The Pre2 DAC Qx is a fabulous audiophile pre-amp, with six analogue inputs, four digital inputs, a USB input and a high quality headphone amp. It even has a built-in 'upgrade pathway', in that you can add-on Cyrus' excellent external power supply (the PSX-R2) to make the Pre2 DAC Qx sound even more amazing!
The USB input on this unit is a B-type USB socket - it works very well with a computer or laptop, but isn't compatible with iPods / iPhones etc.
Black or Silver
Cyrus Pre2 DAC Qx pre-amp / DAC
Audiophile pre-amp, with built-in top-end DAC!

This high performance audio pre-amplifier features 6 line and 5 digital inputs (including USB B-type) allowing you to connect a host of digital and analogue sources, including digital music files stored on your PC or Mac. You also get twin pre-amp outputs for bi-amping, an excellent headphone amp and a PSX-R socket to allow you to add on Cyrus' optional PSX-R2 power supply.

That's the boring spec out of the way - what makes this product so special is not what it does, but the way in which it does it. Because the Pre2DAC QX's circuitry is largely based on the 2500 DAC XP+, its performance is absolutely sensational. Put it together with the excellent Cyrus X Power or Stereo 200 power amp and you have a pre/power combo that will easily take on rivals of twice the twice. Audiophiles are used to paying 1000 for a top-end pre-amp and wouldn't then baulk at paying another 1000 on a top-end DAC to go with it. The Pre2DAC QX offers performance at that 2000+ level, but in just one compact unit.

From time to time we have mint, 'open box' Cyrus Pre2 DAC Qx, at a significant saving off SRP - click here for details
