Euphony Audio Summus Endpoint Review
How do you improve upon digital
Review By Tom Gibbs
From late 2019 into 2020, my personal life was an absolute
shambles, mostly due to a seemingly never-ending series of health crises that
quite nearly took me down with them. The only really positive thing (besides
living through it all!) that kept me grounded in my audiophile reality was the
arrival of the Euphony Summus Server. Which amazingly took an almost five-year
process from my first contact with Euphony's DaliborKasac — at the point when
he first reached out to me, I didn't really completely know what digital file
streaming was about. But I must give him credit: Dalibor — if anything — was
definitely persistent! Getting the Summus was an absolute godsend;
the absence of the recently departed Sonore Signature Optical Rendu streamer had
left a rather gaping hole in my system's audiophile credibility.

Cyrus One HD
Int. Amplifier / DAC Review
The Cyrus One HD Integrated Amplifier is not inexpensive at $1,500 but nobody said that great sound quality would be cheap
Review By W. Jennings
Cyrus is a very interesting British audio manufacturer that
doesn't receive a lot of press coverage in North America; a reality that is starting to change because
it's hard to keep a secret for over thirty years. Very much like Croft Acoustics; another British manufacturer with a cult following, Cyrus have been engineering some of the best hi-fi in the world for over 30 years but without a lot of fanfare. The British press fall over themselves to review their extensive range of products and
it's rare to see any component not receive a "rave" review. The Cyrus One HD Integrated Amplifier hopes to continue that
streak. I have owned and enjoyed an original Cyrus One in the past so when a press tour of the new One HD was announced, I requested that I be included.

The Beasts In The Wall
Article By Grey Rollins
mother, despite being a well-educated woman and pretty level-headed in the
bargain, had one belief that was suspiciously close to being rank superstition.
Although she was perfectly willing to accept the conveniences afforded by modern
electrical appliances, those pesky little demons hiding in the electrical outlet
filled her with irrational fear. At some point in her life, she must have been
shocked badly by electricity, because she was deathly afraid of getting even the
slightest tingle, ever again. When I asked her what she was so afraid of, she
waved her hands vaguely in the air and tried to describe something with teeth
and a vicious temper and... I frowned, trying to make sense of her description. "Sounds
almost like you're describing tiny piranha." ... "Exactly," she said, folding her arms and sitting back, lips
drawn tight. And I never managed to dissuade her from that view. She went
to her grave thinking, somehow, that there was an extra-dimensional portal
between a river in the Amazonian rain forest and a power outlet....

Is CD Or Vinyl Better?
Article By Steven Schneider
VALVE Volume 2 Number
3 March 1995
I recently purchased the CD version of
the RCA High Fidelity Living Stereo reissue of Richard Strauss' Also Sprach
Zarathustra, Op. 30 [09026-61 494-2] and wanted to compare it with my brand new Classic Records (a mail order firm)
LP reissue [LSC1806] of the same 1955 recording session. The performance features Fritz Reiner directing the Chicago
Symphony. The equipment used for this review were a Revox 8226 CD player, a DUAL 5000 turntable, Signet
AM30s cartridge, Eico ST84 preamplifier, a custom built Macintosh MI 200AB triode stereo amplifier using 8005 output
tubes, and a pair of custom built three way JBL Hartsfield speakers. The test that I performed was an A-B test between
the CD and the record running simultaneously. This test was only conducted on the first side of the record
because it was too difficult to align side B of the record with the same place on
the CD. I also switched between both sources roughly every two minutes.
