Cyrus Audio's new One Linear loudspeaker was developed to perfectly compliment their Cyrus One integrated amplifier. A loudspeaker is usually produced to work with a range of different manufacturer's amplifiers, and while this is the case with the One Linear, they have been designed to work perfectly with Cyrus' own hybrid Class D amplification like the all-in-one Lyric and the Cyrus One integrated amplifier.
The rear ported Cyrus One Linear loudspeakers use a 5" woven Kevlar mid/bass driver, chosen for their extremely low weight and speed, and a 1" soft dome HF unit. Impedance is average at 86dB, but represent a nice easy load with regards to their 8ohm impedance, allowing them to work well with budget amplifiers.

Cyrus have produced the One Linear to have a relatively flat frequency response, although this can be tailored to personal taste by experimenting with their position in relation to the wall behind them - but they've been designed to work at their best around 10-30cm from the rear wall. This makes the most of their bass and midrange response, which contributes to the wide 50Hz-24kHz frequency range at +/-3dB.
The good thing about these specially designed loudspeakers though is that they're not excessively priced - they're a very affordable bookshelf speaker in terms of the sort of speaker the Cyrus One can be partnered with.
