The new Cyrus Pre DAC, 8XP d and 6XP 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.

The Cyrus Pre DAC is a preamplifier based on circuitry Cyrus developed for the DAC XP but with a more affordable DAC stage. The Cyrus Pre DAC's digital inputs can accept a wide range of inputs including USB digital feeds. The USB input has been designed so that the Cyrus Pre DAC appears automatically as a sound card to an attached computer. This allows any music files on the computer to be easily played back directly through the high performance DAC's in your Cyrus system. For even higher performance an optional Qx DAC upgrade is available to enable playback performance o files stored on a computer to be boosted to almost Cyrus CD quality.

Via USB you can play digital from you laptop, PC or MAC through the Cyrus Pre DAC's built in high performance DAC's. Uncompressed files sound best but anything that plays on your computer will sound better through the Cyrus Pre DAC. You can even add remote control of your media with an iTouch or Logitech accessory.

The Cyrus Pre DAC 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).

Cyrus selected magnesium and a high tech pressure casting method for their main chassis because, like other high performance industries, Cyrus recognise many unique and desirable properties that help Cyrus improve their products. Cyrus components are compact yet powerful, so how can they achieve this miracle of engineering? Cyrus' one-piece magnesium chassis creates a fabulously efficient way of radiating heat. This efficiency means Cyrus do not need massive heat sinks inside a big box. Cyrus components can. Therefore, be smaller and more home-friendly than the behemoths that use conventional case technology.
