CYRUS DAC XP Signature Pre-Amp
At the heart of the DAC XP Signature is an upsampling digital to analogue converter which transforms any music into the highest possible 32-bit resolution. The fullness, depth and quality of the sound this produces is really impressive.
Derived from the Anniversary system, the 32-bit DAC allows any digital source up to 24/192 to be converted with the highest accuracy possible. Two stage upsampling design allows even the quietest details to be reproduced faithfully due to quad, high-precision 32-bit converters.
Balanced Pre Amplifier
DAC XP Signature’s pre amp is a fully balanced, dual mono design. Both DAC and pre amp are powered by separate, high current toroidal transformers. Balanced or line level output allows the connectivity of matching Cyrus power amplifiers to produce our Signature sound.
Sample Rate Handling
The DAC XP Signature is prepared for the wide range of sample rates available from today’s digital sources and beyond. Group 1 close tolerance performance is available for 32k, 44.1k, 48k, 64k, 88.2k, 96k, 128k, 176.4k, 192k source material.
The DAC XP Signature features the PSX-R port for connecting to the PSX-R₂ power supply. This instant sonic upgrade provides a separate, highly regulated off-board power supply.
The microprocessor controlled operating system in the DAC XP Signature allows extensive programming of many functions within the unit. Input naming, differing display readouts and input volume matching across all sources are just some of the possibilities.
At the heart of the DAC XP Signature is an upsampling digital to analogue converter which transforms any music into the highest possible 32-bit resolution. The fullness, depth and quality of the sound this produces is really impressive. The amplification process of the DAC XP Signature has also been painstakingly tuned to produce the trademark Cyrus sound – quality and purity guaranteed.
Our engineers have created our most stable circuit yet, making sure that there’s no jitter and your music is perfectly timed throughout. The built-in pre amp provides a full and clear sound output no matter what you’re listening to – using our best pre amp technology.
The chassis of the DAC XP Signature is divided into two entirely separate sections – an audiophile DAC and a fully balanced analogue pre amplifier. Keeping these processes completely separate means each can be given all of the power it needs on a separate circuit, avoiding any distortion or noise interference.
Tuned to produce the purest Cyrus sound, the DAC XP Signature has our most sophisticated re-clocking circuit to ensure no jitter.
The DAC is able to measure the precision of incoming digital sources and treat them accordingly. This means that high accuracy sources like the CD Xt Signature are digitally re-clocked by a close tolerance circuit with triple quartz references. Meanwhile for low accuracy sources the high quality DAC relaxes its re-clocking precision to ensure reliable playback.
