What makes me really cringe is seeing a potted plant on top of a speaker (yes there are people who do that).


Totally agree and I’m one of them ;) it’s that or divorce, my wife’s f.....g horticulturalist.

Re: A last, long goodbye to Cyrus

Steve, The discussion is not about how well made they are. You clearly have not seen or heard the cable under discussion and therefore are not qualified to make a informed judgment on the Townsend cable. Please find a way to listen and then you can make informed comments, good or bad and your point ...

Re: A last, long goodbye to Cyrus

I have spent today with SteveC listening to some great music on his system which has similarities with my own (we both have the same amplification). Obviously the aim was to hear what effect the loan Townsend cables have. First of all, they have a smoother and sweeter gain over Steve’s existing Linn...

Re: A last, long goodbye to Cyrus

I’m in the same boat as Steve, as we have both moved away from Cyrus. I borrowed the PS Audio Nu-Wave Phono Converter for a home demo and then passed it over to Steve.

Re: How do I get started with Digital Storage and Playback?

I would recommend you buy a NAS. If you use a laptop or main computer for storing and listening to your music you will need to leave it on permanently, as starting up each time will be a faff.

Re: StreamX versus Auralic G1

I have just sold my StreamX Signature and purchased the Aries G1. They do both have slightly different sound presentations with Cyrus being thicker and the Aries slightly clinical but certainly more detailed. I have had Cyrus kit for more than ten years and had got used to its presentation. My new s...
