Ayre Acoustics writes: "What's the big deal about a volume control? It's super simple; turn the knob or push a button on your remote control, and the volume changes. Easy, right?  Easy for you and me, but from an engineering perspective, the volume control is one of the most challenging and critical parts of the entire circuit path! That's why we designed the Ayre VGT (Variable Gain) volume control. By changing the gain of the preamp rather than attenuating the music, we maintain the greatest sonic integrity and highest signal-to-noise ratio possible."

"It took over a year and countless resources to develop the VGT volume module, but when you're controlling a fully-balanced, zero-feedback, true-to-life music system, nothing else will do!"
