Cyrus Pre2 DAC Preamplifier
The Cyrus Pre2 DAC Preamplifier 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 and QX module.
The Pre2 DAC separates the pre amp into its own chassis and provides a dedicated power supply which means the pre amp can resolve more detail. Complete with a built-in DAC, the pre amp is compatible with a very wide range of sources such as CD players, streamers or your TV digital audio out.
The Cyrus Pre2 DAC preamplifier offers a sonic step up in performance from their 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.
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.
The Pre2 DAC includes a carefully designed top quality digital section built into the pre amplifier with a Burr Brown 24-bit/192k DAC and a carefully designed power supply. With 5 digital inputs that enable the amplifier to connect and clearly improve the sound of connected digital sources including; your computer, DVD player, TV and many other digital sources. Cyrus’s premium Qx DAC upgrade is available which takes performance to a higher level again.
The Pre2 DAC is designed to be partnered with one of their 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.
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 their 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.
