The new Cyrus One is an update to the classic amplifier which helped launched the company back in 1984. Set to make its debut at High End, the new model features aptX Bluetooth streaming, a phono stage for connecting to a turntable and a headphone amplifier.
What's more, it looks like it will be relatively affordable, promising to showcase the company "at its most affordable price ever".
Information on the High End website reveals a few details about the feature-packed amp, while the Cyrus Audio Twitter account has shared a teaser image, presumably of the new model, with the tagline, "Harder, faster, better, stronger".

The Cyrus One will deliver 2 x 100-watts of power and features Class D amplification. There's an AB headphone amplifier, a MM phono stage, four line level inputs and a set of pre-outs.
The new One aims to celebrate more than 33 years of Cyrus products, taking design cues from the original but bringing it bang up to date when it comes to the specifiactions.
And, interestingly, it looks like it will be the most affordable Cyrus amplifier yet, presumably coming in under the £699 Cyrus 6a.

The original Cyrus One/1 was released in 1984, a year after the formation of Cyrus Audio, and, alongside the Cyrus Two, was the first product the company released.
The classic amp will be instantly recognisable to anyone who has set eyes on any Cyrus electronics over the years, so we'd expect the new model to stick to a similar design. Although following the launch of the excellent, if exotically-designed, Cyrus Lyric, we're prepared to be surprised...
