Cyrus 2

Description

Essentially similar to Cyrus One, the Cyrus Two provides even greater drive capability for systems requiring more power.

The benefits acquired by moving to the Cyrus Two include an increase in headroom and wider dynamic capability, the extra power allowing it to respond to whatever demands are placed upon it by either the music or the partnering speakers.

In addition, it incorporates a more refined MC section to match and optimise the performance of the most esoteric cartridges available.

But it doesn't stop there. For music lovers wanting even greater power in reserve, the Cyrus Two can be upgraded with the addition of the PSX outboard power supply.

correctly serviced and set up to original specs, they are good enough to make you wonder why you bothered spending more on fancier kit

Certainly more powerful but not as musical as the original Cyrus Mk1.
It's my view that all amps sound better when driven towards their full output

Dispongo de varios amplificadores. He tenido unos cuantos mas que fui vendiendo o cediendo a terceros. Cuando adquirí el Cyrus two con el complemento psx, no sabia ni imaginaba que el salto de nivel que experimente en el año 1988 seria irrepetible en el futuro, a pesar de haber adquirido con el tiempo otros amplificadores de nivel.
El amplificador anterior al Cyrus fué un Pioneer sa 510 (30 w ×2). Pasé de la dulzura y suavidad del Pioneer al sonido a escala natural del Cyrus. Energico, contundente, capaz de mover cualquier caja y no arrugarse ante nada.
Su carroceria minimalista y de plástico, su ajustado precio, y su pequeño tamaño, esconden un gigante de alta gama. Que nadie se engañe, su sección de phono es fantastica, su distorsión bajisima, y con pantallas de mas de 87 db de sensibilidad, te ofrece una escena sonora a tamaño natural. Si tenemos en cuenta su precio no existe rival. En este apartado tiene un 10 de 10.

Ok, I am a little biased as I originally had a Cyrus 1 Mk2 that I bought new when 16 in 1985. I believe both amplifiers produce results way in excess of their price range. They might be OAPs now but that goes for the rest of us too...!

More powerful and smoother sounding than the Cyrus One, although still on the bright side of neutral. Bass depth and control improves with the external PSX power supply. Great MM/MC phono stage.
