  • CYRUS Stereo 200 – Power Amplifier

    The Cyrus Stereo 200 is an award winning high performance power amplifier incorporating a new and unique Cyrus topology that combines the benefits of high efficiency and lower heat generation from a digital output stage, with our highly refined analogue power supply design.

     

    Delivering a herculean 2 x 203 Watts into 6Ω from the half width Cyrus die-cast aluminium chassis this high quality power amp provides enormous continuous power and superb dynamics.

    Cyrus’ new Stereo 200 power amplifier is the first hybrid power amplifier to be launched from this new platform. By “hybrid” we mean it incorporates a traditional Cyrus power supply design with a low noise toroidal transformer, married with a new, high power, class D output device. This combination provides enormous continuous power and superb dynamics.

  • CYRUS Mono X 300 Signature – Power Amplifier

    Our best power amplifier, the Mono X 300 Signature can provide an enormous 319 Watts of power to your speakers (through 6 Ohms). Our Zero Feedback technology means that the sound coming out of the amp is exactly the same as the one going in – just bigger. The amplification processes inside this handcrafted Cyrus chassis have been expertly engineered with complex circuitry making sure that the output is powerful and precise.

    Mono X 300 Signature contains a 305VA ultra-low noise transformer and through our expertly engineered circuitry we ensure that nothing is added to the signal as it passes through the amplifier. As music volumes drop, it becomes increasingly important that the only sound being issued from a hi-fi system is the music itself. Our Zero Feedback technology means that in tests, our best power amplifier produces negligible distortion at low volume.

    To maintain the precise sound quality Cyrus is known for, but ensure adequate ventilation of our power amps, we’ve developed a smart cooling system for the Mono X 300 Signature. This system only activates the fan when it’s needed – when you’re listening at high volumes. When the volume drops or silences are detected, the fan automatically switches off so there’s never any unwanted background noise.

  • CYRUS PSX-R2

    PSX-R₂ provides an extremely smooth and stable DC feed allowing any partnered component to achieve its full potential. Perceive new levels of fine detail, the PSX-R₂ allows you to comprehend subtle emotional nuances that expose the performer’s emotion and passion.

    These elements are always captured in the recording but unresolved until the system is able to discern a higher level of detail. A stable, strong and separated power supply can provide huge sound quality benefits for a hi-fi system.

    • PSX-R upgrades available for Stream XP2, Stream Xa, CD i, 82 DAC, Pre2 DAC , DAC XP Sig, X Power
  • CYRUS Qx 24/192 DAC

    The Qx DAC is a circuit board of made up of audiophile digital and analogue components which converts your digital sources to analogue in the highest possible resolution available. Although it processes the best 24-bit files in high resolution, the Qx DAC makes the most of any input you supply it with. Whatever the resolution of the incoming digital source, the Qx DAC takes that signal and upsamples it to the highest 192kHz resolution, meaning it will improve the sound of all your connected digital sources.

    The effects of the high end DAC components used in the Qx DAC board are instantly noticeable; you will hear new details in the recordings, enjoy clearer and more defined higher frequencies and experience deeper tighter low frequencies through your system. Rather than simply using a highly specified DAC chip, we have created an entire circuit board to handle the conversion process. Through this we have been able to carefully tune the output and capture subtle sounds which would otherwise be lost.

    This board isn’t just a sophisticated processor; it includes an advanced power supply and multiple filtering techniques to enhance the performance of the DAC. Quartz reference anti-jitter circuits eliminate timing errors, which manifest themselves as unwanted signals on the output.

    In particular, much work went into getting exceptional low level response from the Qx DAC card, meaning even the smallest signals are picked up and communicated brilliantly. Many of our other DAC products also have the capacity to have the higher definition Qx DAC card added to them – speak to your local Cyrus retailer for more information on how you can upgrade your product.

    QX Card upgrade available in-store for: Stream XP2, 82 DAC, Pre2 DAC
