-Cyrus 8XPD Amplifier
The new Cyrus 8XP d amplifier platform includes many features new to Cyrus amplifiers such as onboard DACs and multi-source / multi-zone features. However it is the adoption of the preamplifier from the DAC XP that is the key feature. The new preamp is a huge step up in performance in Cyrus' 6 & 8 series models and together with expanded upgradeability our amplifiers now deliver far higher levels of performance than before.
Combining Cyrus' latest XP series preamplifier with a newly revised 2 x 70 watt power amplifier has resulted in the Cyrus 8 XP d integrated amplifier offering an unusually subtle and detailed sound. The Cyrus 8 XPd's power amplifier section is powerful for almost any size listening room, producing bass instruments with strong and detailed confidence. Because the Cyrus 8XP d is based on the more exotic X series circuitry, the Cyrus 8XP delivers such a surprisingly sophisticated performance for its price point.
With the benefits of digital inputs the Cyrus 8XPd becomes not only a wonderfully rewarding hi-fi amplifier, able to improve many digital sources through its 'Cyrus quality 'DAC's but more importantly its able to reproduce these digital sources to a high enough standard to satisfy experienced hi-fi fans. The Cyrus 8Xpd's built in DAC is the latest in a long line of top quality Cyrus DAC designs able to upgrade the performance of any digital source. For those looking for even greater improvements would try looking at the 'Cyrus 8XP d Qx' which features a more advanced DAC module known as the Cyrus Qx DAC.
Via USB you can play digital from you laptop, PC or MAC through the Cyrus 8XP d's built in high performance DAC's. Uncompressed files sound best but anything that plays on your computer will sound better through the Cyrus 8XP d. You can even add remote control of your media with an iTouch or Logitech accessory.
The Cyrus 8 XP d includes a zone 2 feature for easy Multiroom audio. All you need is an iPod dock with an aux-in & remote volume, and hey presto; you can listen to a CD in the lounge (zone 1) and radio in the kitchen (zone 2).
