Cyrus 8? DAC overview


Manufacturers Product Description

The 8? DAC is our most flexible integrated amplifier. A high quality and scalable design provides an impressive 88 Watts per channel, and includes six analogue inputs which you can individually name from a list of options in the set up wizard. Also included is a great headphone facility and twin speaker output for bi-wiring. Advanced TechnologyThe 8? DAC delivers surprising audio performance and value because it is based on the advanced preamplifier circuitry from the DAC XP Signature; benefiting from a 'trickle down' of our most advanced technology. Integrated AmplifierThe bi-wire output of the 8? DAC gives a full 88 Watts into 6 ohms. The power supply is a high current design that uses two transformers to completely separate the digital control stages from the sensitive audio signals. Integrated DACThe 8? DAC features a high performance 24/192 DAC with optical and coaxial inputs and a driver less USB connection for plug and play connectivity to a PC or laptop. Upgrade to 'Qx' specification for upsampling DAC design from the DAC XP Signature.. Essential ConnectivitySix analogue inputs, a high quality headphone amplifier, Zone 2 and pre amplifier outputs give the 8? DAC flexibility for connecting a wide variety of audio devices. There is also a PSX-R port on the 8? DAC allowing connectivity of the instant upgrade off-board power supply. Advanced SetupThe microprocessor controlled operating system in the 8? DAC allows extensive programming of many functions within the unit. Input naming, differing display readouts and input volume matching across all sources are just some of the possibilities.
