHK250. There are several gently used BHK250s for sale from $4000 to $4500. That makes the decision more difficult.
