Cyrus Audio PSU-XR Intelligent Power Supply Released

Cyrus Audio's PSU-XR microprocessor-equipped power supply is the British brand's smartest yet. 

The PSU-XR is the first power supply from Cyrus to have its own built-in microprocessor, enabling it to talk to the product it is connected to. Designed to work with current XR products, such as the CDi-XR and i9-XR, as well as upcoming products, such as the BluOS streamer, we're told it should provide the best configuration of power sources demanded by the host product.

Cyrus states that noise has been reduced wherever possible, as with every product in the XR series. Output voltages from the PSU-XR are all digitally controlled; therefore, they are extremely stable and virtually noise-free.

Ceri Williamson, Head of R&D at Cyrus Audio, told StereoNET:

The PSU-XR is our best-performing power supply, capable of providing up to 60% more power than the award-winning PSX-R2 and due to its revolutionary design, is up to 50% more efficient.

Cyrus PSU-XR

The Cyrus Audio PSU-XR — alongside the rest of the XR line-up — will be demonstrated in the UK at this year's Bristol Hi-Fi show from Friday, 24th – Sunday, 26th February 2023.

Cyrus PSU-XR

The PSU-XR is available now, priced at £2,395/ €2,895 in the UK and Europe. Local pricing has not yet been confirmed.

applause awards

Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.

Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.

The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
