UK audio specialist Cyrus Audio has partnered with Tidal to offer buyers of its Cyrus One amplifier a three-month subscription to Tidal’s HiFi streaming tier, plus a Chromecast streaming dongle, for £700.

The Cyrus One features a third generation hybrid Class D amplifier design, rated at 2 x 100W of power (into 6 Ω), an aptX compatible Bluetooth connection, dedicated high voltage class AB headphone amplifier, MM Phono stage, and 4-line level inputs.

As part of Tidal’s premium subscription, users have access to Tidal masters, encoded in MQA. Tidal offers ‘Master’ quality audio in over 105,000 tracks from Warner Music Group, Tidal artist owners and independent labels. Streaming via Chromecast Audio has zero compression, for maximum clarity.

The move confirms that streaming is now seen a preeminent source of high-quality audio . Installers need only plug the Chromecast dongle in a main source, and add a pair of loudspeakers, for a compact high quality system.

“We’re on the verge of a listening revolution”, says Simon Freethy, MD of Cyrus Audio. “It used to be the case that music streaming services were rejected by traditional audiophiles due to their inherent loss of quality, but with lossless services like Tidal and the possibility to integrate these into affordable, high-quality consumer products.” He adds that the package will help de-mystify the process “and show how quick, simple and surprisingly cost effective it is to be enjoying unlimited real hi-fi streaming audio in minutes.”
