However your music is stored, it will benefit from the advanced digital to analogue converter and amplification process also fitted into Lyric 05. 

Browse and control your music with ease using Cadence, our iOS app. Or use Lyric’s learning IR remote control as your central remote, to control your TV and Satellite box as well as Lyric 05.

Lyric 05 uses many of our best music playing technologies, as detailed below.

CD Player

We’ve custom tailored our Servo Evolution (SE₂) disc reading system, which has won multiple awards for its ability to extract more information from a disc than any other system. The SE₂ software in Lyric 05 is now more reliable and impressive than ever!

Music Streamer

Our advanced music streaming technology can be paired with any Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) or Digital Living Network Alliance (DNLA) device, to allow you to browse and play your entire digital music collection wirelessly.

FM, DAB+ and Internet Radio

Listen to your favourite radio stations using FM or DAB+. Plus, access thousands of radio stations as well as a range of podcasts from around the world through our internet radio service.

Auxiliary inputs

Front and rear USB connections allow you to play music from your mobile phone or USB stick. Connect an Apple product in this way, and Lyric 05 will charge it while it is connected.

Lyric 05 also has a USB B input which provides a strong connection between your laptop and the unit.

SPDIF Optical and SPDIF Coaxial inputs allow you to connect a range of other inputs to your Lyric product, for example connect your TV or AV system to hear how its sound can be transformed.


The ability to easily connect any Bluetooth® enabled device means you really can play music from any source through your Lyric 05.

Expert Digital to Analogue Conversion

Lyric 05 is able to play the highest resolution 24 bit files, which are converted into music your ears love to hear in a process which has been tuned to ensure that your music retains all of its life and detail.

Power Amplifier

Our advanced amplification technology was redesigned for Lyric Series to provide improved efficiency, meaning more power can be dedicated to the amplification process – and you can definitely hear the difference!

Speaker Impedance Detection

Whenever speakers are connected to Lyric 05, its Speaker Impedance Detection system measures the impedance of the speakers and adjusts the frequency of its output accordingly, making sure you always get the most out of the speakers you use.

Speaker Outputs

As well as providing a stereo pair of speaker outputs, Lyric 05 has an optional subwoofer output.
