Cyrus PRE₂ DAC QXR Preamplifier


Notify me when back in stock

Cyrus Pre2 DAC QXR is the first step on the pre-amplifier ladder. Moving to a separate pre-amplifier and power amplifier offers another level of refinement to enthusiasts looking to upgrade from an integrated amplifier or those looking to build a reference-grade system.

A two-box setup enables the pre and power amplifiers to be run by separate power supplies resulting in a cleaner signal as the inductive effects of the large currents in the power amplifier are isolated from the sensitive components of the pre-amplifier.

The experience is cleaner, more powerful and incredibly engaging. You will rediscover your collection with a whole new perspective on the performance. 

Cyrus Audio Pre2 DAC QXR is a standard PreDAC with the new QXR digital card pre-installed. This new card improves the sound quality across all the digital inputs, increasing the possible input resolution to 32bit/ 768k (DSD 512) through the USB connection.

A new re-clocking process is included across all the digital inputs to reduce jitter and lower the noise floor using a new ESS-based DAC.

Pairing the Pre2 with one of the matching power amplifiers, such as the X Power, Stereo 200 or Mono X 300 Signature. Build your system with a CDi or CDt for an exceptional music experience. To enhance the performance even further, add a dedicated power supply such as the PSX R2.
