AUDIOPHILE SOUND QUALITY
Thoroughly engineered and generously specced, it comes as little surprise to find the Cyrus 6a is one of the best sounding amplifiers in its class. Beginning with the power supply, the Cyrus 6a uses not one but two high quality toroidal power transformers. The reason for this is that one of them can supply the functional needs of the amp, such as display and control, whilst not affecting the current-critical power amp section. The result is sound quality that benefits greatly in terms of agility and transient attack.
Sharing core technologies with other, more expensive, Cyrus amplifiers not only benefits the sound quality of the 6a but also makes it an easy and seamless process to upgrade and expand your Cyrus amplification.
There are many upgrade paths available for the 6a with the first being to add separate power amplification to enable bi-amping. The twin pre-outputs facilitate adding separate power amps, such as the 8 Power, for future upgrading. Additionally you can, at any time, return the amp to Cyrus and have the spec uprated to 8a level. Once this has been done, there's the option of adding the famous PSX-R outboard power supply - for truly high-end amplification. Finally, by adding the DAC board, you'll gain five extra digital inputs, including a USB for your computer. This is an ideal way of improving the sound of your digital sources - especially older or lower spec ones. For the finest digital sound possible, the Qx DAC board improves the digital sound to reference quality.
UNIQUE CYRUS DESIGN AND QUALITY
For some decades now, Cyrus products have been instantly recognisable by their half-size case design. This not only makes them look more compact and attractive than other hi-fi separates but is practical, too; two units can be placed side by side without taking up any more width than a conventional hi-fi separate. Just as recognisable is the high quality, die-cast casing. A feature of Cyrus products since the late '80s, this very high quality casing not only looks great but has important sonic benefits, too. In mechanical terms, the dense casing provides a non-resonant nature, minimising microphonic effects. The non-ferrous composition also provides superior shielding against various electrical interference, such as RF disturbance.
The Cyrus 6a is fitted with a clear display that gives valuable status information such as source selection and volume level. What's more, the display can be programmed to display the exact name of your source for easy identification.
CYRUS SYSTEM SYNERGY
Cyrus takes system synergy seriously. Not only do all their products aesthetically match one another but there's also a unique rack that's specifically designed for them - the Hark. In addition to this, the Cyrus 6a features MC-Bus connectivity, allowing the amplifier to integrate smoothly into a complete Cyrus system using just a single remote control.
For a talented amp with even greater potential for the future, the Cyrus 6a leads the field.
