Cyrus Three at Richer

Postby The Far North » Sat Mar 09, 2019 12:20 pm

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 flash sale, so £1749 and available in either Stone or Stealth.

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 systems. It's certainly a product that locks you into Cyrus for any future repairs, so that would be enough to rule it out for me.

When did they change the name?

No Idea, as I don't keep up to date with Cyrus products. I'm not intending to change any of mine until they breakdown, and I'm really not sure I would choose Cyrus in the future. :-\

Their web pages (once you can navigate the mess of bad links) suggest the Lyric is known as 'Cyrus Three' in some countries.

perhaps part of the name is that this is the 3rd gen lyric?

There's also various trade-in deals on Cyrus at the moment - just check the usual dealers.

I suspect a cyrus 0ne HD does a very similar job if you add chromecast audio.

i expect this product to be dropped soon

"dropped soon" - Just as well - to my mind the Cyrus 3 wins the prize for the ugliest hifi unit on the market.

+1. Definitely marmite, but with 50% off & listening with eyes closed... Would have to be 100% off to tempt me.

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 information from your CDs than you'd have thought possible. With more information available, subtle musical detail becomes startling clear and the music's emotion gives you goose bumps.
