Incorporating powerful, high efficiency amplification technology developed for the Stereo 200 power amplifier and Lyric all-in-one system. This hybrid design produces a very energetic and hefty 80wpc (into 8ohms), capable of driving many speakers beyond a price point that most £700 amplifiers really ought to. The full power of the amplifier is automatically diverted to the headphone socket when headphones when they're plugged in, making the Cyrus One a very capable headphone amplifier too.
Along with three other analogue inputs, a good quality MM phono stage is also provided, covering all of today's available analogue sources.
The "rebooted" Cyrus One amplifier not only caters for the audiophile, but also for those wanting to stream music from their phone or tablet via high quality aptX Bluetooth.
A pre-amplifier output allows the connection of an offboard power amplifier, or even an additional Cyrus One to bi-amplify a suitably equipped pair of speakers. An AV bypass allows connection to an AV amplifier in order for the Cyrus One to take over the amplification duties for the left and right front loudspeakers.
Speaker Impedance Detection detects automatically detects the impedance of the connected loudspeakers, calibrating itself for optimum quality.
Control of the Cyrus One amplifier is either via the supplied "credit card" remote control, or the free downloadable app which connects to the amplifier via Bluetooth.
The Cyrus One amplifier is available for audition at the little audio company.
