Cyrus Audio Home Demonstrations Available

Social distancing doesn't mean that you can't still audition the ONE series from Cyrus Audio.

Cyrus Audio has announced the launch of a home trial programme for its ONE Series of products - Cyrus ONE, ONE HD and ONE Cast amplifiers, and the ONE linear speaker system. The scheme enables you to stay entertained while helping the health service by staying indoors. 

As a direct response to the impact of the coronavirus, Cyrus is taking the step to encourage home trial, allowing customers to try Cyrus products in the comfort of their own home.

You can contact any of Cyrus' participating UK dealers and arrange to borrow one of the amplifier products, either with or without speakers, for a free 14 day trial period. Of course, a small security deposit is required.

Cyrus Audio's MD, Simon Freethy, told StereoNET:

The relaxation a good music system can provide has never been so important. With large numbers of people being asked to work from home and/or self-isolating, we want to ensure they have the opportunity for the escapism of music, without the stress of having to directly visit a hi-fi retailer.

Simon adds: 

... we wanted to develop a programme which allowed our retailers to continue to provide all the added value services they offer above online stores, such as demonstration facilities as well as one to one advice, without the customer physically having to visit the store. 

Retailers have embraced the move with positive feedback across the board.

The Cyrus ONE series

All Cyrus ONE series products have as their foundation a 100w per channel stereo amplifier using Cyrus' in-house designed 'Hybrid Class-D' technology. 

Cyrus ONE

Cyrus ONE is a compact, integrated amplifier sporting multiple analogue inputs, as well as an integrated phono-stage. There's also an AV mode enabling the Cyrus ONE to be partnered with an AV amplifier. Additionally, a dedicated headphone amplifier is also built-in.

Cyrus ONE HD

The ONE HD builds upon this with full digital compatibility, adding a host of digital inputs. Each of these digital inputs uses a High-Resolution 32-bit ESS DAC and the company's proprietary filtering systems. The Bluetooth input on the Cyrus ONE HD has been upgraded to the latest Qualcomm aptX HD specification too.

Cyrus ONE Cast

The ONE Cast goes even further, integrating seamlessly into a voice-controlled wireless multi-room audio system. Just as with other smart speakers, you can give ONE Cast a name and location, allowing multiple ONE Cast devices to be used in a home, or integrated into multi-room systems. 

As well as built-in Google Cast, Apple Airplay, and Works with Alexa, ONE Cast has a multitude of audiophile wired connection options including an HDMI ARC input. 

Cyrus ONE Linear

Finally, there is the ONE linear, a compact bookshelf speaker using a KEVLAR bass driver and soft-dome tweeter.
