What’s so good about this system?

We’re all familiar with using music streaming services like TIDAL on our phones, but with both TIDAL and Deezer (and I’m sure many others to follow) now offering lossless or even High-definition Audio as part of their services. Many died-in-the-wool audiophiles (the kind for whom anything other than a 12” vinyl disc would be considered sacrilege) are now not just accepting streaming, they are positively seeking out ways to build such premium audio quality into their existing systems.

Moreover – for customers curious about the performance capable from such services, Cyrus Audio now has a range of powerful streaming solutions.

 

But hang on…surely you should just connect your phone with TIDAL wirelessly via Bluetooth? Well – although convenient, that would be a big compromise in audio quality. Bluetooth, even with the higher ‘bandwidth’ aptX codec will seriously constrict the data transferred and the resulting loss of quality is clearly audible…

 

Now, though, Cyrus have partnered with Google and TIDAL to bring streaming to their highly acclaimed Cyrus ONE with uncompressed, unrestricted quality.

 

The Cyrus ONE is a remarkable audio product offering prodigious amounts of power – capable of driving speakers costing tens of thousands of pounds, for little more than a hi-fi starter system. Cyrus ONE also has a built-in ‘Phono-stage’ – a high-quality pre-amplifier that allows direct connection of a ‘turntable’ (so vinyl junkies won’t be restricted too much in choice). The addition of Google’s Chromecast and a free three month subscription to TIDAL Hi-Fi (their £20/ month premium service) completes the package.

 

Using Chromecast Audio is a revelation. Firstly, one of the remarkable attributes of the diminutive device is the quality of its on-board Digital to Analogue Converters. (DACs) – Google use a high specification audio DAC – a chip considered by most audiophiles to be more than up to the job of reproducing high-quality and high-definition music.

 

Secondly, and perhaps of more importance – is the ease of use. Google has perfected the seamless integration with apps such as TIDAL, and even Deezer or Spotify, making sure that although your complete system control is handled in the phone, track selection, volume etc., the data comes to the amplifier via a direct connection to the internet from the Chromecast – completely uncompressed and it couldn’t be simpler to use.

 

Don’t take our word for it though. Why not call up one of the dealers listed above and arrange your audition? Even if you’re just curious as to how good it really can be, it would be our pleasure to introduce you to the Cyrus Experience.
