Based on the same circuitry as the Cyrus 7 amp, Cyrus 5 offered nearly all the advantages of its bigger brother, the Cyrus 7. In true Cyrus style if you bought the 5 and later you decided that you would really like more power you could have had your 5 upgraded to full Cyrus 7 specification
This amplifier builds on the traditional Cyrus benefits of superb sound quality, technical excellence and system flexibility as the core of a quality audio system. With a selection of partnering Cyrus source components and system extensions for multi-room or audio-visual applications, the Cyrus 5 was a welcome addition to the Cyrus range.
A dedicated high current headphone amplifier drives a full size ¼” jack socket located on the rear panel of the unit. A separate front panel control to select headphone listening and mute the loudspeakers allows headphones to be permanently connected to the Cyrus 5. The intelligent control system always monitors the connection of headphones to the socket and will restore sound through the loudspeakers if the headphones are disconnected.
