Pre2 DAC QXR Preamplifier


Notify me when back in stock

The Cyrus Audio Pre2 DAC QXR is a standard Pre2DAC 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. Using a new ESS-based DAC, we have also introduced a new ‘re-clocking’ process across all the digital inputs, to reduce jitter and lower the noise floor, as well as allowing a much shallower filter slope than ever before, virtually eliminating phase interference in the audible band (an approach only previously possible with noisy FPGA DAC solutions).

The Pre2 DAC QXR is designed to be partnered with one of our matching power amplifiers such as the X Power, Stereo 200 or Mono X 300 Signature. Build your system with a CDi or CDt and Stream Xa for an exceptional music experience. Add a dedicated power supply such as the PSX Rto further enhance the pre amp’s resolution.
