Aren't Cyrus products brittle to start with? I have an older Cyrus II and I have to watch what I use with it. Stephen Mejias in Stereophile gave the cable a glowing recommendation. Then again he used it with NAD components.
Possibly redundant disclaimer: I'm not an expert.
I was looking for a sensibly priced RCA<>3.5mm cable to connect an Audioengine D1 DAC to a pair of Audioengine A5 speakers (replacing a Creative X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro soundcard). This cable was at the perfect price point and the resulting sound is a vast improvement on the PC card based setup. I'm very pleased with the clarity and airyness of the resulting sound for a home office environment.

A fun set of speakers if you’re after outright entertainment over analysis
