Cyrus' new Lyric series music players may look like inkjet printers, but don't judge them on their looks – they may be ideal hubs for audiophile-grade living room audio. Both the Lyric 05 (80W per channel, 24-bit DAC) and Lyric 09 (170W per channel, 32-bit DAC) can stream 24-bit, 192kHz tunes from other devices on a local network, with an iPad app serving as the remote control. That's just the start of their audio abilities, though. They'll also stream internet radio, and they play most music from Bluetooth- or USB-based sources; more conventional listeners still have access to a CD player, DAB+ radio, FM radio and a mixture of both analog and digital inputs. Prices are high at £2,250 ($3,673) for a Lyric 05 and £3,000 ($4,897) for a Lyric 09, but the premium may be worthwhile for music aficionados unwilling to compromise on either convenience or sound quality.
