Bottom Line:   
Cyrus acA7 Pre-amp

I've teamed up the acA7 with two of the Cyrus apA7 mono-blocks, and the result is fantastic.

It's an open, clear sound, full of dynamics, full of detail.

It's pacey when it should be, and adapts well to all types of music, from classical to jazz to rock and dance.

Take care with the choice of source, as anything that's too sharp will be accurately relayed to your speakers, and that could be a painful experience.

To improve things even further, add a PSX-R power supply, and listen to the bass fill out, and the soundstage open out even further. It's worth every penny to upgrade, and installation is just one connection.

Cyrus should be congratulated for this modularity, it makes the highest quality of hi-fi approachable and achievable, in a quality British made product.

Bottom Line:   
I recently bought this secondhand for £200 UKP as the previous owner had upgraded to the Ca7 pre. This Pre doesn't have the headphone socket and apparently the low volume quibble I have with this has been eradicated as well. All I can say is that you don't listen to the amp,you listen to the tunes! It also has balanced inputs on 3 pin XLRs for a really high end cd player. My system is
Pioneer Precision CD player
Entech 205.2 DAC
Sony Minidisc MDS530
Arcam Diva P85
Arcam Alpha 8p x2

Mordaunt Short Performance 860 (triamped).
Nordost Cables.

Highly recommended.

Cyrus aCA7.5 Pre

The Cyrus aCA7.5 Pre is the latest preamp from Cyrus. (And an upgrade of aCA7.) This is a substantial improvement from the original Cyrus Pre.
The aCA7.5 is very transparent, with clear and crisp sound and very good extension in both ends of the spectrum. Can sound foreward in some setups.
Great fun and drive both in rock and classical music.
