Where to Buy

Servo Evolution

Our SE platform is specifically engineered to retrieve data from an audio CD with the fewest errors. To provide ideal data output for hi-fi, Cyrus controls the whole electromechanical servo system providing superior quality audio than previously possible with conventional drives.

Pure Operation

By removing the onboard DAC, the CD Xt Signature works purely as a digital transport. Removing additional circuitry allows the CD Xt Signature to focus purely on data retrieval and a high performance digital output.

Connectivity

Optical and coaxial outputs provide connectivity to a variety of DAC’s. Our very best digital output stage has been engineered for the CD Xt Signature with signal re-clocking for extremely low jitter.

Precision Loading Drive

CD Xt Signature features the latest generation of our slot load CD technology. This quiet and low contact mechanism provides myriad benefits to the traditional tray method of loading a CD whilst also de-cluttering the front panel for an improved aesthetic.

Power Supply

The CD Xt Signature features an over-specified linear power supply which provides isolation for precision parts of the circuit ensuring the most accurate reproduction possible.

Overview

The CD Xt Signature is a dedicated CD transport which produces audiophile sound quality. It is manufactured with a range of performance enhancing techniques and components, including an evolved version of our Servo Evolution technology.

Two separate power supplies provide huge reserves of power, which eliminates the need for a PSX-R₂. The sound produced by the CD Xt Signature is truly stunning, providing a room filling wide and high soundstage.

Partner with a DAC XP Signature and two Mono X 300 Signatures for an amazing experience.

FAQ

Q. Will my Cyrus CD player play CD-R compilations that I have made myself?
A. Cyrus CD players will play most CD-R1 (write once) discs, but the discs must be 'closed session' recordings. Many CD-RW discs are also supported, but again the session must be closed after writing to the disc.

Q. Will my Cyrus CD player play MP3 files?
A. No, this type of compression system is designed to enable compact storage of music files on a computer with a consequential loss of sound quality. Music on CDs must be in WAV format for a Cyrus CD player to read it.

Q. What is Servo Evolution?
A. At the core of our CD players is our unique Servo Evolution engineering. The Servo Evolution 'engine' is the most accurate CD data recovery system in the world and has been specifically developed for audiophiles to deliver a far superior CD performance. Where a standard CD player will rely on error correction to fill in the gaps when data is not correctly read, a Cyrus CD player is specifically designed to pick up far more data ‘right first time’ to ensure that the resulting signal is as detailed as possible.

Q. What is the best way to upgrade my CD player?
A. If you have a compatible model, our PSX-R2 can be added to further improve the sound quality from your CD player, bringing benefits in resolution, detail, and sound staging. Alternatively, you may wish to consider upgrading to a higher specification model. Full details can be found here.

Q. Why can't I upgrade my CD Xt Signature with a PSX-R2?
A. The CD Xt Signature has been designed effectively with a built-in separate power supply, enabling separation between the motor and precision audio circuits. This is not possible on all Cyrus models but this enables the CD Xt Signature to achieve its best possible performance without the need for a separate PSX-R2.
