Cyrus CDt-XR, flagship CD Transport

The brand new Cyrus transport CDt-XR builds on a lineage of exceptional reference CD players.

Cyrus is a small brand in the HiFi world hailing from just outside Cambridge, UK where many heavy hitting HiFi players originate. Think Mission, Quad, Arcam and Cambridge Audio. Of course it's not really much of a surprise that such awesome HiFi comes from the University town where engineering excellence and ingenuity are in good supply!

The master clocks of the old Cyrus SE models that are now incorporated into the XR models are what provide Cyrus CD players with their true magic. Timing and rythym is sorted - period.

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 CDt-XR does exactly this, streaming the data from the disc to the audio processing circuitry with precision and accuracy.

Pure Transport

With no built-in DAC, nor the requirement to drive it, the CDt-XR works purely as a digital transport. The absence of any DAC or analogue circuitry allows design of the CDt-XR to be focussed purely on data retrieval, state-of-the-art reclocking and a high performance digital output.


The CDt-XR includes both optical and SPDIF coaxial digital outputs fed from a dedicated digital audio output driver.

Power supply design

As with any CD player, the performance of digital CD transports benefits greatly from high quality, stable power supplies. In the case of the CDt-XR, the digital control circuits run from a dedicated, high-efficiency power supply. A high capacity linear supply feeds separately to the SE circuit, the digital master clock, the digital audio output driver, the PLL master clock and the drive motors through independent regulation channels.

PSU-XR port

The CDt-XR includes a port for the all-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 CDt-XR the PSU-XR is employed to reduce dynamic loads on the internal power supplies and enable these to run under more stable conditions.

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, and system configuration options. Menu settings are quick and simple to select.
