Cyrus 8₂ DAC QXR Integrated Amplifier / DAC
The Cyrus 8₂ DAC QXR integrated amplifier with an impressive 88 Watts per channel, and includes six analogue inputs which you can individually name from a list of options in the set up wizard. Also included is a great headphone facility and twin speaker output for bi-wiring. The Cyrus 8₂ DAC is the perfect partner for the CD i or CD t.
Cyrus 8₂ DAC QXR features and benefits Trickle Down Advanced Technology:
The Cyrus 8₂ DAC QXR 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 8₂ DAC QXR gives a full 88 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.
In the 8₂ DAC QXR Cyrus use a new ESS-based DAC, as well as allowing input resolutions up to 32bit/ 768k, Cyrus 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).
Six analogue inputs, a high quality headphone amplifier, Zone 2 and pre amplifier outputs give the 82 DAC flexibility for connecting a wide variety of audio devices. There is also a PSX-R port on the 82 DAC allowing connectivity of the instant upgrade off-board power supply.
The microprocessor controlled operating system in the
8₂ DAC 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.
