Had a Cyrus 8Vs2 for a while now and it's been a great servant over the years. Had it partnered with various kit and always been happy with it. Anyway i am looking to replace it but only looking to spend around £600 ideally. I have been briefly looking at the
1. Rega Brio,
2. Rega Elex-R
3. Audiolab M-One.
Always liked Rega and had some great speakers previously (R3's) and the reviews of the Brio all seem excellent. It looks great and will fit in well with the space i have, however it has no digital inputs which isn't the end of the world but i listen to a lot of Sonos via a Connect, although the built in DAC sounds pretty good to me.
The Elex-R seems like a good option too and is in a smiliar price bracket to my Cyrus (when it was new).
However the Audiolab has decent reviews and has a DAC an digital input options.
Overall sound quality is the most important thing to me, of the Audiolab is on a par then i will be tempted as it has more flexibiltiy.
The rest of my system is
PSB Imagine Mini speakers
Sonos Connect (used to stream lossless)
Cyrus CD8X (hardly used now)
Really interested to hear people's opinions, will the Brio be on a par or better than my Cyrus or will it offer a totally different sound? what will the other options offer?
