Cyrus audio components capture the excitement in music with the speed, power and agility that makes other gear sound vague and temporally blurred. With the same enthusiasm as top auto aficionados, Cyrus engineers are devoted to design components with class-leading dynamics and fine detail resolution that keeps music alive and engaging. Over many years of experience, Cyrus has developed more advanced engineering in-house solutions than typically found in a company of its size and combined these in products fine-tuned to sound right. Amongst tough competition, Cyrus continues to deliver more than a taste of sporty high-end performance normally only found in the big metal-work boutique brand and this enthusiasm is recognized in the dozens of awards clocked up.
Cyrus engineers its products for global safety, energy and emission standards with all products available in the US meeting strict FCC requirements. As a result of FCC requirements, the latest US version of the very popular CDi CD player for a while exceeded the performance of the UK version. Because US versions use a custom built 115V transformer, and because production runs are very small batches (dozens versus hundreds or thousands typically made in large scale Asian manufacturing) you can be sure to get fresh products rather than ones that have been sitting in warehouses for sometimes years.
New for 2018 is the unique Cyrus ONE HD 100 watt (into 6 ohms) compact integrated amplifier with high resolution 32-bit DAC, phonostage, aptx® HD Bluetooth, dedicated class A/B headphone output and more. The higher power output for this type of product will get the best out of the many speakers and pricing is very competitive for its features and sound quality.
Since its launch in 2016 the unique four turntable input Phono Signature phonostage has benefited from several great reviews. Amongst its several desirable features is the ability to change moving coil cartridge settings by remote control on the fly as you listen to the sonic effects from the comfort of your armchair!
In digital source components, Cyrus CD players have been a favorite amongst hi-fi enthusiasts for many years. The latest CDi player features the fourth generation high resolution Servo Evolution technology CD Engine for accurate first time data extraction from the CD followed by a superb 32-bit DAC. Cyrus has been equally strong in Streamers and all the streamers are highly regarded (The Cyrus XP streamer winning the What HiFi award 3 years in a row). The added functionality of internet radio adds to the appeal of these streamers as does Cyrus's easy to use Cadence ipad/iphone/ipod touch/android compatible app that puts a lot of control in your hand.
While compact in size, all the iconic half width shoe-box Cyrus amplifiers have high current capability to drive the most demanding loudspeaker loads and feature advanced protection circuitry. Preamplifiers and integrated amplifiers have headphone outputs and many include built in DACs for a variety of digital sources. The Stereo 200 hybrid power amplifier has been very well received and can be used with dedicated preamplifiers or with the preamp output of the integrated amplifiers.
Precision metal alloy die-cast housings add to the high performance of Cyrus products by controlling vibrations, shielding sensitive electronic stages from interference and eddy currents, and by providing heat dissipation. Destined for a long life cycle, they are meant to be reused rather than thrown in the trash. Cyrus components are also green friendly by containing no lead, mercury, cadmium, chromium, mercury, PBB, PBDE (RoHS compliant) and having very low standby current.
The modular Cyrus design philosophy of the classic components embraces upgradeability. Cyrus components can work in tandem with additional higher powered amplifiers and/or be upgraded with the popular PSXR2 intelligent external power supply - try the Cyrus System Builder to configure your system.
