-Cyrus 8XP Amplifer
The standard Cyrus 8 XP integrated amplifier is very well specified with a generous power output, six analogue inputs, a zone two output so you can play any source in another part of your home, Bi-wireable speaker terminals, headphone output with a good quality amplifier, Pre-amplifier output (for bi-amping), large clear high quality LCD screen, and a sophisticated control system with system remote control are all provided. Input sensitivity matching is also included
The XP platform is designed so that we can invest strongly one main project and derive several versions that benefit from this larger investment. The Cyrus 8 XP integrated amplifier benefited from the core engineering invested to design the new Pre XP model. We then incorporate a new version of our highly dynamic 2 x 70 watt power amplifier plus a new twin transformer power supply to take advantage of new components that have recently become available. The twin transformers feed two separate power supply stages each with further sub regulation. The main 350 VA Toroidal transformer with 5 regulated rails is twinned with a separate toroidal transformer for control systems. The result will surprise customers new to Cyrus as they discover truly high-end performance from a surprisingly compact Cyrus die-cast chassis.
Because of these attributes the Cyrus 8 XP integrated amplifier is able to deliver remarkable performance. 70W into 8 is the conservative rating but the amplifier can deliver over 300 watts for short dynamic bursts of music. The performance is both very subtle yet powerful enough to convincingly replay large scale music such a major symphonic or powerful rock programs. In an age where compressed digital sources are popular, amplifiers capable of this dynamic urge are going to become increasingly important to the quality conscious music fan
Upgrade by adding a Cyrus PSX-R power supply. This is Cyrus' most popular upgrade and can be customer fitted by simply plugging the supplied cable into the socket on the back of the 8 XP. In fact Cyrus has sold more PSX-R's than any other model. It provides a super smooth supply of DC power to the sensitive pre-amplifier audio stages of the Cyrus 8 XP integrated amplifier. The effect is a marked improvement in bass and a better, more solid stereo image.
