Landed a job, but it isnt exactly what I'm looking for. As a fresh graduate, should I take it and move later if I'm still not digging it? Sep 28, 2017

        Go for it. Finish it in style with recommendations and a reference and stay at least for a year. If they offer you opportunities to become better at your job (training, courses etcetera) go for it. Even if it is not the best job, it is a good start...

        They're going to call me on Monday to talk about the contract (explain a few things, answer any questions i might have) and then I'll go ahead and sign it.

        I'm also going to tape up sheets saying "save money first, spend on audio/other random things second" all around my room for the first year.

        Thanks again, all of you.

      Bought a Creek 4240 amp for my speakers, turns up with the right channel not working :/
      1. jayeshrc
        jayeshrc
        When i turn the balance knob all the way to the right channel, the left channel fully fades out and the right suddenly goes on with some distortion.. Could it be a bad balance pot?

        Well, the amp started working properly after half an hour, then died completely 15 minutes later. Turns out the output transistors died along with the fuses and some other stuff. Luckily it had been serviced recently and that service had a warranty so it was fixed free of charge.

      Anyone have experience with Cyrus amps? Specifically the Smartpower?
      1. Thad E Ginathom

        Old Cyrus integrated amps. Long time back, a 3i made me feel like I had been listening to distortion rather than music with my previous amp. I still have that amp, but have a Integrated 6VS2 on the desktop. The speakers are poor by comparison: it does not get to show itself off. I actually use the headphone out. This cut-back, simplified system is good enough for my hearing (almost: I'd like better speakers.)

        So, my impression of Cyrus, over the years, is good but I know nothing of recent kit.

        Beware of one thing: they really want your brand loyalty, and all that stuff is made to work and look together. But if you *wanted* to do that, well... I wouldn't mind!

        Haha, I will be mixing and matching. Not sure what preamp I will use yet, but I wanted to move towards a separate pre/power amp setup and this could be my first entry into that space. Just wanted to make sure the Cyrus Smartpower is worth as a first step into this space

        Thankfully not. I was looking around to see if the postman was still hanging around waiting for me to open my mailbox and open the package so that he could slap a bill on me, but no. Somehow the office in Frankfurt realized the mistake and marked it free of customs charges.

        Dont know how, but I'm curious cause its unopened!

Then, "ah I need speakers for my room so i dont have anything on/in my ears". Recently it was "I need headphones so I dont disturb my neighbours in the night" (not that anyone ever complained)
