Cyrus - Stream XP2 QX - Streamer & Preamp DAC
This model incorporates our streaming engine with a high-performance DAC and preamplifier. This source/preamp/DAC is the ideal cornerstone for building a modern hi-fi system. Match this versatile source/control model with a power amplifier to create possibly the highest quality and most compact HD hi-fi system available in the world today. Streaming, digital iPad/iPhone playback and changing, plus lots of auxiliary input options make this miniaturised modern unit a superb place to build a system. Options include a high-performance Qx DAC upgrade and/or our performance enhancing separate power supply PSX-R2 that will lift resolution higher still.
The high definition streaming system at the heart of the Stream XP₂ Qx is compatible with the highest resolution 24-bit music files and is designed to make sure nothing is added to or taken away from the artist’s recording.
This product also contains preamplifier and DAC technology. The Qx DAC process represents a huge upgrade to the way in which sound is processed by Cyrus systems. Whatever the resolution of the music going into the streamer, it is upsampled to 192kHz high definition.
Browse and enjoy your digital music collection with the Cadence app, viewing albums, artwork, internet radio stations and marking favourites with ease.
Cyrus has been developing streaming technology for over ten years. Our streamers decode the highest resolution 24-bit/192kHz files in high quality.
Our Research and Development team continually test and improve our products. New products are thoroughly tested for sound quality and performance, while all of our individual components are regularly tested against alternatives. This process ensures that our products give you the trademark Cyrus tuning we know you love.
From the beginning of the development of our streaming project in 2003, this is the model we dreamt of launching. Using our most advanced streaming technology along with our superb Qx DAC, the Stream XP₂ Qx will make your music come alive!
And it’s not just your own music which this streamer will enable you to enjoy in higher definition. If you love radio, you’ll love TuneIn radio.
