Phono Signature design

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 superb.

Cyrus’ 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 using the included ir14 remote control

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.

The sound of this half-width preamplifier is astonishingly classy: the reproduction is vivid and highly dynamic, clear and transparent, while the imaging is extremely three-dimensional and spacious. If you add the optional external power supply, the Phono Signature delivers a sensational performance, especially in view of the price.

This left me distinctly impressed with the Phono Signature.

It is comfortably one of the best phono stages I’ve ever used, one able to get the best out of almost any cartridge, whether MM or MC. It can resolve subtle detail like few others.

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.

“An extremely versatile phono stage with all the possibilities that the true vinyl adept and collector will certainly appreciate. Don’t be deterred by the four inputs if you expect to use only one, that one input is already so beautiful as it justifies the cost of the whole.”

“In the Phono Signature working on its own, the signature of Cyrus was always recognisable in terms of agile, rhythmic and self-contained sound that is a lot of fun. After extensive listening with the Phono Signature, I was curious about the effect of the PSX-R2 power supply. It was as expected and already verified several times elsewhere: the electricity makes the music! In terms of sound, the PSX raises the Phono Signature above the phono preamplifiers I’ve known so far and is a high-flyer in its class.”

It’s a real surprise what the Cyrus Phono Signature delivers in detail, but with a gentle yet unyielding attitude and a spatial representation that is not overly large. Super comfortable, super flexible, super features. An impressive phono amplifier for serious pickup fanatics who still like to use a remote control. Criticism of the sound? No, not even from the bean counter.” -STEREOPLAY  5/2016
