it's not a bad idea, because if you decide that you aren't completely happy with the sound of the cd6, you can get it upgraded to the stunning cd6se for about £300, saving £100 off the retail of the se. You can't lose, buddy.
More questions sorry ;-) Im currently using a denon dv2930 as a cd player and its not bad a bit boring perhaps and i recently nicked my dads arcam 7se for a play but after initial good impressions found it a bit brash and muddled at high volume. Anyhoo point is would the cyrus possibly be on the bright side through my onkyo 875 and quads?
I cant say mate. What i can say is that the cyrus is fast detailed with excellent timing. In some setups (ie mine) it can be a wee bit lean and bright but counters with excellent rythym, clean taught bass and just all round musicality. If you can, listen to it in your system and make your own mind up. Im selling mine because i want to buy a cheaper cd7q - save money and get something warmer (hopefully).
