Cyrus Pre2 Dac QXR
Cyrus Pre2 DAC QXR Pre Amplifier + DAC offers total control of analogue and digital sources, now upgraded with QXR for additional function, enhanced performance. It provides the perfect balance and a superior performance but can be further upgraded effortlessly via a PSX R2 module.
A separate pre and power amplifier offers a new level of refinement for those wanting to build a reference-grade system. Running units with separate power supplies results in a cleaner signal as the inductive effects of the large currents in the power amplifier are isolated from the sensitive components of the pre-amplifier. The result is cleaner, more powerful and incredibly engaging. Rediscover your collection from a whole new performance perspective.
The preamplifier circuitry has its own power supply which provides separation from the demands of other components allowing an additional level of dynamics and resolution. If a PSX R2 is connected, you will hear a leap in performance as the preamp is fed with a highly regulated and ultra smooth DC feed. The audio uplift enables the close tolerance parts in the pre-amp to be entirely appreciated through the benefit of the more even supply.
Pre2 DAC separates the pre-amp into its own chassis and provides a discrete power supply to resolve more detail. QXR can process PCM audio up to 768k at a 32bit depth and ‘Native’ DSD 512 via the USB interface.
Advanced ESS DAC features asynchronous upsampling to deliver a supreme audio signal from connected digital sources including PC, DVD player or TV. Whatever the source. Audio from Toslink and digital S/PDIF inputs are ‘reclocked’ to reduce noisy ‘jitter’ for an intricate, more transparent audio signal to the pre-amp stage.
The Pre2 DAC is designed to be partnered with matching power amplifiers such as the X Power, Stereo 200 or Mono X 300 Signature. Build your system with a CDi or CDt and a Stream X Signature or Stream Xa for an exceptional music experience. Add a dedicated power supply such as the PSX R2 to further enhance the pre amp’s resolution.
Once again thanks for your help. I first visited Bartletts in 1993 and bought the Audiolab 8000a to equalise and compete with whatever the neighbours were playing at the time through the very thin walls of a Victorian Mansion Block. My Quad at the time although could musically could not compete. I had bought the Quad in 1984 at a place in Camden by Mornington Crescent, although I felt that I bought what" that particular shop "wanted to sell me rather than what I wanted.
Firstly delivery was estimated at 7-11 days - it was actually delivered by courier the next day (Free). Item was an excellent price and although it was advertised as used - it was absolutely mint. This is what internet buying should be like - well done all at Bartletts!
If I could give Bartlett's 10 stars I would....Quite superb service (a special mention for Simon here) - Buy from this supplier with complete confidence.
