Cyrus 6 DAC QXR includes the new QXR DAC which improves the sound quality across all the digital inputs, increasing the possible input resolution to 32bit/ 768k (DSD 512) through the USB connection. Using a new ESS-based DAC, Cyrus introduced a new ‘re-clocking’ process across all the digital inputs, to reduce jitter and lower the noise floor, as well as allowing a much shallower filter slope than ever before, virtually eliminating phase interference in the audible band (an approach only previously possible with noisy FPGA DAC solutions).
"The 6 DAC QXR is an amazingly versatile integrated amplifier. Working with your analogue and digital sources, it’s a perfect entry point to the world of Cyrus ‘separates’. With a well-trodden upgrade path, it’s a product that will serve you exceptionally well now and for decades to come."
The 6 DAC QXR and its sibling the 82 DAC QXR are conceived to be the hubs to your entire audio system. The aim was usability, simplicity and refinement. Supplied with the latest iR14 remote control unit, it’s possible to connect almost every analogue and digital source through this highly competent unit.
Bi-wire outputs are included for superior transparency and dynamics from speakers with bi-wire terminals. The power supply is a high current design that uses two transformers to completely separate the digital control stages from the sensitive audio signals – an approach usually reserved for pre/power combination amplifiers.
