Ideal for using at the heart of a Cyrus system, the Cyrus Pre2 DAC controls it all.

At the heart of a Cyrus system
Designed to be paired with the X Power, Stereo 200 or Mono X 300 Signature power amplifiers, the Pre2 DAC is a key part of an integrated Cyrus system. Because the pre-amplifier section has a dedicated power supply and sits in its own casing, the sound quality is much improved over the integrated Cyrus amps. All the digital and analogue connectivity that makes these amps so popular is still present and correct, making the Pre2 DAC every bit as system friendly.

Cyrus sound quality
Hand built in the UK, the Pre2 DAC shows typical Cyrus attention to detail. Within the high quality casing is a dedicated toroidal mains transformer. Combined with the short signal path circuitry, this delivers typical Cyrus sound – dynamic, precise and with every detail finely etched.

Built-in DAC with USB, coaxial and optical inputs
Featuring a built-in, Burr Brown DAC and five digital inputs, the Cyrus Pre2 DAC is the ideal way of upgrading all your digital sources at the same time as buying a new pre-amplifier. Older or lower spec digital devices benefit greatly in terms of sound quality by using the high spec DAC built into the Cyrus rather than their own. With two optical and two coaxial inputs you could, for example, connect your TV, set-top TV box, Blu-ray or games console and CD player. The fifth digital input takes the form of a USB interface. This lets you connect your PC or Mac and access stored or streaming music services.

Upgrade path
There are a couple of upgrade paths available for the Pre2 DAC. First is the option of adding the famous PSX-R2 outboard power supply - for truly high-end amplification. Also, by adding the QXR DAC board, you can improve the digital sound to reference quality.

Unique Cyrus design and quality
The distinctive Cyrus case offers a number of advantages over more traditional hi-fi. The die-cast casing is extremely solid and strongly resists both electrical and mechanical interference from surrounding sources. Integrated heat sink vents also keep it cool in the most discreet and stylish fashion. In terms of practically, Cyrus is a great space saver, with two units taking the space of one on most hi-fi shelves.

Keep control of your whole Cyrus system, with the Cyrus Pre2 DAC.
