Cyrus 8DAC QXR integrated amplifier includes the latest QXR hi-res DAC. This new board improves the sound quality across all the digital inputs and increases the possible input resolution to 32bit/ 768k (DSD 512) through the USB connection.


Classic series products incorporate the trademark Cyrus Audio half chassis design. Initially challenged by some hifi enthusiasts, the smaller size is increasingly popular as space and aesthetics have become important considerations for many customers. Learn more about the design process, material selection and novel engineering solutions of the Classic series.



The Cyrus 8DAC QXR integrated amp is conceived to be the hub of 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.

The high quality bi-wire output of the 8DAC QXR  delivers 88 continuous watts into 6 ohms – enough to drive even the most demanding loudspeaker loads. To ensure the highest standards of quality, 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. The 8DAC QXR also includes a great sounding headphone amplifier for those late night listening sessions.

By using a new ESS-based DAC, the upgrade has also introduced a new ‘re-clocking’ process across all the digital inputs, to reduce jitter and lower the noise floor. Incorporating a much shallower filter slope than ever before, QXR virtually eliminates phase interference in the audible band (an approach only previously possible with noisy FPGA DAC solutions)

The 8₂ DAC QXR sounds clear, dynamic and musical, offering power and control that allows it to drive even demanding sound transducers and provide rich volumes without losing its agility and transparency.”
