AV Master - Digital AV Decoder

The Cyrus AV-master was the state-of-the art audio processor that was primarily designed for the ultimate in sound quality for decoding multi-channel AV source material.  For the Cyrus stereo enthusiast with a serious interest in Home Cinema the AV-master provided the natural addition to his established Cyrus stereo system. With four straight line audio inputs, the versatile AV-master may also be used as the control centre of a world-class free-standing home theatre system.

Cyrus quality centre channel amplifier which gives Uncompromised reproduction from the centre dialogue channel.  20 memories for favourite settings with easy recall of settings for a wide range of program material. Fully automatic level alignment for accurate, instant alignment of sound channels using a miniature microphone (supplied). Equipped with four line inputs for useful input expansion from an existing stereo system.  Allows for an optional stand alone installation with 2 power amplifiers for the front and surround speakers.  Interactive display for mode indication and calibration guidance and a full remote control facility.

Reproduction of the sensitive centre channel dialogue information is a key issue in a Home Cinema system. The AV-master fashions a single high current power amplifier of the same order of quality as Cyrus amplifiers to complement the performance of the full Cyrus set-up. With four independent straight-line audio inputs and carefully designed decoding circuitry the AV-master enjoys an unprecedented audio quality. Partnered with a Cyrus stereo system, the AV-master re-creates the original dynamics of the recording to provide breath-taking experience in home cinema.

In a stand-alone system, the AV-master may be used as the control centre of an outstanding audio system for AV processing or stereo application. This is facilitated by the AV-master's "true stereo" by-pass mode.

In keeping with the standards set by the other Cyrus products, the level controls of the AVmaster are high precision step attenuators. This ensures that all system channel balance settings track accurately at every listening level for correct image projection. 20 Configuration memories are user-programmable to store favoured settings for easy recall. The memory store contains both mode setting and inter-channel balance information for flexibility when changing between a variety of program material and seating positions. The memory store is a non-volatile solid state device with unlimited data retention time.
