Cyrus 6 DAC QXR Integrated Amplifier DAC
The Cyrus 6 DAC QXR is an amazingly versatile integrated amplifier. Working with your analogue and digital sources, it’s a perfect entry point to the world of Cyrus ‘separates’. With a well-trodden upgrade path, it’s a product that will serve you exceptionally well now and for decades to come.
The Cyrus 6 DAC QXR and its sibling the 82 DAC are conceived to be the hubs to your entire audio system. The aim was usability, simplicity and refinement. Supplied with the full iR14 remote control unit, it’s possible to connect almost every analogue and digital source through this highly competent unit.
The bi-wire output of the 6 DAC QXR gives a full 57 Watts into 6 ohms. The power supply is a high current design that uses two transformers to completely separate the digital control stages from the sensitive audio signals – an approach usually reserved for pre/power combination amplifiers.
The 6 DAC QXR features a high performance 24/192 DAC with optical and coaxial inputs and a driver less USB connection for plug and play connectivity to a PC or laptop. It is also possible to upgrade the 6 DAC QXR to 82 DAC QXR specification at a later date.
In the QXR version, in which we use a new ESS-based DAC, as well as allowing input resolutions up to 32bit/ 768k, we have also introduced a new ‘reclocking’ process across all the digital inputs. This substantially reduces jitter and lowers the noise floor, as well as allowing a much shallower filter slope than ever before. This process virtually eliminates phase interference in the audible band (an approach only previously possible with noisy FPGA DAC solutions).
Cyrus 6 DAC QXR features and benefits Trickle Down Advanced Technology:
The Cyrus 6 DAC delivers surprising audio performance and value because it is based on the advanced preamplifier circuitry from the DAC XP Signature; benefitting from a ‘trickle down’ of our most advanced technology.
The bi-wire output of the 6 DAC QXR gives a full 57 Watts into 6 ohms. The power supply is a high current design that uses two transformers to completely separate the digital control stages from the sensitive audio signals.
The 6 DAC QXR features a high performance 24/192 DAC bringing optical and coaxial inputs and a driverless USB connection, allowing plug and play connectivity to a PC or laptop.
Six analogue inputs, a high quality headphone amplifier, Zone 2 and pre amplifier outputs give the 6 DAC flexibility for connecting a wide variety of audio devices.
The microprocessor controlled operating system in the 6 DAC QXR allows extensive programming of many functions within the unit. Input naming, differing display readouts and input volume matching across all sources are just some of the possibilities.
