Cyrus Phono Signature Phono Stage
Music produced from a well calibrated turntable, good stylus and the Cyrus Phono Signature is surely one of the finest experiences in audio.
A phono stage is one of the most critically sensitive products within your hi-fi system. Because the signals produced by the needle are so small, they need to be amplified many thousands of times. Consequently, the signal path has to be perfectly clear of inductive fields, each individual component has to be best in class and of the utmost quality.
The rewards though, for getting it right, are legion.
Cyrus Phono Signature has been designed to allow up to four turntables to be permanently connected because many vinyl enthusiasts enjoy multiple turntables, arms or cartridges for different records. It is also possible to calibrate each input separately from the comfort of your armchair.
Each of the four inputs can be accurately matched to the exact specification of the cartridge and the acoustic preference of the user. Adjustment is provided for MC cartridges in; gain, resistance and capacitance. In addition, a switchable warp filter is provided to maximise amplifier performance.
Cyrus has a heritage of over three decades of award-winning products. Since the foundation of the company, Cyrus have won plaudits the world over for their incredible engineering expertise and the finesse of their the application to turn these technologies into ‘real-world’ products .
Most hi-fi companies can claim a number of award for products. At Cyrus, however, we have a number of self-imposed constraints – most obviously, the small size of our products.
It is [relatively] easy to design great sounding products without any physical or budgetary restrictions. It is another thing entirely to consistently defy the conventional wisdom, to challenge every precept in audio and to continuously push the envelope of audio technology.
