Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the Cyrus Phono Signature.
Phono Signature has been designed to allow up to four turntables to be permanently connected because many vinyl enthusiasts enjoy multiple turntables, arms or cartridges for different records. Each of the four inputs can be accurately matched to the exact specification of the cartridge and the acoustic preference of the user. Adjustment is provided for MC cartridges in; gain, resistance and capacitance. In addition a switchable warp filter is provided to maximise amplifier performance.
|Analogue RCA Phono||4 pairs|
|Analogue RCA||1 pair|
|XLR Balanced||1 pair|
|PSX-R Upgrade Port||Yes|
So the phono stage is a fit and forget box is it? Not according to the vinyl playing engineers at Cyrus. “Our prime engineering aim is to satisfy the most demanding hi-fi fan, so clearly sound quality was our dominant goal. However, with the addition of remote control memory functions, we have enabled audiophiles not only to match their cartridge perfectly but also to interact with and correct frustrating tonal limitations in real time. Vinyl fans know all records sound different, some being mastered/pressed than others”.
Cyrus Phono Signature Phono Stage
The Cyrus Phono Signature will be available late November.
4 single ended inputs, with balanced and single ended outputs. The preamp is moving magnet and moving coil.
Each of the four inputs can be accurately matched to the exact specification of the cartridge and the acoustic preference of the user. Adjustment is provided for MC cartridges in; gain, resistance and capacitance. In addition a switch-able warp filter is provided to maximise amplifier performance.
The resistance and gain and capacitance can be altered from the front panel, and also from a remote control. There is a vu meter to help set gain.
The signature phono stage will have an input for a PSX-R.
There is a 5 year warranty on registration. Please call us to pre-order, there will only be a small initial run of units.
There will be an opening trade in offer of £200 against your existing phono stage. More information as it becomes available.
We offer part exchange against this and anything else that we sell.
We heard this product briefly a few months ago and were impressed. We compared it to the Rega Aria Phono Stage and although we had a short listen we were both impressed and felt that it stood extremely well to the Rega – which is our reference and reasonably similarly prices.
We expect the Cyrus Phono Signature to be available in November and to cost £1195.
More information will follow as we have it.
