Cyrus FMX, Hypex UcD400, SBTouch

Postby Ianmac » Thu Jun 07, 2018 7:56 pm

Having a bit of a clearout after lashing out on some new gear via the forum.

Cyrus FMX Tuner in Silver. In good condition and working order £150 plus carriage. Little used, I changed the IEC mains inlet connector to rid it of the Cyrus cheapie where the cable fell out rather easily I dont have the original box but it will be well packed. I havent posted pictures as everyone knows what it is

Having upgraded to N cores I have two Hypex UcD400 amps for sale. These were built to stand behind my speakers, fed balanced and used with short speaker cables. The Ucd 400 modules were replaced in sept last year to catch the latest upgrades and have HXR modules fitted.Power supply for each Ucd module is from a Hypex SMPS400a400. They are fully wired complete with the often left out speaker protection circuit, a diagram is available.
They are in DIY cases with 4 speaker terminals offering side and end connectors. A 3A schaffner mains filter is fitted. It would cost over £600 to buy all the bits today, £250 for the pair, plus carriage.
400 watt peak per channel Class D. These bettered the Mono X by a fair margin and a few of us built them.
Note these have balanced inputs. Cables can be sorted out to run in unbalanced mode but really if you can use balanced and short speaker cables do it.

Squeezebox Touch In good condition complete with all boxed items and additional instruction notes. Original SMPS wall wart supply.
The remote has hardly been used but the rubber material its made with has gone sticky on the surface and I havent found anything to cure this. You can see it on the picture.
Ideal for someone looking to start streaming or need one for an office system
£80 plus carriage

Unlike Cyrus products, the speaker terminals have both screw-down turrets and 4mm banana sockets in the top, so you can use spade terminals as well as / instead of bananas. The contact surface area of a spade terminal is typically much greater than a banana, so in electrical terms they are superior - just not quite so convenient for quick connection changes!
