Compared to the Naim Nait 5 with FlatCap, the Cyrus power amplifier gave a real demonstration of energy, precision, and strength, but without becoming loud or harsh. Tracks from ‘The Last Samurai’ were reproduced with astonishing freedom and clarity. The small amplifier handled KEF monitors perfectly, extracting an impressive (in relation to its size) power and extension from them. The rendering of the soundstage, its width, and depth were commendable. Nothing blended together, instruments did not overlap. The clarity was truly surprising.
