Q Power

Stereo power amplifier rated at 50W/8ohm, 30A pk-pk. Amplifier features signal-sensing auto-start for AV and multi-room remote use. Chain output facility allows bi/tri-amping and for large multi-amp zones. High-speed overload and thermal protection circuits for confidence in all installations

The Cyrus Q-Power is an exceptionally versatile power amplifier with outstanding performance. In an system with a Quattro the Q-Power delivers a full 50W/Ch with a level of performance which cannot be achieved by other single box ‘lifestyle’ systems. With the addition of the Multi-room upgrade to the Quattro, further Q-Power amplifiers may be added to distribute high quality sound around the home at the touch of a button.

Offering outstanding performance, the Q-Power may be used to upgrade a Cyrus system for bi-amplification of loudspeakers. The “Chaining” feature of the Q-Power facilitates biamping or tri-amping a fuller installation.

For the AV enthusiast, the Cyrus Q-Power is the ideal choice to drive the surround loudspeakers in a Home Theatre system. A set of three Q-Powers may be used to provide amplification for all channels where 6 x 50W will meet the requirements of the system.

The quality lightweight die-cast enclosure of Cyrus Q-Power has a myriad of advantages both electrically and mechanically. The integrated heatsink design enhances the thermal efficiency allowing higher performance to size ratio. Additionally, the non-resonant nature of the alloy minimises microphonic effects, while its non-ferrous composition provides an effective shield from external electro-magnetic disturbances. This also eliminates coupling of the power transformer stray magnetic fields to the sensitive audio circuitry.
