Cyrus 82 DAC QXR Integrated Amplifier + DAC is the brand’s highest performing unit featuring a full set of digital and analogue inputs enabling connection to virtually any source and output directly to speakers. Using carefully tuned components and distinctive circuit layout, the 82 DAC provides a transparent ‘window’ to audio, unravelling layers of detail and intricacy in the audio that weaker amplifiers are unable to achieve.
Six analogue inputs, a first-rate headphone amplifier, Zone 2 and pre amplifier outputs ensure flexibility for connecting a vast variety of audio devices. A PSX R2 port allows off-board power supply connectivity.
Aimed for usability, simplicity and refinement, 82 is supplied with remote control allowing you to connect most analogue and digital sources. The amp is capable of outputting 138mW per channel into 16ohm loads to effortlessly drive headphones with impedances up to 64ohm. The bi-wire output gives a full 88 Watts into 6 ohms to drive even the most challenging loudspeaker loads. To ensure peak quality, the power supply is a high current structure that uses twin transformers to completely isolate the digital control stages from the highly receptive audio signals – a method typically reserved for pre/power combi amplifiers.
The 82 DAC features a premium grade 38/786k DAC with optical and coaxial inputs and a driver less USB connection supporting up to ‘Native’ DSD 512 formats for plug and play connectivity to a PC or laptop. The state-of-the-art ESS DAC features asynchronous upsampling for superior audio transfer regardless of the source type. Toslink and digital S/PDIF inputs are ‘reclocked’ to reduce noisy ‘jitter’ for enhanced audio to the pre-amp stage.
