In many products the Cyrus PSX-R2 works in tandem with the built-in power supply to allow each part of the unit to be powered separately, thereby removing any cross contamination from (for example) the motors in a Cyrus CD player.
By providing an extremely smooth and stable DC feed, the PSX-R2 helps the partnered component to achieve its full potential. This is an improved version of the long serving and cumulatively the biggest selling Cyrus model ever, the PSX-R. It has proven to be a wonderful addition to many system owners and continues to convince Cyrus owners to invest in a sophisticated power supply to fully appreciate the electronics they already own.
So how does it work?
The unit works by providing a regulated DC power feed free of negative artefacts that are present in all domestic mains supplies.
Connecting a PSX-R2 enables the high grade components in the partnering component to perform to their full potential. This is one of our most popular upgrades and is highly recommended. The PSX-R2 provides new depth and detail to the sound output of partnering products by providing extremely low noise power to the circuits within the unit. Low noise high gain amplifiers connected in a propriety design filter out any unwanted noise and provide remarkable benefits in sound quality. If you consider that amplifiers and other audio electronics work by making copies of the incoming signal, it is obvious that the copy will sound better because if DC voltage lines are cleaner. A stable, strong and separated power supply can provide huge sound quality benefits for a hi-fi system.
By powering part of the workings of a Cyrus unit, the PSX-R2 lessens the strain on its internal power supply. This separation of power makes the unit work more efficiently, and creates a stronger and more detailed sound. A fully regulated 300W DC power supply, the PSX-R2 uses intelligent connectivity which automatically adjusts its output parameters to suit the partnering Cyrus component. Connection to a partnering Cyrus unit is made through a high quality XLR cable. In all instances this audiophile power supply can be added into the system without any changes to the existing components.
What is improved over the PSX-R Mk 1?
Our flagship Anniversary system developed to celebrate our 30 years in hi-fi, incorporated many enhancements that included improvements to both AC and DC lines in the PSX-R. These enhancements have been transferred into the PSX-R2 and have improved the unit’s ability when partnered with our more recent amplifiers that are capable of greater resolution today not possible ten years ago.
