What speakers are you planning to use with the Cyrus? I heard the Lyric 09 with Tannoy Precision 6.1 and I got the feeling the Cyrus could do with a smoother sounding speaker.sixofnine said:I'm changing my Solo Neo for a new all-in-one and have decided to get one of these two. I have the chance to buy the Cyrus for just £100 more than the Arcam. Any advice on which I should go for please?
Agreed: That's why I asked what speakers he has. If he's happy with Arcam/Epos combo I would stick with it.Superaintit said:Please do not change on a forum advice alone!
Having owned both arcam and cyrus gear I cannot think of 2 brands that are more apart! Arcam is smooth maybe slightly laidback and cyrus is detailed and definitely upfront. I must add that I haven't heard the Lyric but a very big change would be needed to let them come close in presentation! All in all, also considering the Hdmi port, the way you use it and the speakers you currently own, I strongly advice to stick with Arcam unless you demo with your speakers in your home and are blown away by the Cyrus.
