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...

Re: Thommy Hypex nCore build

Suggestion......why not just buy the Nord amp like many have including me for my second system? I understand what you're saying but... I wanna make them myself! I'll have a look at the pricing over the next few days. The most basic nord is amazing value, the one without the op amps, and in a single...

Sorry - patience is running thin with Cadence

Re: Stereo 200 turning off at volume, more power? x300 sig?

Do your comments regarding Cyrus Dacs apply to the QX Dac module? Yup but there are big differences in prices between pieces of kit, especially if you buying secondhand. it depends what you want, and what your budget is. Some equipment is obviously better, that doesn't mean other stuff is poor i do...

Re: What CD player to match my "new" Cyrus III?

If you have budget Cyrus Cdi is excellent. CD8x will be cheap. separate Dac is route to go eventually but a good transport is still important.. I would love to recommend cyrus cd but not sure about reliability sadly as long as you stay clear of SE models you should be fine. lasers etc do go eventua...

Re: Stereo 200 turning off at volume, more power? x300 sig?

I think the SPL of 115 dBA is a red herring here. The SPL was measured using an app on an iPhone so I would be massively surprised if the reading is in any way accurate. If you got some professional measuring kit in, a true reading would probably find you were around 90+. With any hifi I've ever li...

Re: Stereo 200 turning off at volume, more power? x300 sig?

joe, my suggestion of RS was just an immediate thing he could do, they have his kit. they have lots of branches, he would have to take anything. similarly someone suggested different speakers, the ones he has now are big boxes, that go loud already, as far as i can understand? they are not particula...

Re: Stereo 200 turning off at volume, more power? x300 sig?

thanks to the other guys My first thought were to do with hearing, but felt a little shy to ask Have you had you hearing tested? 112db is incredibly loud, for example a brief bit of 92db with my set up has my internal organs feeling it. I only did this as a test. ive never had it that loud before. i...

i know nothing about valves either, but your friend does

i think x300 will sound great, but you specifically are asking for a high volume, they don't guarantee that
