Hi I am presently using Cyrus CD 6s . My amplifier is Bryston 3BSST and BP 25 . I was offered a chance to trade my Cyrus CD 6 s with the marantz SA11S1 . Is this a good Move , Will the marantz sound better then the Cyrus in my current setup. My speakers are Dynaudio Audience 72. I listen to all kind of slow music ( country , jazz , slow rock etc)
Bagadee, it's difficult for anyone to offer help here because no one else has your ears. How do we know what you like your music to sound like. You need to audtion the Marantz (at your home with your equipment if possible). You may also wish to audition the new Bryston CDP (I forget the model number) but I have read many very good reviews.
Thanks M.R But I do not have any dealer near my City who is having the Marantz product , This SA 11 is offered from one of the dealers who is from far of place and my cousin has seen the CDP and its working fine . Only thing is that i want to know if marantz is better then the Cyrus. Any inputs?????
I myself wouldn't do it unless I could hear it in my system first, or had a pre-arranged money back guarantee on paper that if I did not like it within a set amount of time I could return it for a refund or store credit.
Hi MR and Frank , Thank you for the input and yes the marantz was not my cup of tea either, though the sound was good when compared to the Arcam which the dealer was trying to push, the cyrus was way better . BTW i could not find any difference between the Cyrus CD6 and CD 6se , Are my ears not tuned to hear the difference or is it the setup wrong ? the system was a Cyrus 8vs2 , Cyrus CD6 and CD6se and the speakers they used were Epos , Dali ikon 5 and Wharfedale Diamonds and quad 21
