Cyrus Pre2 DAC
The Pre2 DAC offers a substantial step up in audio performance over the integrated amplifiers. This is achieved because the preamplifier circuitry dealing with the delicate audio signals has its own power supply. This internal power supply provides isolation from the demands of other system elements, making available an additional level of dynamics and resolution.
The digital section also sounds better for the same reasons, especially when used with the optional Qx card which ensures the audio quality is maximised. The Pre2 DAC includes a carefully designed top quality digital section built into the preamplifier with a Burr Brown 24 bit/192k DAC and a carefully designed power supply. The 5 digital inputs enable the amplifier to connect and clearly improve the sound of connected digital sources including; your Computer, DVD player and TV for example.
This pre-amplifier when partnered with an X Power or Stereo 200 power amplifier forms a formidable combination. Further improvements can be made by the addition of a PSX-R2 power supply that will again improve the resolution of your music.
