"Superb, near-faultless performance - this is a remarkably talented and enjoyable CD transport for the money." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Award Winner 2015

Award-winning sound quality
Thoroughly engineered and generously specced, the Cyrus CD T Transport is almost unique in offering CD Transport only facilities from a mid-priced player. With a CD Transport you get to choose your own choice of DAC or, alternatively, plug the player straight into a digital ready amplifier, such as the Cyrus 6 DAC. Beginning with the power supply, the Cyrus CD T uses a high quality toroidal transformer with separate control and digital windings. One feeds the critical digital circuits with uninterrupted supply while the other services the current-hungry control aspects such as the transport motors.

Jitter can be a serious problem for digital devices with clock errors causing sonic distortion. Fortunately, when partnered with a matching Cyrus DAC, jitter is almost non-existent and the sound, therefore, more precise than a typical one-box player at the same price.

Using quality components from the power supply to output, Cyrus has engineered the CD T to be highly analytical. Furthermore, the special optical servo system significantly improves data performance for yet greater accuracy.

Unique Cyrus design and quality
For some decades now, Cyrus products have been instantly recognisable by their half-size case design. This not only makes them look more compact and attractive than other hi-fi separates but is practical, too; two units can be placed side by side without taking up any more width than a conventional hi-fi separate. Just as recognisable is the high quality, die-cast casing. A feature of Cyrus products since the late '80s, this very high quality casing not only looks great but has important sonic benefits, too. In mechanical terms, the dense casing provides a non-resonant nature, minimising microphonic effects. The non-ferrous composition also provides superior shielding against various electrical interference, such as RF disturbance.

Upgrade path
Like other Cyrus products, the CD T offers a clear upgrade path. First off, the unit can be returned to Cyrus for an upgrade to CDXT SE2 spec. Following this you can go further still by adding the PSX-R outboard power supply, making a truly high-end CD transport.

Cyrus system synergy
Cyrus takes system synergy seriously. Not only do all their products aesthetically match one another but there's also a unique rack that's specifically designed for them - the Hark. In addition to this, the CD T features MC-Bus connectivity, allowing the CD transport to integrate smoothly into a complete Cyrus system using just a single remote control.

For a more flexible approach to CD playback, the Cyrus CD T gives you genuine options as to how you want your CD player to sound.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality control I phoned the Bournemouth branch since stores were in lockdown and completed the purchase of the Cyrus CDT (Black) by phone. I was told that there was a 3 week waiting list for this model by the because it ships directly from Cyrus but it arrived with a week. Powering on I noticed that there was a CD already in the transport which I thought was suspicious. Contacted the dealer and was told it was a test disc. Then I noticed that it rocked corner to corner. Tried it on several surfaces to confirm. A closer look showed that the chassis was twisted. Returned the machine straightaway. I would never consider buying a Cyrus product again

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound but still settling in. I set up the CDt almost a month ago and have tried different Digital and Analogue cables to deliver the musicality that I seek. On a well recorded and produced CD it is fantastic - everything that I could wish for. Very unkind to poor CDs and system mismatches. System: Naim NAC62 NAP160, Moon 3003D DAC, Monitor Audio Studio 20 SE speakers. Would recommend with caution about mismatch on older system

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound from cd The Cyrus cdt gives great sound from cd's allowing more detail to be heard, with previously unheard notes in music that have been listens to many times before. The whole spectrum seems to of been enhanced. The bass is very extended and it is also well controlled, whilst the mid- range is also very good, however the treble can be a little hard but is also very good otherwise. (This could be down to individual recordings though)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Sound Quality This CD transport is built like a tank with its solid aluminium cast body. Gives a reassuring feel of quality. When connected to an appropriate hi fi system via a quality DAC the sound quality is superb, great dynamic sound with impressive imagery. I can hear things on my CD collection that I had not heard before. The CD player it replaced was British audiophile standard but the Cyrus CDT is vastly superior.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb bit of kit. Good out of the box, but fabulous after a few days running Took it with a pinch of salt when advised to run it continuously for three days. It sounded great when I plugged it via optic cable to my Naim Museo unit.. But three days later - wow! This was my first excursion into the world of top end high products, and I'm so glad I did. I can hear things on my CDs that I'd never ever heard before. It's like my whole library has been upgraded!
