Cyrus Classic Pre-Amplifier

Cyrus Audio launches "new and improved" Classic series of hi-fi separates.


£2,162.50 Exc. VAT |  



In both the new Classic AMP and Classic PRE, the circuit design has been re-designed entirely and the internal components have also been upgraded. These should result in the all-important sound improvements, says Cyrus, who is aiming for longevity with the new range.

Both models are upgrades to products that have been part of the company's range for over a decade.

Cyrus Classic Pre Amplifier

The new Cyrus Classic PRE amplifier and Classic AMP form part of the new and improved Classic series, using the knowledge gained from the development of there XR series to make the new Classic series the best it has ever been. 


Balanced Outputs
MM Phono Stage
Brushed Black only


This preamplifier provides a significant step up in performance from previous versions by using everything that we learnt when developing the fantastic XR Series, but retaining the familiar design of the Classic series. The circuit design has been completely re-designed and the majority of the internal components have been upgraded by the Cyrus R&D team, which has resulted in sound improvements that will help the Classic series retain a loyal fan base for years to come.

Analogue Preamplifier

The analogue preamp features relay input selection for the five analogue inputs and a precision gain control for volume. The design is intentionally wide bandwidth.


Un/Balanced Outputs

The unbalanced outputs are provided for close wired systems where the power amplifier is located close to the Classic Pre. The balanced outputs are recommended for longer cable runs in systems where the Classic Pre is driving power amplifiers placed close to the system speakers or active speakers.


Power Supply

The Classic Pre power supply includes a 74VA toroidal power transformer delivering power to a high capacity power supply reserve. Within the circuit design, a total of 11 independent power supply regulators regulate, then sub-regulate quiet power. Digital control circuits are assigned a separate mains power supply, completely isolated from the signal circuitry.


The Classic Pre includes a port for the PSX-R power supply. Power from the PSX-R is routed internally to the analogue stages of the preamplifier to provide a more stable, low-noise power supply for the analogue preamp and post-DAC stages of the D/A converter.


Phono MM Input

The phono MM input stage design features dual active gain stages and passive RIAA equalisation.
