I got the opportunity to buy the cyrus one for a good price (770aud) to go along with my elac dbr62 speakers in a nearfield setup, do you think this is worth getting over the topping pa5 (550aud) or the smsl ao200 (360aud)

Yes. The toppjng will be all the rage with the usual chi-fi reviewers until the successor comes out in 6 months.

Cyrus.

thanks for all the replies, i went with the cyrus because of the price and ill return it if i need to, i have topping already for headphones but i dont have the ability to test either of the speaker amps unfortunately. i now just need to decide on speakers to go with it since i like the look of both the wharfedale evo 4.1 and the elac dbr62

Comparing those (and preferably others) by ear is essential before purchase.
yeah i wish I could have but there was no way unfortunately, i went ahead and bought the cyrus + elacs based on reviews and talking to people directly who had tested that combination so hopefully its good when it arrives
