Cyrus Audio has this week announced the two new Streamers, both based on the BluOS streaming platform. They are the Cyrus Audio Stream-XR and Classic-STREAM, both of which are fully featured streaming DACs capable of wirelessly playing lossless music up to 24-bit/192kHz. They are available for shipping this week. It looks like the Stream-XR is priced at £2,495 at Audio Affair and the Classic-STREAM is £1,995. The XR has Cyrus’ 2nd Generation QXR DAC platform and it can be upgraded with the Cyrus PSU-XR power supply which is £2,395 in the UK. The Classic-STREAM has the 1st Generation QXR DAC platform and it too can have the power supply upgraded with the PSX-R2 power supply.
The choice of the BluOS platform is a wise one by Cyrus. The BluOS operating system can be controlled with ease in iOS, Android, Kindle, Mac or PC computers. It supports just about everything including Tidal, Qobuz, Deezer, Spotify and others. It is Roon Ready (pending) and has Airplay2 and MQA decoding.
Chris Hutcheson, Head of Marketing says:
This strategic partnership with BluOS is very important for Cyrus. It allows us to concentrate on what we do best, which is engineering amazing-sounding electronics, with the addition of the strongest streaming platform currently in the market.
