Cyrus Lyric 09

CYRUS Lyric 09 - Stereoplay (Germany) review
  • Lyric 09 is Stereoplay Group Test "Highlight" Winner
  • Price/ Performance: "Outstanding"
  • Cyrus Lyric 09 is a majestic device that's full of power.
  • The Lyric 09 can drive great big floor-standing speakers. We moved up from the small studio monitors to the room filling Bowers & Wilkins 802 Diamond speakers. This does look unusual; we would normally put impressive mono blocks with the 72 kilo speakers.
  • However, in this case, it is a single component which doesn’t merely bravely hold its own, rather threatens to make a mockery of separate mono amps.....the Lyric 09 remained strong as iron demonstrating incredible strength, the B&W have seldom sounded so natural.
  • As far as sound, design and user functionality goes, the Lyric 09 is one of the heroes of this test and our surprise winner.
  • Often the phrase “All-in-one“, can mean everything is levelled into a middle class middle of the road performance. The Lyric 09 is different: great high end, perfect sound staging, high resolution, dynamic and very stable power amplification.

CYRUS Lyric 09 - Stereolife (Poland) review
  • The tonal balance is actually perfect. The same can be said of timbre - is neither cool nor insulated. Lyric 09 just playing, acting like a high-end amplifier. In the first minutes rather not throw listeners to his knees, but then begin to bestow it more and more respect.
  • The sound was always tight and ready even for the arrival of total slaughter. Respect. Which in addition to the overall neutrality and speed can appeal to the Cyrus? Certainly dynamics and stereophony.
  • Cyrus Lyric 09 is a complete audio system in one box to which you can connect up to 14 sources and loudspeakers... Cyrus can play files in 24-bit. Built-in 32-bit data performs upsampling to 192kHz. The interior of such a versatile device should look like a mountain of cars in the junkyard, but - here there is even German order.
  • VERDICT: Cyrus Lyric 09 is extremely modern device with a mature audiophile sound... The price may seem high, but think how much you would spend buying a separate amplifier, converter, player, streamer and tuner, and to separate table for all the junk and again on the remote control to them. I was convinced by the device.

Cyrus Lyric 09 - Hi-Fi + review

Cyrus Lyric 09

Cyrus Lyric 09 - Hi-Fi + review
  • Hooked up to PMC fact.8 loudspeakers with Townshend Isolda cable, the sound is pacey and very open. It is also uncannily clean.
  • The Cyrus Lyric 09 makes many of its rivals sound a little grubby or earthy in comparison, but without the ‘shiny’ sound that you might expect from an amp designer over-compensating. It has excellent depth when the recording allows, and always works well with regard to tempo.
  • Lyric is a tour de force for Cyrus. The sound quality combined with the feature count and sheer ease of use puts it in the premier league. The amplifier is a major upgrade on virtually all multi-source, single box solutions and makes Lyric good enough for some very revealing loudspeakers. This is a product for today!
 
Cyrus Lyric 09 - AVSA review

Cyrus Lyric 09

Cyrus Lyric 09 - AVSA review
  • AVSA South Africa’s premier audio visual magazine, reviews the Lyric’s ability to deliver real music with verve and authority:
  • Deon Schoeman takes us on a musical journey sharing how the Lyric makes The London Symphony Orchestra sound rich in emotion and expansive in scale, and how the luscious swing of Robbie Williams’ Swing Both Ways, is proof of our talent for scale and occasion!
  • Schoeman seems lost in the moment as the Lyric takes him to the realms of believable sound, with brooding presence, a smooth glass finish and soft touch controls, Schoeman compliments the Lyric on its sexiness, muscle and robustness.

CYRUS Lyric 05 - AUDIO review
  • Sound Rating: 100 points, Price / performance: "very good"
  • "Recommendation: a dynamic sound"
  • "Versatile all-in-one-system with powerful sound”
  • "Despite the futuristic concept of the L-05 woke the round and yet sprightly playing character with rich, varied middle reminding of classic British sound virtues. The heights are exclusive and reserved, but not imposed. The bass met exactly the right level of juicy punch and volume - at a quite high level of control."

  • "A complete system of the highest class in the smallest CD players space, DAB + / FM, Internet Radio, 32-bit DAC, streaming client and the enormously potent hybrid amp, deliver incredibly high sound quality. Top not just as a second system. Fascinating."
