The Cyrus CD Xt SE+ is the transport or disc spinning half of the ultimate Cyrus CD player system. At the highest levels of CD player development Cyrus have learnt that it is beneficial to separate certain sections of the CD mechanics from the low level decoding sections. The most successful way Cyrus has found to do this is to manufacture the player in two separate and isolated die-cast chassis. The benefits of this approach bring higher resolution, quieter background and improved imagery

With the introduction of the acclaimed DAC X and DAC XP D/A converters, Cyrus moved into a new league for replay of digital sources by offering 192 kHz up-sampling, true 192 kHz DACs and full differential modes of operation. The Cyrus CD Xt SE+ CD transport is engineered to complement the DAC XP+ and other established 'X' series components as a high-end 'digital optimised' CD source. Clock stability is a key element in the signal processing chain in a player of this standard. The digital engineering of the Cyrus CD Xt SE+ CD transport therefore includes a special re-clocking circuit with close tolerance crystal VCO located at the threshold of the signal drive circuit to maximise jitter rejection.

Packed into the stylish, compact chassis of the Cyrus CD Xt SE+ CD transport is a high quality toroidal power transformer. The transformer has two entirely separate secondary windings with one dedicated to feeding the sensitive re-clocking circuits and the other supplying a completely separate feed to the current hungry motors. In true Cyrus style the PSX-R power supply may also be connected to further refine the power supply system and take over power supply to the motors further improving resolution. Cyrus products have always delivered sonic excellence hand-in-hand with state-of-the-art technical performance. The Cyrus CD Xt SE+ CD transport is no exception and Cyrus are justifiably proud of the measured performance of the 'X' series transport and DAC combination. A Cyrus CD Xt SE+ CD transport partnered with a DAC X+ or DAC XP+ will deliver ruler-flat linearity performance, vanishingly low background noise and superb jitter rejection, out-performing most two box players in their class.

A natural upgrade path for the Cyrus CD Xt SE+ CD transport owner is the acquisition of an optional PSX-R external DC Power supply. This unique and intelligent component allows the Cyrus CD Xt SE+ CD transport to tap into a massive reserve of highly regulated DC energy source. Providing a completely separate power feed for the high current demands of the mechanism motors, the PSX-R effectively removes the dynamically changing load of the motors from the internal power transformer.

The unique MC-Bus connectivity of the Cyrus CD Xt SE+ CD transport is in keeping with the total system approach of the Cyrus range of products. This facility enhances ergonomic operation of the unit in a system context. Total automation of the test, alignment and calibration of the CD Xt SE+ is facilitated via the MC-Bus during its manufacturing process, eliminating potential human error.

The quality lightweight magnesium die-cast enclosure of the Cyrus CD Xt SE+ CD transport has a myriad of advantages both electrically and mechanically. The non-resonant nature of the alloy minimises microphonic effects, while its non-ferrous composition provides an effective shield from external electro-magnetic disturbances. This also eliminates coupling of the power transformer stray magnetic fields to the sensitive audio circuitry.

Partnered with a DAC XP+ and a pair of PSX-R power supplies, this four box combination offers the discerning audio enthusiast one of the most rewarding CD systems in the world
