Our award-winning Phono Signature phono stage is lauded as one of the best at any price. The purity of the tiny signal produced from the stylus is preserved throughout the amplification journey, through a deep understanding of circuit design and our relentless pursuit of perfection.
Music produced from a well calibrated turntable, good stylus and the Cyrus Phono Signature is surely one of the finest experiences in audio.Where to buy
A phono stage is one of the most critically sensitive products in hi-fi. Because the signals produced by the needle are so small, they need to be amplified many thousands of times. Consequently, the signal path has to be perfectly clear of inductive fields, each individual component has to be best in class and of the utmost quality.
The rewards though, for getting it right, are legion.
Phono Signature has been designed to allow up to four turntables to be permanently connected because many vinyl enthusiasts enjoy multiple turntables, arms or cartridges for different records. It is also possible to calibrate each input separately from the comfort of your armchair.
Each of the four inputs can be accurately matched to the exact specification of the cartridge and the acoustic preference of the user. Adjustment is provided for MC cartridges in; gain, resistance and capacitance. In addition, a switchable warp filter is provided to maximise amplifier performance.

Once run-in, it delivers a wonderfully clean and crisp sound. Previously, Cyrus’s sonic signature was a little light and bright, trading sonic authority for agility and outright resolution.
Things have changed in recent years with the company’s products showing less of a tendency to compromise solidity and balance. So it proves with this phono stage.
I connected the Phono Signature to give a listen to some LPs. Immediately obvious was a noticeable increase in soundstage depth; it was as if the wall behind the speakers had been pushed back several feet.
