Hear how good your music should sound, with Lyric 09’s expert audio technology.
Whatever you’re listening to, you can now listen to it in high quality with no hassle. Lyric 09 can be easily connected to up to 14 sources, and uses the very latest technology to transform the sound of any input.
Browse and select your music with Lyric’s dedicated learning remote or our Cadence app which was designed in house to provide you with stable and comprehensive control of your Lyric 09.
Lyric 09 is the top model of our Lyric Series range, using the latest cutting edge audio technology, as well as a large power supply to ensure you hear everything your music has to offer. Every single component we use is chosen through a process of extensive listening tests to make sure that they provide the very best sound quality possible.
As detailed below, the Lyric 09 uses many of our best music playing technologies.
Lyric 09 uses our award winning Servo Evolution (SE₂) disc reading system, which has won multiple awards for its ability to extract more information from a disc than any other system. Lyric 09’s version of SE₂ was customised for the system, to provide more detail and accuracy than ever before.
Our advanced music streaming technology can be paired with any Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) or Digital Living Network Alliance (DNLA) device, to allow you to browse and play your entire digital music collection wirelessly.
FM, DAB+ and Internet Radio
Listen to your favourite radio stations using FM or DAB+. You can also access thousands of radio stations and podcasts from around the world through our interrnet radio service.
Front and rear USB connections allow you to play music from your mobile phone or USB stick. Connect an apple product in this way, and Lyric 09 will charge it while it is connected.
Lyric 09 also has a USB B input which provides a strong connection between your laptop and the unit.
SPDIF Optical and SPDIF Coaxial inputs allow you to connect a range of other inputs to your Lyric product, for example try connecting your TV or AV system to hear how their sound can be transformed.
The ability to easily connect any Bluetooth® enabled device means you really can play music from any source through your Lyric 09. For example, if you or a visitor wants to play something on their phone, it takes a matter of seconds to divert the audio to your Lyric 09 for vastly better sound quality.
Expert Digital to Analogue Conversion
Lyric 09 is able to play the highest resolution 24 bit files, which are expertly converted into the music your ears love to hear. The 32 bit digital to analogue converter in Lyric 09 upsamples all digital files to 192 kHz resolution, so even if you have a lower resolution file you will be able to hear some improvement to that music through your Lyric 09.
Our advanced power amplifier was redesigned for Lyric Series for advanced efficiency, providing more power to the amplification process. This means that Lyric 09 is able to provide an impressive 230 watts per channel (into 6 Ohms).
Speaker Impedance Detection
Whenever speakers are connected to Lyric 09, its Speaker Impedance Detection system measures the impedance of the speakers and adjusts the frequency of its output accordingly, making sure you always get the most out of the speakers you use.
As well as providing a stereo pair of speaker outputs, Lyric 09 has an optional subwoofer output.
