Cyrus 8-2 DAC QXR



Integrated Amplifier 2x88Watt with DA Converter


The 8-2 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 Technology

The 8-2 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 Amplifier

The bi-wire output of the 8-2 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 DAC

The 8-2 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 ‘QxR’ specification for upsampling DAC design from the DAC XP Signature.

Essential Connectivity

Six analogue inputs, a high quality headphone amplifier, Zone 2 and pre amplifier outputs give the 8-2 DAC flexibility for connecting a wide variety of audio devices. There is also a PSX-R port on the 8-2 DAC allowing connectivity of the instant upgrade off-board power supply.

Advanced Setup

The microprocessor controlled operating system in the 8-2 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.
