Hi,

Could you please elaborate on similarities and differences in sound characteristics? 

Speakers 4 ohm Focal

I would say the Cyrus sounds more clinical/analytical than the Linn and personally wouldn't match it with Focal.

FWIW. My preference for Focal would be Arcam, Pathos, UR Unico and Electrcompaniet.

Thanks!

Wouldn't adding the PSX-R external power supply make Cyrus sound less clinical?

It is only my opinion - and I have never owned Cyrus, as my taste lies at the warmer end of the spectrum - is that it will improve the sound, but the sound signature will be similar.
