Radical thinking from hi-fi specialists Cyrus Audio reinvents the phono stage to significantly improve vinyl performance.

So a phono stage is a ‘fit and forget’ box is it? Not according to the vinyl playing engineers at British hi-fi specialist Cyrus, who for their latest phono stage launch have come at the concept from a radically different perspective: “Our prime engineering aim is to satisfy the most demanding hi-fi fan, so clearly sound quality was our dominant goal. However, with the addition of remote control memory functions, we have enabled audiophiles not only to match their cartridge perfectly but also to interact with and correct frustrating tonal limitations in real time. Vinyl fans know all records sound different, some being better mastered/pressed than others.”

Technically the Phono Signature has been designed to exceed the expectations of serious vinyl audiophiles, particularly in areas such as; dynamic performance, accurate cartridge matching and flexibility of use. By adding IR remote control of cartridge matching we can for the first time ever, provide invaluable tonal control to rebalance imperfect discs.
Designed to appeal to the most advanced vinyl enthusiasts who enjoy multiple cartridges, turntables or arms, each of the four inputs can be accurately matched to the exact specification of the cartridge, and now, the acoustic preference of the user. Adjustment is provided for MC cartridges in gain, resistance and capacitance facilitating a huge 160 possible combinations. In addition a switchable warp filter is provided to maximise amplifier performance.

This state-of-the-art phono amplifier allows real time adjustment of capacitance, resistance, gain and more, thereby providing invaluable tonal adjustment from the listening position. The inclusion of warp filter and Cyrus system volume adjustment completes a suite of remote control functionality that provides unequalled user involvement with vinyl
