    Finishing off with a classic Aussie band saw them many times at Bertie’s and Sebastian’s in Melbourne for newbies try “Boogie”. Great recording

    Cyrus Signature Phono Stage

    The way I read it was he wanted to know if anyone had one so he could ask some questions about it. I was waiting for one. Yes the Cyrus is a great phono stage, I used to have the Doge years ago but regarded the standard phono as just ok, to noisy for me, same as a Rogue 99 pre/with phono, very good , dynamic with good soundstage but again to noisy the iPhono was my last one which was very good, very quiet ,compared favourably and bettered some $500-1000 stages I tried. The Cyrus is in a different league altogether especially with the seperate PSU, it’s a must really. I love the natural sound of it, never sounds forced or edgy, nice open soundstage great bass, lots of detail comes through. I use it with a Wilson Benesch Full circle TT / ACT 0.5 tonearm/Benz micro wood cartridge. A friend has an Ayre acoustics P-5xe, he borrowed the Cyrus to compare and was pretty impressed saying it was a phono he would buy if he moved the Ayre on
