Cyrus (Persian:کورش Korush) is the given name of a number of Persian kings. Most notably it refers to Cyrus the Great. Cyrus is also the name of Cyrus I of Anshan (ca. 650 BC), King of Persia the grandfather of Cyrus the Great; and Cyrus the Younger (died 401 BC), brother to the Persian King Artaxerxes II of Persia.
Cyrus, as a word in English, is the Latinized form of the Greek Κῦρος, Kȳros, from Old Persian

    Discussion thread: Cyrus Audio launches Classic Phono pre-amplifier

    Cyrus is billing this as more of an update over the Phono Signature stage it's replacing rather than a complete redesign, but that could still make it a big deal for those serious about their vinyl. Read the news.

    Advice on Mission 752 speakers

    I’m looking for advice on my Mission 752 speakers. I’ve had the speakers for more than 30 years and they still perform excellently combined with a Cyrus integrated amplifier. They were originally paired with a Cyrus IIIi which was replaced about 7 years ago with a Cyrus 6 DAC amp so I could...

    Cyrus CD1 - No sound

    Hi, while reassembling my system I tried to force my Rega turntable PSU TT four pin plug into the PSR -X socket in back of my Cyrus CD1 CD player (not on purpose of course - got my components mixed up!). The CD was in standby mode (red light) while I was doing this. Since then I am not getting...

    To Cyrus or not to Cyrus?

    Hello all, I currently own a Rega Brio; quite happy with it. In the past I owned a Cyrus 7 amp for almost 20 years, when it broke down I replaced it with the Brio. Still, I’m quite partial to the Cyrus sound and design (still have CD7). Currently there are offers for a Cyrus 3 + PSX-r and a...

    Cyrus Lyric/Three vs Naim Uniti Atom?

    As a second system, I'm running a Cyrus THREE all-in-one system (it's a later version of the Cyrus Lyric 09) with a pair of B&W 705 Signature speakers.

    Cyrus Two or Rega Brio?

    Can anyone please give an opinion on whether it would be better to spend £200 servicing a Cyrus Two amp with a PSX versus spending £300 to buy a used but recent Rega Brio to partner with a Planar 2 and MA Silver 200 G6 speakers. I was about to spring for the C2 service but the Brio has popped...

    Cyrus One HD Vs Audiolab 9000A

    I'm tempted to step up from my Cyrus One HD. I find the Cyrus a little bright with my Dali Oberon 5s. I like the idea of the Audiolab 9000A, coupled to the 9000CDT. I do most of my listening via CD, FLAC via Sonos Connect, and via Bluetooth (Aptx HD on the Cyrus, would be LDAC on the Audiolab)...
