The Cyrus Audio Phono Reference surprised me. I expected it to be good. I just didn’t expect it to be this good! Coupled with the PSX-R2 it’s a true world-beater; dynamically free, detailed, and most of all so damn enjoyable to sit in front of, it’s hard not to play record after record through the system, whatever that system. Yes, there will be those who don’t see the point of any phono stage that only uses a RIAA curve, and there will be many who simply discount the Cyrus Phono Reference for being too small, or even too cheap. More fool them. This is something really special, and comes very highly recommended!
