The Cyrus gear looks great, there's a lot to be said for matching stacks from an aesthetic standpoint, never mind sonically.

I have to ask the question given the range and nature of the gear you've got: with the same music, how do you rate vinyl vs CD?

 

I haven't heard your speakers, but they obviously have a metal tweeter. I know the Cyrus gear is very revealing, so I suspect that the CD format is likely to sound hyper detailed in comparison, or is vinyl more 'lush' to your ears?

Great looking system. Would I be right in assuming you view your speakers as the weaker link? Turntable looks superb!

I love the formats equally, although I do find more extending listening tends to be more vinyl-based. But I would agree with your comment - vinyl does sound more lush.

I think we would all somehow consider our speakers the weakest link! I am constantly looking at options for upgrading - however finances right now just simply won't allow it! As it is Im a big fan of the XTZ speakers. Previously was running ELAC, and these were a step in the right direction at the time.

No for me I'd be replacing every other component before speakers. :)
