    Plenty of inputs, but no USB - and is the sound starting to show its age, too?

    A traditional-sounding pre/power amp combi from Cyrus, that works hard to establish itself against the competition

    For over twenty years now, we’ve been reviewing CD players ‘made by’ specialist manufacturers – a proportion of which are manufactured by a very small number of companies (originally Philips or Sony, these days just as likely to be an unpronounceable Chinese outfit), who produce CD transport mechanisms as complete assemblies. Take one of these, add a D-A converter, an output stage, a display and a power supply and you’ve ‘made’ a CD player... of sorts.

    This is another interesting take on the old pre/power concept, since apart from the obvious fact that the power amps are physically discrete monoblocks, the preamp is also a DAC. Where Bryston’s pre/DAC is very much a preamp with a DAC board added, this one is historically a DAC (the DAC-X exists happily in its own right) with a preamp added, though the integration is such that the term ‘digital preamp’ would probably describe it better.

    The CD-8X is built into the usual Cyrus die-cast case, it is quite a shoe-horn job with two circuit boards carefully mounted above and below the rear extension of the CD transport and two toroidal transformers squeezed in too.

    Cyrus's CD players bear more than a little external resemblance to each other, but this is the company's top model among one-box players, mostly a CD8 but with the 'x' suffix, signifying that certain aspects owe much to the two-box CD Xt/DAC X combination

    Cyrus has put some high-tech products into its distinctive 'singing shoebox' case over the years, but never before has it offered a DABtuner.In this case, the outstanding feature is the inclusion of an SD memory card

    The FM-X tuner has an ace up its small alloy sleeve... it's upgradable!
