Re: Repairs

Richer Sounds still seem to be willing to sell you a 5 year guarantee (warranty?) on Cyrus kit, so I wonder if that's just a gamble or if they have better access to repair facilities. I'm guessing the former. :-\

Re: Repairs

"No longer supported, repair might be possible in some markets" for the components in yellow, but no idea whether any of those markets might include the UK, even though that's almost certainly their biggest market. ???

Re: Cyrus Three at Richer

I suspect a cyrus 0ne HD does a very similar job if you add chromecast audio. Apart from: The finest CD player At the heart of the THREE is one of the finest CD players available. Using a custom version of the award-winning Servo Evolution disc reading system, the THREE is able to extract more info...

Re: are you on other hifi forums?

I have CU as one of the tabs that automatically opens on Firefox (yes, I know that's bad), so I appear to be here a lot more than I actually am. pfm is where I spend most of my hifi related time, quite a bit of it in the "off topic" section, but also reading up the audio thoughts. I'm a me...

Re: a petition that already has 3.3 million signatures

Just tried to sign this. The confirmation email with the link went to the Junk folder, so I guess that might say something. ???

Re: Cyrus Three at Richer

does this suggest that this product is about to be dropped? i suspect most people would find the cyrus HD a cheaper product that can do most th8ngs the lyric can. how people would use the high quality cd drive? No idea Chris, but I do see people talking about downsizing or looking for second room s...

Cyrus Three at Richer

While I'm guessing there's not a big market amongst regulars on here, you may have been asked to advise on a system that doesn't take over the room. :) Cue the Cyrus Three on sale at Richer until the start of the week, reduced from £2999 to £1999 and then a further reduction of £250 during this flas...

I just checked mine and it's software version 1.2, so I would have thought that 4.3 would be able to support FLAC files.

Re: FLAC files on portable external drive problems

Mine were all ripped with dbPoweramp, and I think you should be able to download a free trial of this. You could then rip some CDs as FLACs and load them onto the drive and see if you can access them?

Re: FLAC files on portable external drive problems

I haven't tried any other formats on it, as it was bought for the specific purpose of loading FLACs onto it. The Streamline was bought ex-dem from Audio-T in Manchester in November 2013, and has never been updated since.

Re: FLAC files on portable external drive problems

I've been using a FAT32 Toshiba drive to play FLACs on my Streamline V1, and no problems at all. A check shows I bought it as long ago as July 2014, and it has never missed a beat. It's the long discontinued one at the link below.

Vienna Acoustic Haydn Grand Symphony Edition

VA speakers used to be very popular here, but I haven't seen much chat about them recently. This pair of standmounts are for sale on pfm and the listing has plenty decent photos showing their condition. https://pinkfishmedia.net/forum/threads/vienna-acoustics-haydn-grand-symphony-edition-se-premium-...

What's older than Classic?

pfm has an ad by Fanthorpe's offering £295 off a PSX-R2 when bought with a Cyrus Classic product as shown in the ad. None of my Cyrus kit is as new as their "Classic" list, so is mine now vintage? ;) https://pinkfishmedia.net/forum/threads/purchase-any-cyrus-classic-or-signature-series-pro...
