The Cyrus 8a is our best integrated amplifier. It provides an impressive 88 Watts per channel, through an expertly engineered circuit finely tuned to provide our trademark sound quality. Six analogue inputs and two zone playing capacity make the Cyrus 8a a versatile integrated amplifier – and you can rest assured the sound quality is well above par too.
Multi-zoning capabilities allow you to play two sources through this integrated amplifier at once - meaning it can transform the sound throughout your home. The amplifier’s powerful onboard software system allows the customization of many features including individual input sensitivity matching and multiple display modes.
All of the components in our products are subjected to rigorous listening testing to find those which provide the best possible sound quality. This integrated amplifier is no different, and it boasts filtering and circuitry techniques which stem from 30 years of research into how we can get the most detail and energy from your music.
The Cyrus 8a uses a reengineered power supply design which provides huge peak power output producing a sound which competes favourably with amplifiers of double its conservatively rated 70W RMS specifications.
Multi zoning capabilities allow you to play two sources through this integrated amplifier at once - meaning it can transform the sound throughout your home. The amplifier’s powerful onboard software system allows the customization of many features including individual input sensitivity matching and multiple display modes.
Now you never have to settle for low sound quality again.
Our best integrated amplifier, the Cyrus 8a is well suited to the CD i. It can be paired with a PSX-R₂ to give it a boost, or upgraded when your thirst for that pure hi-fi sound wants more.
Trickle Down Advanced Technology:
The Cyrus 8a 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 Cyrus 8a 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.
Six analogue inputs, a high quality headphone amplifier, Zone 2 and pre amplifier outputs give the 8a flexibility for connecting a wide variety of audio devices.
The 8a can be modified with the additional 24/192 DAC bringing 5 extra inputs, including USB to this already versatile amplifier. There is also a PSX-R ₂ port on the 8a allowing connectivity of the instant upgrade off-board power supply.
The microprocessor controlled operating system in the Cyrus 8a 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.
