For many music fans the Compact Disc and a high performance CD player will remain the source of choice for many years to come, their CD collection is precious and is their main source of music. Even in mixed media homes, there is a vast collection of music on disc and although ripping it to a NAS drive* and streaming is becoming popular, for many listeners CD remains the best way of collecting high quality music.
Cyrus has been at the forefront of CD development since 1983 when our engineers helped develop one of the very first specialist CD players. Our aim is to make the best CD players in the world, irrespective of price. To achieve this we have developed our own unique Servo Evolution technology which has been specifically engineered to retrieve data from an audio CD with the fewest errors. All our CD players use this high-end audio CD ‘engine’.
We refer to this suite of engineering as a CD ‘engine’ as it covers a complex collection of hardware and software engineering, which makes the sound they produce truly impressive.
Benefits of Servo Evolution include:
• Pulls more data from discs than typical drivers
• Up to 5 times fewer data errors
• Reads more data ‘right first time’ than any other CD system
• Less dependent upon error correction
• Lower noise interference
• Improved laser control accuracy
When evaluating our CD players please ensure that you use original CD’s to evaluate the performance and not CD-R’s as the burning engines in most CD burners devalue the benefits gained by our SE engineering. Some burners do a good job but not all do and it’s a shame to compromise the fine engineering that makes our players sound so valuable.
