CDi

Cyrus CD players have a history of class-leading performance, but none have so consistently wowed critics as the remarkable CDi. Judged the best CD player for six consecutive years by What Hi-Fi? Magazine. The CDi is without doubt one of the most influential integrated CD players ever designed.

You’ve never really heard your CDs until you’ve listened to them on a CDi.

CDi - Design Philosophy

Our CD players are better because they generate far less background noise than most. We call this our SE or Servo-Evolution technology. The principle itself is quite simple. Usually the laser mechanism (servo) which reads the data from a disc makes tiny movements side to side quite quickly to re-read miss-read data – this create ‘servo noise’ and that impacts the ‘noise-floor’ limiting the quality of the sound output.

The principle objective with our CD players is to extract the data on the disc as accurately as possible the first time – and that is only possible through some very careful design and calibration in both the hardware and software elements of the player.

The CDi is our ‘integrated’ model in the range, including a built in ‘Digital to Analogue’ converter, converting that digital data into a beautiful analogue signal, using an extremely refined 32bit DAC.

The circuit of the CDi has been designed in 2 discrete sections, allowing the product to be upgradeable through the addition of our separate power supply (the PSX R2). This addition completely isolates the DAC section of the product, improving timing and eliminating any intermodulation which can impact the delicate analogue signals output. Whilst not necessary for outstanding performance, this addition is a valuable upgrade for the serious audiophile.

After a very long wait i finally have bought my new Cyrus CDi player. I have been a Cyrus fan for years and i have always been impressed with my current player. This new player is simply something else. I cant believe how amazing CDs can really sound.

In fact, Cyrus says this is its best-sounding CD player yet. And, as much as we’ve loved the company’s previous models, we’re more than happy to back that claim. – What Hi-Fi

“Compact, elegant, yet minimalistic look. Very good sound compared to even much more expensive CD players. Its sound has a clearly perceptible analogue characteristic and detailed, colorful and gentle treble. Open, but not over-imposing, with smooth midrange and a contoured and controlled bass. Excellent imaging.”

“Conclusion: Only in a couple is man strong, only in a couple does man make sense. As beautiful as the CD player from Cyrus may be – in order to truly shine sonically it also needs a partner – the external power supply unit. Working together. Please do not separate them. In our test, we have reached the limits of the old CD format. The resolution was there, imaging was very convincing – everything was reproduced in a big way.”
