Famous 30 year old brand name combined with "Made in UK" quality and value for less than the price of an unknown brand produced in a third world country, what's not to like?
The Cyrus 6 XP stereo integrated amplifier delivers 40 watts per channel and includes six analogue inputs. A great headphone facility and twin speaker output for bi-wiring ensure it will fit into your life. Our research & development process means that advancements made as we fine tune our best amplifiers trickle down to all of the products in that line. So even though the Cyrus 6 XP is our entry level amplifier, it boasts many of the same expert components and engineering techniques as our most advanced Cyrus 8 XPd Qx.
The Cyrus 6 XP allows you to play two sources at the same time - meaning you could be listening to a CD in one room, while somebody uses the amp to watch a film in another. Our entry level amplifier boasts many of the sound enhancing features found in our best amplifiers, including precision circuitry, advanced star earthing techniques and our unique power supply design. The powerful on-board software system allows the customization of many features including individual input sensitivity matching and multiple display modes. A strong addition to any system striving for pure hi-fi sound, the Cyrus 6 XP works well with the CD 6 SE2; it can be upgraded to a Cyrus 8 XP when you're ready for a bigger, clearer sound.
Technical Information As with all of our products, the Cyrus 6 XP can be connected to our other systems via our unique MC-BUS connectivity. Inputs – 6 analogue Power - 130VA transformer Outputs – Zone 2, preamp out, headphone, bi-wire loudspeakers Dimensions (H x W x D) – 73 x 215 x 360 mm
A striking visual feature of any Cyrus system is the aesthetic lines of the half width chassis. Created by pressure die-casting aluminium, the beauty of this monolithic classic is more than skin deep.
The hand finished casework is an integral part of the products’ sound. Cyrus has invested in sophisticated die-cast tooling to create an electronically shielded and mechanically vibration free environment for the sensitive audio circuits which are hung inside the inverted chassis.
Microphonic interference can occur when certain components transform mechanical vibration into unwanted electrical noise if the chassis is excited. The Cyrus chassis has been designed to provide an enclosure that is immune from a wide range of frequencies.
Inside a common steel chassis, components such as transformers radiate electromagnetic fields which induce unwanted electric currents and secondary magnetic fields within the ferrous box, thereby adversely affecting other components in the same enclosure. In the Cyrus die-cast chassis our choice of non-ferrous aluminium means this effect is avoided.
The Cyrus chassis:
*A solid foundation used to build all classic models.
*Die-cast by injecting molten aluminium under extreme pressure gives a dense rigid case to build upon.
*The non-magnetic, thermally efficient construction gives a stable mechanical and electrical platform.
*Components are suspended upside down from the casting greatly reducing any vibration issues.
*Manufactured in Husqvarna Sweden - each casting is individually hand finished before painting in England.
*Versatile, bespoke design gives a uniquely recognisable Cyrus footprint.
The benefit of using the same chassis structure across all products is a level of consistency in performance. It also allows customers with older units to have the internals upgraded/updated to the latest design without the trouble and expense of selling the entire system and starting again.
This upgradeable design concept has been created by Cyrus to provide the widest possible choice and the longest useful life for our products. We want to help you to build a better music experience from the outset.
