Cyrus product time line

Postby skyscaper » Thu Jun 14, 2012 4:25 am

I miss the historical time line of product releases that used to be on the Cyrus site.  Does anyone still have it, or know of an alternative?

Seen it through (or more to the point listened to their gear) from 1997 thru till 2011, starting with the Cyrus Straightline (unofficial C4).

According to the timeline Patriot provided, it is indeed a PSX-R in 1993. The PSX is reckoned to have been introduced in 1985!

Oh dear, how time flies.  I started with a 3 amp in 1995 and finished with the pre xpd qx in 2007, with apa's, smart powers, cd7q's, dab 8.0, av master 8, DVD 8, Fm7, loads of psx and power amp variants along the way.  Back down to just a few boxes now though, and a lot less wire!

I started with a C3 and PSX-R in 1995 too.  Still have them in the loft and they worked fine the last time I fired them up.
