Cyrus Audio Announces New Classic Series

The Cyrus Audio Classic AMP and Classic PRE are the first products in their new and improved Classic Series product category.

Cyrus Audio Classic Pre and Amp Front Angle

Cyrus Audio is a high-end audio brand based in Cambridgeshire, England, and has been at the forefront of the audio scene for nearly 40 years. 

Its first product, the Cyrus One (aka Cyrus 1) amplifier launched in 1984 to much acclaim. Since then Cyrus Audio has developed a reputation for offering quality audio products which include integrated amps, CD players, power amps, and power supplies, all of which are manufactured in England.

The new Cyrus Audio Classic Series offers popular product choices for many hi-fi fans, bringing the unique look and sound of Cyrus to a global audience.

Cyrus Audio has announced the launch of two new models to kickstart the new line of products in the new and improved Classic series.

The first two entries in the new Classic line are The Classic AMP, an integrated amplifier, and The Classic PRE, which is a preamplifier.

Both new products retain the Cyrus audio look, but the circuit design has been re-designed and the majority of the internal components have been upgraded by the Cyrus R&D team, resulting in sound improvements.
