High-end CD transport – Superb Cyrus CD T

Last Updated on 3 months by D.Fili

Award-winning sound quality
Fully designed and generously speculated, the Cyrus CD t Transport is almost unique in offering CD transport services only from a mid-priced player. With a free CD, you can choose your own DAC option or alternatively connect the player directly to a ready-made digital amplifier, such as the Cyrus 6 DAC. Starting from the power supply, Cyrus CD T uses a high-quality toroidal transformer with separate control and digital windings. One Powers critical digital circuits with uninterrupted power, while the other caters to current-hungry control aspects such as transport Motors.
Jitter can be a serious problem for digital devices with clock errors that cause sound distortion. Fortunately, when paired with a matching Cyrus DAC, the jitter is almost non-existent and the sound is therefore more accurate than a typical box player at the same price.
Using quality components from power to output, Cyrus designed the CD T to be highly analytical. In addition, the special optical servo system significantly improves data performance for even greater accuracy.

Cyrus unique design and quality
For a few decades, Cyrus products were immediately recognizable by their medium-sized box design. This not only makes them more compact and attractive than other separate hi-fi, but is also practical; two units can be side by side without occupying any wider than a conventional separate hi-fi. Equally recognizable is the high-quality die-casting housing. A feature of Cyrus products since the late 80s, this very high-quality case not only looks great, but also has significant sound advantages. In mechanical terms, the dense housing provides a non-resonant nature, minimizing the effects of the microphone. The non-ferrous composition also provides superior shielding against various electrical interference, such as RF disturbances.Cyrus CD TUpgrade path
Like other Cyrus products, CD T offers a clear upgrade path. First, the drive can be returned to Cyrus for an update to the cdxt SE2 specification. After that, you can go further by adding the PSX-R outboard power supply, creating a real high-end CD transport. Photo: Cyrus
Synergy of the Cyrus system
Cyrus takes the synergy of the system seriously. Not only do all their products match aesthetically, but there is also a unique shelf designed specifically for them-the Hark. In addition to this, the CD T is equipped with MC-Bus connectivity, allowing CD transport to integrate seamlessly into a complete Cyrus system using a single remote control.

All Cyrus components are manufactured in an advanced die-cast aluminum frame and this is finished by hand
case work is an integral part of the sound of the product. It’s not just about good looks; the composition of the frame is
specifically designed to create a mechanically shielded electronic environment free of vibration for the
sensitive audio circuits that hang inside the inverted frame, avoiding unwanted electrical currents and
secondary magnetic fields so that the sound you hear is the best it can be.

For a more flexible approach to CD playback, Cyrus CD T offers original options on how you want the CD player to sound.
