8XP / 8a
The 8XP & 8a integrated amplifiers were based on the the Digital series of amplifiers. The ‘XP’ and ‘a’ versions are analogue amplifiers unlike the ‘d’ versions that have the onboard DAC. Delivering a true 70W+70W RMS power into 8 ohms, no compromises had been made elsewhere in the amplifier. Like other Cyrus amplifiers they have twin speaker outputs for the ability to bi-wire your speakers.
Both amplifiers are equipped with Pre-amp out for bi-amping, intuitive user interface via graphic LCD display. Line inputs plus Zone 2 output or tape monitor, Cyrus MC-BUS to incorporate it into your Cyrus AV system, along with PSX-R upgradeability. Factory upgrades were available to upgrade to full digital specifications.
