Well im quite happy with the cyrus, sounds pretty similar to the musical fidelity xray i had, which it will do, it has the same pcm1716 24/96 dac in it as the mf did. different mech though, the mf had a sony kss mech in it wheras the cyrus has a philips cdm 12.1 mech in it.
I think the mf x24k dac i had and used with the original delta 170.3 transport years ago also had the pcm 1716 dac chip in it.
I remember the xray being a little more forward, this cyrus is quite smooth
Happy with that
