CYRUS XR SERIES
The XR Series is latest series of products from Cyrus. An uncompromising range of discrete audiophile components, the performance of which elevates Cyrus into the very highest echelons of transparency and precision.
XR is nothing short of a revolution in audio quality. Built from the ground-up, using an accumulated knowledge of over a decade, XR represents the best-in-class application of new DAC technologies, Power supply Design, Circuit topology, User Interface and, is built entirely in the UK using the highest specification of components.
The i7-XR is one of the first wave of products, heralding the new XR series of Cyrus components. The familiar Cyrus precision die-cast case is the same, but everything else has changed. With ground-up engineering inside, an all-new phantom black paint finish, touch-sensitive controls and a higher resolution display that is customisable for brightness, contrast and polarity, the high-quality finish of XR makes a strong statement.
The wideband power amplifier of the i7-XR responds from DC to beyond 100kHz ensuring ruler-flat frequency response and keeping any undesirable phase shifts out of the audio band. With a generous, over-specified power supply the i7-XR power amplifier delivers music with a scale and authority that belies its 52W rating.
ALL NEW PRE AMPLIFIER
Derived from the new high-end Pre-XR preamplifier, the i7-XR analogue preamp features relay input selection and a new high-performance gain stage. This short-path design makes the analogue preamplifier extremely transparent. With four analogue inputs and phono MM, the i7-XR will cover just about any system requirement for analogue connectivity.
XR DIGITAL PERFORMANCE
The DAC input stage of the i7-XR features a new 2nd generation version of our award-winning QXR DAC, but with an all-new high-speed analogue buffer stage. Seven digital filter alignment options are user adjustable to suit the taste of the listener. Input options include USB audio (to 768k sample rate) and DSD to DSD512, 2 x SPDIF digital and 2 x optical digital inputs.
LOW NOISE PHONO STAGE FOR VINYL
Inheriting many design features of the award-winning Phono Signature, the phono stage in the i7-XR performs at a level way above its class. Featuring low background noise and high dynamic range, the phono stage is a perfect complement for a quality vinyl turntable source.
