Stereo 200

Those in the know about audiophile components recognise quality when they hear it. The Cyrus Stereo 200 is a rare beast indeed – lauded by many as one of the finest power amplifiers of its generation, the Stereo 200 is remarkable in its poise, absolute grip and astonishing dynamic range. Based on our in-house developed third generation Hybrid Class-D amplification, it is efficiently commanding, yet gloriously musical.

You have to hear this amplifier to believe it.

Where to buy

A true marvel of Hi-Fi engineering, the Stereo 200 is exceptional in it’s detail, resolution and ability to cope with the very hardest loudspeaker loads.


 

Design of the Stereo 200

Delivering a herculean 2 x 203 Watts into 6Ω from the half width Cyrus die-cast aluminium chassis, this high-quality power amp provides enormous continuous power and superb dynamics.

Pin-point instrument positioning, beautiful balancing and crystal clarity are all signatures of this landmark amplifier.

 

Cyrus’ Stereo 200 power amplifier is the first hybrid power amplifier to be launched from this new platform. By “hybrid” we mean it incorporates a traditional Cyrus power supply design with a low noise toroidal transformer, married with a new, high power, class D output device. This combination provides enormous continuous power and superb dynamics.

I’ve heard my fair share of Cyrus amplifiers in my time, and this one is at least up there with the best of them. But more than that, the Cyrus 200 is an important amplifier, because it shows what Class D can do without costing a small fortune.

The Stereo 200 more than held its own against, and in some ways bettered the performance of the Parasound Halo A 31 and the NAD M27, which I consider to be two of the finest entry-level, high-end amplifiers available.
