Along with meticulous attention to detail and rhythm, the Cyrus also offers a spacious and engaging sound...the 8 DAC is everything that you would want from a Cyrus: clear and precise. Play Oasis’ Wonderwall from a CD and Liam’s signature vocals are delivered with great clarity alongside the jangling guitars' (What Hi-Fi magazine)
'It has impeccable timing and works with ruthless efficiency, determined to deliver every ounce of detail from a recording...no note is allowed to wander free, and dynamics are controlled brilliantly. There’s also a muscular quality to the sound that adds authority at either end of the frequency range' (What Hi-Fi magazine)
'To put the Cyrus to the test, we streamed a 1411kbps file of the Jurassic Park OST from a laptop. The 8 DAC is more than adept at handling the complex arrangements: instruments are separate and identifiable, and sit nicely in an open, spacious soundstage' (What Hi-Fi magazine)
'While it’s unfussy about music styles, its transparent clarity means that flaws in lower-resolution recordings will show up. We’d also suggest taking some care with partnering equipment such as racks, as different surfaces really can affect sound' (What Hi-Fi magazine)
