Re: Cyrus Lyric 09 Over Current

Sounds like something is shorting as the current can't be that big if the volume is low for HT bypass.

Are you using single run of cables or biwiring?

Do you get the message if you connect a single speaker to left channel?

Re: Cyrus 5 amp and PSXR

If a Cyrus box does not have socket it does not take PSX-R so no.

Often components have blanking plate as this avoids manufacturing different plates for different models.

I imagine the 7 had the PSX-R socket.

Re: Cyrus components failing

My NAD CD player (sold to my daughter a few years ago) has packed up.

It is older than my daughter who got married in 2016!

Re: Christmas films

When I was young, Sound of Music was always on at Christmas.

When I was in primary school my parents went to see it at the cinemas and bought the LP. We knew all the songs off by heart.

As a teenager I hated the film..

Re: Naiming and shaming

Absolutely..

I have heard some great power amps (not Nords but Naim, Bryston, Leema) and I loved X300 Sigs more. I was lucky enough to hear most of them with my speakers.

At the moment they are out of budget but looking out for some X200 Sigs.

Re: Best speaker upgrade for AvMaster/XPA/Smartpower: advice please

For surround sound 1) use your best speakers and amps for the fronts 2) Try to get a matching (as fronts, same make and if possible same tweeter) speaker for centre 3) Backs are less important (I had some Eltax rears and they were fine, Spendor wall mounted speakers were better!) 4) Get a sub if you...

Re: Naiming and shaming

I had X200’s. Very good but not a patch on my Nord. My problem with Nords is that I can't demo them. The other power amps I heard made me realise that all power amps do not sound the same. The very good and expensive Bryston did not match my taste or my speakers IMHO. I just love the Cyrus sound an...

Re: Pre amp suggestions please

I have a friend who had a CDi and tried a pre3vbs with an LNS through Mono X power amps. He was really disappointed with it and now has a Naim system. If you need HT bypass this makes it difficult with passives unless you buy new. Not to mention the problems with matching to turntables which I know ...
