New Cyrus Signature Series

DAC XP Signature Front Quartz 1MB

Cyrus have launched a new four-strong range, the components share many of the performance-enhancing modifications seen in the limited-edition Anniversary Series and have been painstakingly fine-tuned by Technical Director, Peter Bartlett. The Signature Series will represent Cyrus’s flagship product line up and comprises carefully upgraded versions of the X Series components to include the following: DAC X Signature (DAC); DAC XP Signature (DAC/preamp) and the Mono X 200 and 300 Signature (mono power amps). Further models are expected to join the range later in the year.

The line up in full:

DAC X Signature
The DAC X is a multi-input DAC designed to be highly accurate. New twin 32-bit stereo DACs, designed in dual-mono configuration, enable balanced transfer and the operational elements of the system, such as the digital control signals, are optically isolated from the twin mono DAC cards. The DAC X Signature also benefits from a custom designed ultra-low-noise torroidal power transformer; the power is cascaded through a number of sophisticated regulation stages and isolation techniques that ensure each section receives an unrestricted, noise-free, power supply.
DAC XP Signature
The DAC XP with its built-in preamp has seen an extensive improvement programme in the Signature Series. Its DAC chips have been upgraded to 32-bit resolution running in fully balanced operation and there have been numerous enhancements to the power supply including: upgraded power transformers; extensive new power filtering and improved smoothing on the DAC supply; new ‘short path’ analogue input switching stages plus an updated XLR output design, providing a purer balanced output circuit.
Mono X 200/300
Massively powerful, the Mono X amplifiers fit enormous reserves into their compact die-cast aluminium chassis: 200 and 300 watts respectively.  The Signature Series updates include a replacement input buffer op-amp with a higher slew rate and higher gain bandwidth.
