Tuner Issue 6

An often overlooked but rewarding source of readily available program material is radio.  Cyrus, being based in a country where radio broadcast quality is of the highest order, designed a tuner to enhance the pleasure attainable from live concerts, plays and other programmes available over the airwaves.  The Cyrus tuner is a microprocessor-controlled, digitally-synthesised design employing a high quality phase-locked-loop circuit which ensured tuning precision and low distortion.

Engineered to the same high standards as its stablemates, the Cyrus One and Two the Cyrus tuner featured separate regulated power supplies for the digital, RF and audio sections and a powerful toroidal transformer to enhance the sonic performance of the audio output section.
