The amplification stage of the Cyrus 8 XPd Qx uses the same technology as the Cyrus 8 XP. Along with this is our Qx DAC module which uses an advanced digital to analogue converter, its own regulated power supply and carefully engineered circuitry to ensure the output is high in detail and accuracy. This advanced DAC upsamples all digital sources to 192 kHz resolution and provides a multitude of sonic benefits including improved timing, smoother treble definition, wider sound staging and more tuneful bass. Together, these elements form a powerful and dynamic integrated amplifier which can fill two rooms of your home with stunning resolution and Cyrus’s award winning tuning. To get the best performance from this amplifier, plug in a PSX-R external power supply. This will separate the functions being performed by the unit to ensure the crucial audio signal remains unaffected by the other processes being performed.
