Pre XP

High quality preamplifier.

With 6 analogue inputs and the ability to play two sources at the same time in different parts of your home, the Pre XP is a highly versatile product.

Its preamplifier section uses the same techniques as those in our flagship DAC XP+ model, guaranteeing accurate and powerful amplification.

Many of the improved components and techniques which come about as we fine-tune our flagship products trickle down through our product range. So although the Pre XP is an entry level product, it holds many of the same individual components as our flagship DAC XP Signature.

The Pre XP has a zone 2 output, meaning that you can use it to play two different sources at the same time – it can transform the sound you enjoy not just in one room, but throughout your house.

Our advanced headphone circuitry means that no matter how you use this preamplifier, you can enjoy the clarity and detail Cyrus products are known for.

The Pre XP was developed to take advantage of the high audio quality produced by the Servo Evolution platform in our CD players. Because of this, the CD 8 SE₂ is a great partner for the Pre XP.

A strong addition to any system striving for pure hi-fi sound, this audiophile preamp can be paired with a PSX-R to give it a boost, or upgraded to a Pre XPd.
