What speakers do you use with Cyrus amp?

Postby angelface » Thu Jun 01, 2017 10:42 am

If you have either a Cyrus integrated amp or one or more Cyrus power amps, what speakers do you use?
or when you last had a Cyrus integrated amp or one or more Cyrus power amps, what speakers did you use?

Interesting topic.
I'm currently using B&W 804d2 in my main system.
But I'm looling to install a second system in a mancave >:D so I'm very curious about the result of this poll.

I have tried Kef,Totem,PMC and Epos over the years.
My personal preference is for Epos and I am now back with the Epos M12.2s.

I used Dynaudio floorstanders with the Cyrus amps I had. I found them to be a very good match together.

When I had Cyrus Mono X power amps I used them originally with Spendor A5 floorstanders and then with Focal 1008Be standmounts. IMHO they worked well with both.

ATC SCM 40's.

I needed a pair that would work really close to the rear wall.

Previously a pair of Mission 753's.
