Cyrus Pre₂ DAC QXR Integrated Amplifier
The Cyrus QXR
The Cyrus Pre2 DAC QXR offers complete control of your analogue and digital sources. With perfect balance, it delivers a superlative performance, although can easily be upgraded through the addition of a PSX R2
The Pre2 DAC QXR separates the pre amp into its own chassis and provides a dedicated power supply which means the pre amp can resolve more detail. This QXR version features a high performance 32bit/768k DAC with optical and coaxial inputs and an all-new asynchronous USB connection for plug and play connectivity to a PC or laptop, the pre amp is compatible with a very wide range of sources such as CD players, streamers or your TV digital audio out.
The Pre2 DAC offers a sonic step up in performance from our integrated amplifiers. This is achieved because the pre amplifier circuitry has its own power supply. The internal power supply provides isolation from the demands of other system elements, making available an additional level of dynamics and resolution. The digital section also sounds better for the same reasons, especially when used with the optional Qx card, the audio quality rises further still.
The Pre2 DAC QXR is designed to be partnered with one of our matching power amplifiers such as the X Power, Stereo 200 or Mono X 300 Signature. Build your system with a CD i or CD t and a Stream X Signature or Stream Xa for an exceptional music experience. Add a dedicated power supply such as the PSX R2 to further enhance the pre amp’s resolution.
If a PSX R2 is connected, owners will hear a large jump in performance as the PSX R2 feeds the pre amp with a highly regulated and super smooth DC feed. The sonic uplift from the PSX R2 means the close tolerance components in the pre amp can be fully appreciated as they now benefit from the smoother supply.
