DVD 7 is one of the world’s finest DVD players featuring superb video performance. It is also an excellent high-end CD player capable of impressive performance within a top-flight audio system. Like all Cyrus video components the DVD 7+ is very easy to operate as we have hidden the more advanced features within the clear, high quality remote system. The audio performance of this advanced DVD player could be further improved by fitting the latest high-end DAC converters on a simple plug-in card.
The DVD 7+ included the latest Cyrus navigation GUI (on screen display or Graphic User Interface for the tech’s) and features the same phantom speaker options found in the DVD 8. This allows the listener to enjoy surround sound films while only needing 2 main speakers. In this way you can buy the player you really want and add the additional channels of amplification and speakers as and when you wish retrospectively.
The Cyrus DVD7+ builds on the fine reputation of the DVD7, that was established as a player equally capable of satisfying the demands of movie buffs or music-loving audiophiles, delivering a sonic performance equalling a Cyrus CD player and DVD video performance to match. With a new generation of firmware, the DVD7+ brought a fresh new feel to the operation of our player with a quick-access menu bar for all primary set up and navigation functions.
Additional features for the DVD7+ included a close up Zoom control with Pan capability, more powerful disc-reading software to keep pace with changes in disc technology and more sophisticated video and audio programming. A complete Cyrus Home Theatre system with a DVD7+ source, a Cyrus digital surround sound decoder, a set of Cyrus power amplifiers, a set of Cyrus speakers and a quality video monitor will re-create a breathtaking cinema experience in the home and deliver audio performance which will satisfy the most discerning of Cyrus audiophiles.
The video output signals from the DVD7+ originate from a high resolution video encoder and are buffered through high speed fully discrete analogue amplifier stages for all format outputs. High quality linear power supply regulators and careful application of circuit decoupling ensure that the amplifiers maintain good transient performance and exhibit a low noise floor.
At the heart of any DVD player, the DVD decoding engine is responsible for accurately recovering the digital data stream from the disc and decoding this into video and audio information. The DVD7+ employs one of the latest generation of high speed decoders and includes within a single environment the major signal processing functions of MPEG decoding, video encoding (multiple formats), OSD display and audio decoding. This central processing engine also benefits from a single, high accuracy master clock for all functions.
Dual domain topology. The DVD7+ is constructed in two physically separate domains to isolate the sensitive analogue video and audio signals from the high speed digital disc reading and decoding functions. Separate power supplies are configured for the two domains to eliminate noise coupling which can occur in players with single domain construction and common power supplies.
Based on the 24 bit technology developed for the acclaimed CD7, the audio DAC of the DVD7+ features an integrated stereo filter DAC running at 8 times base sample rate. This state of the art converter has excellent technical performance in all areas. The exceptional dynamic range performance ensures faithful reproduction of essential detail which can so easily be lost from recordings.
