Cyrus DAC XP Signature Preamplifier
The circuits in the Cyrus DAC XP Signature have been designed to allow them to be optimised with the addition of a PSX R2 power supply. When used as such, the built-in power supply handles most of the processing duties, but the power hungry filter stages are independent. This releases the full potential of the system.
At the heart of the DAC XP Signature is an upsampling digital to analogue converter which transforms any music into the highest possible 32-bit resolution. The fullness, depth and quality of the sound this produces is really impressive. The amplification process of the DAC XP Signature has also been painstakingly tuned to produce the trademark Cyrus sound – quality and purity guaranteed.
Cyrus’s engineers have created their most stable circuit yet, making sure that there’s no jitter and your music is perfectly timed throughout. The built-in pre amp provides a full and clear sound output no matter what you’re listening to – using Cyrus’s best pre amp technology.
The chassis of the Cyrus DAC XP Signature is divided into two entirely separate sections – an audiophile DAC and a fully balanced analogue pre amplifier. Keeping these processes completely separate means each can be given all of the power it needs on a separate circuit, avoiding any distortion or noise interference.
Tuned to produce the purest Cyrus sound, the DAC XP Signature has Cyrus’s most sophisticated re-clocking circuit to ensure no jitter
The DAC is able to measure the precision of incoming digital sources and treat them accordingly. This means that high accuracy sources like the CD Xt Signature are digitally re-clocked by a close tolerance circuit with triple quartz references. Meanwhile for low accuracy sources the high quality DAC relaxes its re-clocking precision to ensure reliable playback.
Cyrus has a heritage of over three decades of award-winning products. Since the foundation of the company, we have won plaudits the world over for our incredible engineering expertise and the finesse of our the application to turn these technologies into ‘real-world’ products .
Most hi-fi companies can claim a number of award for products. At Cyrus, however, we have a number of self-imposed constraints – most obviously, the small size of our products.
It’s [relatively] easy to design great sounding products without any physical or budgetary restrictions. It’s another thing entirely to consistently defy the conventional wisdom, to challenge every precept in audio and to continuously push the envelope of audio technology.
