    Hi there dudes and dudettes,

    Anyone know anything about the cyrus dac-x? How does it compare with the other DACs that are commonly discussed here?

    Thanks in advance for your advice.
    :)

    It all depends what you are connecting it too and what other equipment you have, I listened to 1 a few weeks ago but to be honest i did not notice any difference to my Cyrus CD8/PSXR so was not totally convinced that a purchase was the right thing to do.
    But if you have a cheaper transport say a DVD player and no dedicated CD player then it might be worth while, i would suggest haveing a dem and see for yourself.

    hman if i were you i would upgrade the CD6 to the new CD8x and add a PSXR and you will have a superb disc spinner and also save yourself money over the DACX.

    That sounds like an excellent idea, I had thought of taking the factory upgrade path. The only reason I was interested in the DAC is that I have an Apple Airport Express through which I wirelessly stream lossless audio files from my computer and I thought the DAC might improve the sound of that as well as the CD6.

    Of course the DAC X will enhance other equipment if thats what you want to use it for so potentially it could be more beneficial to you to use it that way and it will also improve on the CD 6, it's down to you but i would suggest a dem with what you will be useing it with just to make sure.
