Including all the features of the Cyrus 6a, the versatile 6 DAC model adds five digital inputs including a USB port. This means that you can play music directly from your laptop, PC or MAC. Simply connect your computer via the USB socket on the amplifier and you can enjoy the convenience of great sounding music directly from your computer music library. The new CD T and or Stream X are the perfect systems partners.

Technical Specifications

The talented 6 DAC amplifier is part of Cyrus� upgradeable amplifier platform that has been created so that we can invest comprehensively in the core platform and make several versions from this shared asset. The 6 DAC benefits from all of the original investment that went into the top Cyrus 8 Qx DAC model albeit the 6 DAC is fitted with our 2 x 40 Watt power amplifier, a quality DAC and 5 digital inputs.

The foundation of the new Cyrus amplifier platform is a revised power supply that takes advantage of the latest components that have only recently become available, allowing the 6 DAC to deliver remarkable performance for such an affordable amplifier. The new power supply design provides peak power output (190W peak power into a 1 Ohm load) allowing the resulting performance to compete favourably with amplifiers of double its conservatively rated 40W RMS specifications. The front panel boasts a high quality LCD display that shows volume, the input selected and a set-up menu that allows you to setup your amplifier to work exactly the way that suits you.

The power supply is unusually sophisticated for an integrated amplifier because it boasts two transformers designed to separately feed �digital� and �analogue� sections. The first transformer feeds some digital sections and controls our low powers standby feature that enables the amplifier to consume less than one Watt while in standby mode. The second transformer supplies the sensitive low level signals and power sections. Further sub regulation ensures each part of the amplifier that feeds the speakers is made from very clean supplies that contribute to this amplifiers fine performance. In addition this dual transformer arrangement allows us to offer useful �green� energy savings without compromising the audio circuitry.

Sharing core technology with the higher power models means the Cyrus 6 DAC is sonically voiced to match with the wide range of Cyrus power amps to allow customers to add stereo or Mono amps for higher performance in the future. This modular approach will extend the life of your investment and add many options for system improvement not available in less well conceived product ranges.

In the future, the 6 DAC owner can take advantage of a wide range of upgrade options allowing them to expand the performance in affordable stages.

Upgrade options include:

Choose more power and upgrade to Cyrus 8 DAC
This increases power to 2 x 70 watts and also a further option to add a PSX-R power supply for even better sound.

Add a higher quality 192 24 bit DAC
The DAC card in the Cyrus 8 DAC is based around a quality Digital to Analogue Converter more usually found in digital devices several times the price of the 8 DAC. However Cyrus make a more advanced DAC option called the Qx card that can further upgrade all connected digital sources. This additional Qx model has advanced features such as re-clocking and up-sampling that will make all your digital sources sound very special indeed.

Preamp output / bi-amping
Use the preamp section with one of the wide range of Cyrus power amps. They range from the popular 8 Power through to the breathtaking Mono X300 amps. Because they are designed with the same sonic tuning your Cyrus 6 DAC will match perfectly with an additional power amp. Adding a more powerful power amp such as the X-Power will add dynamics and solidity to the sound of your system. If your speakers support dual or bi-wiring inputs, adding another power amp will sound better because you can drive the base and treble speakers separately. (With a 6 DAC the new amp would drive the bass speakers). Your retailer can demonstrate this but in effect you are allowing each section of the speaker to work with its own �engine� and this helps things sound much clearer. Please check your speakers support this option.
