Product Information

Recognized by thirty years of awards and accolades, Cyrus consistently pushes the boundaries of audio technology. They have tirelessly worked towards the ultimate hi-fi system, which will reproduce the sound and feeling of a live performance without any interference or loss of detail.

The Cyrus Pre2 DAC separates the preamp into its own chassis and provides a dedicated power supply which means the preamp can resolve more detail. Complete with a built-in DAC, the preamp is compatible with a very wide range of sources such as CD players, streamers, or your TV digital audio out.

The Cyrus Pre2 DAC is designed to be partnered with one of the matching power amplifiers such as the X Power or Stereo 200. Add a dedicated power supply such as the PSX-R2 to further enhance the preamp’s resolution.

Trickle Down Advanced Technology

The Cyrus 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 the most advanced technology.

Pre Amplifier

The Pre2 DAC offers a sonic step up in performance from Cyrus' integrated amplifiers. This is achieved because the preamplifier circuitry has 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.

Integrated DAC

The Pre2 DAC features a high-performance 24/192 DAC bringing optical and coaxial inputs and a driverless USB connection allowing 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.

Essential Connectivity

Six analog inputs, a high-quality headphone amplifier, Zone 2, and preamplifier 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.

Advanced Setup

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.
