We recently had a customer come to see us about an existing Cyrus setup that they had been enjoying for a number of years. The existing Cyrus system featured two Cyrus X Power amplifiers in a Mono configuration fed from a Cyrus Pre X, pre amplifier. Also present were a Cyrus CD player and Tuner, along with two PSX power supply upgrades.

This guide seeks to help simplify the process of pairing your VT-E BT turntable and Ruark MR1 Mk2 speakers together for wireless playback. The ProJect VT-E BT Turntable and Ruark Audio MR1 Mk 2 is available from our website as a complete set order package.

As Christmas is now on the horizon, I thought it might be fun to design an electronic dice, to give as presents to your family, or just use whilst playing traditional family games during the holidays.
This dice project has seven LED’s which can display the possible outcomes of rolling the dice…in other words, 1, 2, 3, 4 , 5 or 6. A single button instigates the ‘rolling’ of the dice, as the outer six LED’s rotate to indicate motion. When the button is released, the dice value is displayed on the LEDS’s, flashing at a frequency of 2.5Hz.
The world of hifi can be a daunting and confusing place at first, especially when looking at different models of speakers and amps and CD players and streamers and the mighty list of technical terms they come with. Hopefully we can help bust some of that jargon here. Are we missing a word or term you’d like to know the meaning of? Leave us a comment below.
