Cyrus pre amps and DACs use painstakingly selected components to switch inputs and control the system volume. These engineering choices make a substantial difference to the system sound. Our separates models have increasingly sophisticated methods of switching and controlling signals and are all available with highly tuned DACs to enhance your connected digital sources including CD, streaming, and AV inputs such as your TV.
By powering the pre amp and power amp sections separately, with their own power supplies, the circuitry will resolve more. Because amplifiers do not make the digital sound signal magically bigger, they make a bigger copy of the incoming signal; the quality of the power they use to make the copy will, to a large extent, dictate the quality of the resulting sound.
The quality of the power supply fed to the digital circuitry, like a DAC, is equally important. In our integrated amplifiers we employ a number of regulated supplies so each circuit suffers minimal influence from its siblings. For ultimate performance we make a separate power supply called PSX- R₂ that lifts performance into another league. By refining the DC power fed to the electronics you have already purchased, PSX-R₂ will deliver instant improvements to all elements of your systems sonic performance. Cyrus power supplies are not magic exactly, but they are clever.
Our fully integrated Lyric system also enjoys audiophile components that enable the pre amp section to transfer audio signals with maximum care.
