Cyrus CDi-XR

At 9 years old, my first trip overseas was spent in the UK visiting family and friends.

Dad (mis)spent most of his youth in Cambridge and we followed him around to his old haunts.

But because he owned and ran Carlton Audio Visual a 'family trip' was always sprinkled with a bit of Hi-Fi. Somehow the family and friends we visited were conveniently located next to HiFi factories...and nestled just next to Cambridge is Huntington where the Cyrus factory still develops and produces its units.

Needless to say after such an early introduction to the brand, our whole family has owned Cyrus gear. I think my brother currently has 6 cyrus mono blocks set up with his Dynaudio speakers - a great combination. I own a smaller stack with CD8SE, Phono Signature and PSX-R power supply.

There is no doubt that this boutique English brand commands loyalty from its customers. It's a sound that is effortless and timelessly musical. Their CD players are quieter, letting you hear more detail and sound stage. And they get timing right. Attack on notes is precise & clean bringing you closer to that feeling of 'being there', with the musicians in your living.

And now Cyrus has launched their new XR series. New casework and buttons reveal a new aethestic direction for cyrus. But improvements to power supply and DAC have elevated this unit beyond their older models.

The CDi-XR is in stock now and ready to demo.

Product Description


Servo Evolution

The Cyrus philosophy for reading CD has always been the same - read it once and read it accurately. The latest iteration of Cyrus SE technology in the CDi-XR does exactly this, streaming the data from the disc to the audio processing circuitry with precision and accuracy.

DAC Technology

The CDi-XR DAC design includes the highest specified Sabre DAC. This, partnered with a high-speed analogue stage with excellent dynamic range delivers exceptional noise and THD performance from the DAC stage. Seven digital filter alignment options are user adjustable via the menu to suit the taste of the listener.

Power supply design

Within a CD player is a complex mix of signals including fast digital audio, sensitive analogue audio, high current servo and system control. To minimise interaction between these circuit stages the power supply design of the CDi-XR is completely segmented. The digital control circuits run from a dedicated, high-efficiency supply, with other parts of the player powered from an over-specified linear power supply with toroidal transformer. Nine individual stage regulators smooth and distribute power within the player according to demand.

PSU-XR port

The CDi-XR includes a port for the new PSU-XR power supply upgrade. Thirty years ago Cyrus broke new ground with the introduction of the PSX-R, the first ever regulated power supply upgrade that automatically adapted to match perfectly the power requirements of any connected product. The PSU-XR raises the bar by sourcing no less than five independent regulated supplies in a single box. For the CDi-XR four of the PSU-XR power supplies are employed. One pair to provide ultra-smooth power for the analogue audio circuitry, one for the current-hungry demands of the motors and one just to provide an ultra-stable supply for the PLL digital master clock circuit, reducing any power supply related jitter to a minimum.

Configurable options menu

A new menu system makes the CDi-XR customisable yet easy to set up. The tree-style navigation structure has display, time-out, digital filter and system configuration options. Menu settings are quick and simple to select.
