    Indeed, the 507 was very expensive back in its day.

    (I think) my CD7Q sold around 1,100-1,200 back in 2002. Pricey! The ''Q'' came as an upgrade option, if you had the CD7.

    Always found Cyrus to have good rhythm and timing.

    I think I paid about 1250 for the 507, so not much difference.

    Sound wise it's damn clean and very lucid. Bass is tight!

    Do you still have these? Would be good match with cdq7, I think.

    No Vesa, I don't. Sold them both, a couple months ago. I do slightly regret selling them tbh. Might try a cyrus amp again someday!

    You really do like to swap your gear a lot, Shane 😀. BTW, do you still have that Sony ES cd player?
