i7-XR Integrated Amplifier

The i7-XR is one of the first wave of products, heralding the new XR series of Cyrus components. The familiar Cyrus precision die-cast case is the same, but everything else has changed. With ground-up engineering inside, an all-new phantom black paint finish, touch-sensitive controls and a higher resolution display that is customisable for brightness, contrast and polarity, the high-quality finish of XR makes a strong statement.

Power Amplifier

The wideband power amplifier of the i7-XR responds from DC to beyond 100kHz ensuring ruler-flat frequency response and keeping any undesirable phase shifts out of the audio band. With a generous, over-specified power supply the i7-XR power amplifier delivers music with a scale and authority that belies its 52W rating.

All new analogue preamplifier

Derived from the new high-end Pre-XR preamplifier, the i7-XR analogue preamp features relay input selection and a new high-performance gain stage. This short-path design makes the analogue preamplifier extremely transparent. With four analogue inputs and phono MM, the i7-XR will cover just about any system requirement for analogue connectivity.

XR digital performance

The DAC input stage of the i7-XR features a new 2nd generation version of our award-winning QXR DAC, but with an all-new high-speed analogue buffer stage. Seven digital filter alignment options are user adjustable to suit the taste of the listener. Input options include USB audio (to 384k sample rate) and DSD to DSD256, 2 x SPDIF digital and 2 x optical digital inputs.

Low noise phono stage for vinyl

Inheriting many design features of the award-winning Phono Signature, the phono stage in the i7-XR performs at a level way above its class. Featuring low background noise and high dynamic range, the phono stage is a perfect complement for a quality vinyl turntable source.

Roon Approved

The i7-XR is approved Roon Tested (using min firmware v1.6)

Being Roon Tested means that Cyrus and Roon have collaborated to ensure you have the best experience using Roon software and Cyrus equipment together, so you can just enjoy the music.

Hi-Fi Choice – Recommended

What Cyrus has done here is very impressive because this is still unquestionably a Cyrus amp.

It looks like one, feels like one, has the features we associate with the company and keeps that usefully compact form factor. Importantly, though, it does all these things better than before.

If you do not believe that different electronics possess differing skills when it comes to delivering time signatures and the intrinsic head nodding quality therein, I suspect an hour with this might change your mind. As fellow Brits Naim have gently moved their presentation, it leaves the i7 XR as the unchallenged speed king of this price segment.

“This very beautiful integrated amplifier symbolizes in its own way the progress which gives these solid-state models a previously unknown sonic enjoyment, to the exclusion of more ambitious class A models. Being able to offer us virtually the Best for less than 3000 euros now seems the prerogative of certain honest and talented designers who refuse this unhealthy equation “sound and musical quality must equal expensive”.”

“Everything indicates that, as the years are passing, the Hi-Fi market is undoubtedly changing and Cyrus, with feet firmly on the ground, stubbornly offers electronics in a gentle, more attractive design and a surprisingly favorable quality / price ratio. If the above resume raises your doubts, I strongly encourage you to listen to the title duo, i.e. CDt-XR and i7-XR, to see with your own eyes and ears that a lot of good sound is encompassed in these inconspicuous boxes.”

“Cyrus [i7-XR] may not have been able to compete in brute strength and weight with the test’s biggest pieces, but if we’re talking about dynamic tension and lightning attacks, the heavyweights suddenly felt unexpectedly sluggish…”
