Re: Goodbye to Cyrus (Almost)

I received by courier the pre and power amp yesterday. I took me a while to fathom the switch-on quirks and to get it to play.

Re: FS: Bel Canto DAC3.5VBmk2 + VBS1 modified [BLACK] £1445

be interested how you get on using them as front end for active speakers , i tried it again recently as a pre but it does not quite have the imaging or organic sound of a good pre amp . it may be a bit clinical but keep us posted . don`t forget to take them off sale on the wam megastore if you can

Re: Cyrus announcement at Munich High End

Which is exactly what Cyrus should be making if they are to survive. Cyrus's sweetspot has always been high mid-range. Aspirational perhaps for beginners but something to dream about. The new One will eventually replace the 6/8 series. Most members are already committed to Cyrus or at least that is...
