Cyrus dropping silver casework

Postby Robert » Sat Mar 31, 2018 11:09 pm

Cyrus have announced that every unit built from now on will have black casework.

Image

Any silver item returned to Cyrus for servicing will be returned to the customer in black casework
"Silver was always a compromise, every one knows black sounds better" comments Peter Bartlett. "We only made silver casework to appease some of our customer base, but now this year we are making a stand against non black cases and will correct any Cyrus component out in the wild which isnt in the correct case."


This ends the argument once and for all that the black casework components sound the best. viewtopic.php?f=9&t=31260

This has been discussed before on the forum, but this is the first time (allegedly) that it has been formally acknowledged by Cyrus Audio.

I resprayed mine in matt black, but I don't recommend that- it now sounds very dull.

As per previous threads...

Silver is now by request only. They will supply but shops don’t stock.

I think you will find that is old news. Time has moved on and now due to low uptake silver has gone.

But Ha-Ho I could be wrong, Black is Best.

Also please note that the announcement was made BEFORE April 1, Robert’s post was on the 31stMarch.
