I guess you'll all have sold your Cyruses by now, but if not ...
Mrs Butcher I guess will need MFA plugs.
Those of you lumbered with 3mm speaker sockets, best solution might be to replace them with the 4mm equivalents, available from Farnell for under £2 each.
These are Deltron parts, just like the originals. Don't get the cheaper suffix -01 variants, they're tin-plated.
The Cyrus comes apart pretty easily and changing the sockets is a straightforward affair.
Good advice but probably wasted on here. Most people on here baulk at even taking the lid off and spraying the switches and pots with switch-cleaner. Hey the other day we even had a guy say that he was thinking of connecting two sets of speakers to his amp, one to the A outputs and one to the B outputs, but he was scared and did anyone have experience of doing something so radical. That's the level of daring adventure you're at round here. (With my cap duly doffed to the precious few of us left on here who don't mind popping lids and firing-up the soldering-iron).

How very dare you.

No offence intended to anyone but this forum isn't exactly known for people rolling-up their sleeves, cracking-out the soldering-iron and taking-on a bit of HiFi DIY. For example I once suggested to someone that they solder-up their own custom jack-to-phono cable and it was like "you want me to do WHAT?? Are you CRAZY??"
So I was just kind of sayin'...
