X Power

X Power is high quality amplifier, with switchable stereo (100 Watts per channel) or mono (181 Watts per channel) modes providing huge amounts of power. The X Power uses an oversized power supply, which allows it to be incredibly dynamic and responsive to even the most challenging inputs.

 
Where to Buy

Switchable Stereo/Mono

Running as a stereo amplifier, X Power outputs 100 Watts per channel but with a simple flick of a switch, it turns into a 181 Watts per channel mono power amplifier, providing improved sound quality and allowing the use of harder to drive loudspeakers.

Music Sense

The X Power features music sense mode. When set to low power standby the X Power detects an incoming signal and automatically and noiselessly switches on the amplifier ready for use. If there is no music detected for an extended period of time it will revert to standby mode.

Upgradability

The X Power includes a port for connecting the PSX-R₂. The addition of this highly regulated off-board power supply not only improves sound quality but increases output power, especially in mono operation.

High Current Design

The X Power includes an expansive and highly adaptive power supply which provides considerable dynamic power in excess of the rated RMS figure, essential to driving difficult loads.

System Scalability

The X Power can be used in multiple scenarios. Most typical would be in a Pre / Power system with Pre₂ DAC or Stream XP₂. Also compatible with integrated amplifiers in bi-amped stereo configuration. The fixed gain structure enables compatibility with any Cyrus amplifier.

Overview

X Power

This high quality amplifier is a great example of our upgrade philosophy, providing you with excellent stereo amplification as well as the opportunity to improve the sound in the future by adding a second X Power.

The X Power uses an oversized power supply, which allows it to be incredibly dynamic and responsive to even the most challenging inputs. These huge power reserves will be channelled into your music whether being used in stereo or mono mode.

To make sure all of that power is put to good use, every single component - from the die cast Cyrus chassis down to each power filter, has been selected through a careful testing process to find the combination which provides our trademark sound quality.

The PSX-R2 takes the X Power to another level of power amplification. By powering the audio output stages and separating control and audio signal power supplies the PSX-R2 boosts the finesse of the X Power, translating into even smoother treble and mid-range performance and a faster weightier bass.

With a PSX-R2, an X Power can provide up to 120 watts (stereo) or 240 watts (mono) per channel (into 4Ω).
