Cyrus and Monitor Audio Impress
The Cyrus Lyric 09, which outputs 170Wpc into 8 ohms, contains a 32-bit DAC, CD transport, internet radio, and more. It can also stream via a NAS drive. The amp reportedly senses the load of the speakers it feeds, and re-EQs itself to provide a flat frequency response at all levels. Among its other features: 13 sources, 3 USB inputs, 4 digital inputs, one analog input, and Bluetooth. The rep claimed that if all its components were instead spread over multiple boxes, the price would double from $6500 to $13,000. Sounds like a potential UK rival to all-in-ones from the French Devialet company.
