Hi-Fi Choice review Cadence v1.1 - "very usable, seamless and robust"
As of May 2013, Cadence v1.2 is available to download for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. But we're still proud to share a recent review from HiFi Choice who reviewed version 1 of the app, before its redesign.
Like us, Hi-Fi Choice were impressed with the interface and usabiliy of the app and look forward to further developments to that hugely successful first iteration.
Anniversary System wins Hi-Fi News 'Outstanding Product' award
When we announced that the Anniversary System represented our ultimate hi-fi system, we meant it. The entire system has been engineered to maximise performance - and it's living up to the hype.
The system recently bloomed under the critical eye of Hi-Fi News, who awarded it their coveted Outstanding Product award!
Impressed as we are with the system's look and performance, Richard Stevenson proclaimed "the Cyrus system offers plenty of grunt and impeccable timing, crafting a very musical and involving performance."
The system shone as he tested various tracks on it - "Both the top and bottom of the spectrum are treated with an even and well-tempered hand and this serves to highlight the system's truly lush midband."

"The 30th Anniversary System is a thoroughly polished package with outstanding design, erganomics and sound. Its smooth balance and refined musical connection is addictive, appealing to all but hard core rock and dance fans, while the remote and iPad App offer seamless control. With its engaging sound and startling resolution, particularly through the Stream X₂, this is comfortable Cyrus's best to date."

"It's as enthusiastic firing out the Red Hot Chilli Peppers as it is getting to grip with the subtleties and intricacies of Beethoven"
"This player doesn't beat around the musical bush and gets to the emotional heart of the music in earnest - it's as insightful as the very best at this price"
"Low frequencies are beautifully taut and agile, the nimble nature of their delivery giving added impetus to the music"

Hi-Fi Choice give the new Stream XP Qx the X Factor along with the Editor's Choice...
Have you read Jason Kennedy's review on the new Stream XP Qx in Hi-Fi Choice August 2012 edition? If not, don't worry, here are a few quotes to whet your appetite.
"...until the Cyrus showed just how much more detail there is in the mix, and how this information produces a far more focused lifelike rendition of the musician sitting in the soundstage"
"Bass is superb too - really deep and substantial whith no shortage of timbral detail"
"It also has a very engaging sense of immediacy, which brings out timing cues in pretty much everything you play"
"The Stream XP Qx corrals the data in the stream into a highly coherent and engaging presentation"
"Cyrus provided a PSX-R to try with this unit and was right so to do. It has a very positive effect across the board.."
And that is only a few quotes from the four page review. Buy the August's Hi-Fi Choice to get the entire verdict!

Have you read What Hi-Fi's June 20th review on the Cyrus CD6 SE₂? Here's a few quotes to get you started;
"Used in tandem with the matching Cyrus 6a amplifier, the Cyrus character sings through loud and clear. This player is controlled, clear and incredibly detailed."
"And the agile box is ticked, too, the combo of CD player and amp being almost impossibly fast and light on its feet when required."
"No matter: the effective sound tweaks just keep making the Cyrus player even more appealing"
