Re: Sound nearly gone from DAC XP Sig

Thanks Joe, Just to update this thread, the DAC XP has been returned to Cyrus for a half price repair which I think is fair as it is 6 months out of warranty, however I'm very disappointed that it broke in the first place. I think this is the first bit of kit that I've had go wrong, apart from a bul...

YouTube HiFi Vlogs

I have never really been one to read blogs or watch vlogs, I occasionally read Sunbeams Musing when he links to them in his posts but that’s about it. However over the past year I’ve started following a few vloging musicians on YouTube. The other day I came across Paul McGowen’s (PS Audio) vlog via ...

Re: Sound nearly gone from DAC XP Sig

Wow, just checked the Cyrus site £300 flat fee for a repair! Pretty disappointing on a 2.5 year old bit of kit :'(

Re: Sound nearly gone from DAC XP Sig

Ian B, any update, have you spoken with Cyrus? I went to listen today and the annoying mute while changing the volume happened. I tried powering it on and off but it didn't fix it. Now tonight I've lost about 50% of the volume, max (0db) is comfortable listening :( I tried the factory reset to no av...

Re: Sound nearly gone from DAC XP Sig

This is a worry as mine did this last night for about 30 seconds, then resumed normal volume. ??? When I moved my system the other month I had another odd issue when it was first reconnected, whereby when I changed the volume it dropped the signal to a very low level (almost inaudible), and then res...

Re: Help, How to clean/ reset a Volume Pot?

Well a slight update, the issue doesn't actually seem to have gotten any worse, thank goodness. When I replaced the speaker leads, I did so fumbling around from atop the speakers, and I stuck positive cable into the gap under the string clip instead of through the hole, hence the near total lack of ...

Help, How to clean/ reset a Volume Pot?

Hi, Not Cyrus related, but I know there is a host of electronics knowledge in here. I've just bought a 90's Kenwood Mini System and the right channel was player quieter than the left. You can see this visually by the peak meter on the power amp. It's source independent and I've tried swapping the ap...

Re: Bristol HiFi Show 2018

One other thing I forgot to mention, which I found interesting was the B&W demo of their 700 series. I've read many times on forums that nothing much as changed in speaker design over the years, great speakers are great speakers, etc. So it was interesting when B&W did comparisons between th...

Re: Bristol HiFi Show 2018

Today was the first time I’d managed to make despite living around Bristol my whole life. What I found very surprising was I didn’t hear anything that sounded great, I know that ironically I hifi show is not a good place to listen to hifi, but even so, I was expecting some of the high end systems to...
