A grand (ish) amp required. You all know I'd rather spend on records than on gear . My old Cyrus is getting tired. Today the front panel came loose so it's time to replace it. I want something 70wpc minimum and I want some sort of digital input for the telly etc. For the first time since the 70's I'm willing to try a Jap amp id there's any in contention. I need some pizzazz in the sound. I hate laid back audio . Plenty of dynamics and transients in it. I don't need 600 inputs or anything mind boggling. Two phono amps and a telly will go through it. Ready .......steady.....
GO ! 🙂👍 . Bear in mind it'll probably be bought blind. No audition in the current climate.
You needn't spend anywhere near a grand imo, especially used. You like the Cyrus sound? That's usually quite lean, or at least bass light. Very enjoyable, though, I've had Cyrus gear and been very impressed.
If so, why not another Cyrus? Anything else is a bit of a gamble if you can't get a demo.
Just read the ad again, you may not even need a dac since this has a USB input. If this input is not suitable many cheap dacs on ebay for £20, in fact we've got got a Fiio you can have for £12 inc. post, which we used for the tv and it's all you need.
