Phono Signature has been designed to allow up to four turntables to be permanently connected because many vinyl enthusiasts enjoy multiple turntables, arms or cartridges for different records. Each of the four inputs can be accurately matched to the exact specification of the cartridge and the acoustic preference of the user. Adjustment is provided for MC cartridges in; gain, resistance and capacitance. In addition a switchable warp filter is provided to maximise amplifier performance.
"Sound is felt as much as heard without any trace of bloat or bloom""It is a supremely quiet phono stage and is completely silent at idle""Spend a little more time with the Cyrus and it becomes clear that this a wonderfully natural and evolving phono stage."
HI-FI CHOICE 2016
Four turntables may be permanently connected allowing the listener to easily switch between turntables or cartridges as desired. Each input may be adjusted between; MM or MC, gain, resistance and capacitance. Settings are conveniently saved to memory for future reference.
Remote control allows of all the main adjustment options from the convenience of the listener’s chair.
Additional performance will be gained by connecting the optional external PSX-R2 power supply. This provides highly regulated DC power for the signal amplification.
Stereo output level meters working in real time allow clear and accurate gain adjustment to optimise the headroom available from your system for each MC cartridge.
The passive RIAA filtering uses very high performance metallized polyester capacitors for ultimate accuracy and performance.
Already owning a Cyrus amp the Signature seemed a logical step. So far very immpressed it fits in well with my turntable--Rega P10-- the fact that you can program to suit your cartridge on a well lit lcd is a nice touch. As with other Cyrus products its solid and well made. The only thing l could fault it for was there was no manual supplied, it did come with a computer disc which is great if your computer has a disc drive, mine does not. Putting aside that minor grumble this is a fine piece of kit.

I have been using Cyrus Phono Signature with Ortofon Cadenza Blue MC using 60dB gain, 47kΩ input impedance and 220pF capacitance (which is minimum possible) and it sounds wonderful. I compared Cyrus Phono Signature with Ayre Acoustics P-5xe and Simaudio Neo 310LP but Cyrus Phono Signature is much better than both of them. It is the most silent (background hiss noise) of all three and sounds better too.
