I am a bit surprised by some of your results but that only
goes to show that hifi is very seldom predictable. From what you are saying the
Cyrus transport may be giving a cleaner digital signal with fewer errors then
the MF. I seems clear that you like the DAC section of the MF. Maybe you should
take a look at a separate MF DAC? (I would expect a family resemblance
sonically speaking). I haven't read any recent reviews of their DACs (though
there is a lot of information of modded X DACv3 on the net ). Is there a
difference in sound with the Cyrus with and without the PSU? That is to say
could the difference be related to power supply?
I know Pink Floyd well- One of my favourite
groups. I have seen them twice and Roger Waters once. I am more of an early/mid
fan. The wall was an excellent album but in places it was a bit depressing. The
finial cut was even more depressing.
My favourite track is probably Echoes
played loud and in the dark!
