Cyrus III Amplifiers

Recently I bought a 2nd hand Cyrus-III amp here in The Netherlands. Paid EUR 250 for it, maybe a bit too much…? That's what I thought. As an electronic engineer I immediately opened it up and replaced some major capacitors, added ceramic RF decoupling...

Kenwood VR 2080

Well this is one cool looking piece of a/v equipment. But that is about it. I put this receiver up against my Onkyo which runs my home theater. The remote on the Kenwood is great for all those different components that you've mixed and matched over...

In Wall Volume Control with 15W X 2CH Amplifier and Bluetooth Receiver

This amp almost fit might needs perfectly...except there's no way to turn it off. I thought that the volume control would have an off setting, but as long as it has power the amp is on.

Yamaha A-S701

I bought this on a whim to compare to my Rotel separates. I was thinking about simplifying my system. The Yamaha made a very compelling argument. The sound was a bit more forward than my Rotel which I enjoyed for the short time I had it in my set up....
