Hi Guys,

Personally I would love to see everything but that is probably not possible in 1 day. Therefore I will be making sure to see the following:

What HiFi - certainly like to meet and great the people who produce the mag and chat with us on the forums.

Cyrus - As you will see by my signature I love my Cyrus gear and I am very interested in the new Amps and hope the hear a full on system.

Arcam - those that bash the 'Cyrus sound' are usually Arcam owners so I would like to give them a fair trial.


Cleareraudio - mains cables are always a great topic of debate so I would like to see what differences there are to be had.( I am also taking a couple of friends who are not really 'into' HiFi to give me a more objective opinion!)

Krell - well you just have to....

Meridian - I have always been a fan of Meridian ever since I got into HiFi. I first heard the 506, 551 and A500 about 15 years ago and that was the first time thatI could not stop grinning because of how good it sounded. Shame I could not afford them!

Naim - another brand to be investigated...

Sennheiser - have been thinking about a better headphone set up so it will be good investigation. I always hear a lot of good things about the 650's

Chord Electronics - another one where you just have too!!

Merlin cables - 'cause I like their cables

Monitor Audio - love the speakers and be interested to hear others

Russ Andrews - same reason as Cleareraudio

and some sort of Vinyl specialist too.

Lets see how it goes........

No Messiah, we hate Cyrus cos they're snobs and send me email newsletters like these, with a lousy prize of their DAB tuner:

Dear <>

You may have thought that after the phenomenal
success of our SE range of CD players, our R&D
department would be entitled to rest on their laurels
for a while.

However, here at Cyrus we're determined to bring
our customers products that take advantage of the
latest technological innovations, and continue to
evolve to suit the consumers' ever changing needs
and lifestyles.

So the Cyrus team have continued to remain hard at
work, and the result is a new range of products which
we're delighted to announce will be premiered at the
Bristol Hi Fi Show on 20th to 22nd of February.

What is it? I'm afraid that will remain firmly under
wraps until the show.

However, if you want to be one of the first to
experience our new range of high performance
products, then we would love to see you at the show.

I encourage you to bring a CD you know well so you can
judge for yourself the extra detail and nuances of the
music, that playing it through a Cyrus system can bring.

Print out and bring along the invitation below and, not
only will we guarantee you a slot for you to listen to
your CD on our demonstration system, but we will also
enter you into a prize draw for a Cyrus DAB 8.0 Tuner.

I look forward to seeing you there.

I think it's jolly nice of them to invite you to listen and potentially give you a DAB tuner!


I got the same 'personal' invitation and, while I know that they don't really love me, if I lived anywhere near Bristol I would pop my head in, if only to try and get myself a free new toy and listen to some hi-fi...

...but I would say that, because as my signature shows I am a Cyrus person!

This from Cyrus:

"If you are planning a trip around the Bristol show you may like to drop in on us and hear a brand new amplifier platform for the first time. Obviously you would expect to hear the new amps play with our SE CD players but what you may not be expecting is Cyrus using a laptop as a source!
We are on the lower ground floor in Foyer 2 (next to the main sales desk)"

Well, you should have told Peter to send it out a bit sooner. Bring it up at the next board meeting...

I am particularly not going to hear how the Naim DAC can be worth two grand. Though I wish I was.

Octopo:Did you get a chance to listen to the Naim DAC?

Me? No, sorry. Actually, wanted to hear some high end stuff just for the sport of it (ill never buy it), and have realised i didnt hear much at all.

Maybe ill develop a strategy for these events with experience. didnt have much of a plan, except to get cabling if possible. succeeded there.
