    Welcome to AOS, Steve.

    Nice to see, you have Cyrus CD Player showing on the list. When my CD7Q dies, I might consider the CD8SE. I'm guessing that Cyrus still services the 8SE?

    Hello Steve. Welcome to AOS from me too.

    If you want to discuss phono stages, I'd suggest starting a thread in the Analogue Arts section and outlining your ideas. The members are a helpful bunch and will be happy to give opinions.


    Enjoy the forum,
    Geoff.
