Classic AMP

The Classic AMP is the latest update to an integrated amplifier that has been part of the Cyrus product range for over a decade.

This integrated amplifier provides a significant step up in performance from previous versions by using everything that we learnt when developing the fantastic XR Series, but retaining the familiar design of the Classic series. The circuit design has been completely re-designed and the majority of the internal components have been upgraded by the Cyrus R&D team, which has resulted in sound improvements that will help the Classic series retain a loyal fan base for years to come.

The power amplifier delivers 91W per channel into 6Ω. The wideband design responds from D.C. to beyond 50kHz to ensure a flat frequency response and minimal phase shift through the audio band.

The analogue preamp features relay input selection for the five analogue inputs and a precision gain control for volume. The design is intentionally wide bandwidth.

The power supply includes a 304VA toroidal power transformer delivering power to a high capacity power supply reserve. The preamplifier power supply is electrically separated from the power amplifier and driven from its own transformer winding. Digital control circuits are assigned a separate mains power supply, completely isolated from the signal circuitry.

The Classic AMP includes a port for the PSX-R power supply. Power from the PSX-R is routed internally to the analogue stages of the preamplifier to provide a more stable, low-noise power supply for the analogue preamp and post-DAC stages of the D/A converter.

Ed Selley from AV Forums has reviewed the Classic AMP. “The Classic Amp absolutely flies along, grabbing you, engaging you and making you a participant rather than a spectator.”

“The Classic AMP convinces at the decisive point: the sound quality. Its light-footed, thus relaxed, pace clearly sets it apart from the usual, because the Cyrus demonstrates a dexterity in handling all sounds. Listening to music with this amplifier is a real pleasure.”

Hi-Fi Class (Polish)

“Compared to the previous version, the Classic AMP has gained in efficiency and you can hear it in its sound! Full frequency spectrum is reproduced with a perceptible reserve of power and ease with regard to dynamic contrast. The music is reproduced lively and impressively but at the same time without exaggeration, especially in the treble range.”

“The purity of the sound, its cohesion and differentiation are striking”

“What an incredibly fine amplifier this is! Next to other amps, the Cyrus does not sound the most impressive on first hearing, but after a while the music gets under your skin. It is an addictive machine.”

“…Cyrus products always sound great! And they sound first class, as the company once again impressively proves with the Classic AMP. All resources are invested in the right place: the sound. Powerful and subtle at the same time, the Classic AMP presents the honest sound that we know and love from Cyrus.”

“The Classic Amp has the drive typical of Cyrus and yet sounds refined. It fills its stable sound images with authentic colours. The show-off factor is low, improving the price/performance ratio, also because of the integrated phono stage and the digital section. I would consider it at any time if I were looking for one!”

“Cyrus streamlines its portfolio and gives birth to the Classic AMP, a complete offering with MM phono stage, DAC, headphone amp with a remarkable punch. In terms of sound, it’s a real Cyrus but made even better. Rhythmic, compact, fast and highly musical. This compact product is and remains more than ever a “stunner” and sounds bigger, more spacious and better than what its modest dimensions would suggest. Very colourful, rhythmic and musical, it even becomes a highlight of its price class.”
