Product launch: Cyrus streaming range


Recommended Posts

The UK based manufacturer of "shoebox" audio (if you've seen their kit you'll know what I mean) have announced today their range of UPnP / DNLA streamers.

3 models are available:

1. Streamline is an all-in-one device including 30w amplifiers. Pretty much identical device to the Naim UnitiQute (if you've seen that)

2. Stream XP is a streamer with digital inputs via [correction no USB and] SPDIF and built in preamplifier though as far as I can see no analogue input (very similar to Musical Fidelity's M1CliC). Just add a power amp and speakers. No information if the USB input is asynchronous.

3. Stream X (Cyrus says) drops the preamplifier functionality for those who have a DAC already. It still has SPDIF and USB inputs.

 

All three support AIFF, FLAC and WAV (plus MP3, AAC and WMA) unto 24/96.

 

Addition: the USB port is (as commented below) for portable storage device and also iPod connection.

PS forgot to say Cyrus have also developed a controller combining IR for existing equipment with full colour two-way control of the Streamer

...in my opinion / experience...

While I agree "Everything may matter" working out what actually affects the sound is a trickier thing.

And I agree "Trust your ears" but equally don't allow them to fool you - trust them with a bit of skepticism.

keep your mind open... But mind your brain doesn't fall out.
