Cyrus Pre₂ DAC
The Pre₂ DAC separates the pre amp into its own chassis and provides a dedicated power supply which means the pre amp can resolve more detail. Complete with a built-in DAC, the pre amp is compatible with a very wide range of sources such as CD players, streamers or your TV digital audio out.
The Pre₂ DAC delivers surprising audio performance and value because it is based on the advanced preamplifier circuitry from the DAC XP Signature; benefitting from a ‘trickle down’ of our most advanced technology.
The Pre₂ DAC offers a sonic step up in performance from our integrated amplifiers; achieved with its own power supply. The internal power supply provides isolation from the demands of other system elements, making available an additional level of dynamics and resolution.
The Pre₂ DAC features a high performance 24/192 DAC bringing optical and coaxial inputs and a driverless USB connection for plug and play connectivity to a PC or Laptop. This DAC can be further upgraded to ‘Qx’ specification bringing in upsampling DAC design from the DAC XP Signature.
Six analogue inputs, a high quality headphone amplifier, Zone 2 and pre amplifier output give the Pre₂ DAC flexibility for connecting a wide variety of audio devices. There is also a PSX-R port on the Pre₂ DAC allowing connectivity of the instant upgrade off-board power-supply.
The microprocessor controlled operating system in the Pre₂ 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.
