computer to the USB input 1@.
NOTE: The USB Audio input is configured for USB slave operation and is not
suitable for connection of USB drives or other flash media.
When not in use for a Zone 2 system, the dual-purpose output Zone 2/Tape
may be used to connect a tape recorder for recording purposes. To set up a
tape recording loop, connect a phono cable from the ‘Input’ or ‘Record’
sockets of the tape deck to the Zone 2 Output d sockets.
NOTE: This section assumes that the ‘Play’ or ‘Line Out’ sockets of the
tape/disc recorder have already been connected to Input 6 for playback
purposes.
Bi-amping
The twin pre-amplifier outputs may be used in conjunction with added power
amplifier(s) to significantly upgrade your loudspeaker system through Biamping. The Cyrus range of power amplifiers is recommended for this
application.
NOTE: A bi-amp system can only be set up with speakers that have bi-wire
connections (separate bass and treble connections).
Connecting power amplifiers:
Two power amplifiers will be required to partner a Cyrus Pre XPd preamplifier in a bi-amplified system.
Both stereo and high power monobloc Cyrus power amplifiers are available to
partner your amplifier.
NOTE:- Refer to Fig. 5 for the wiring plans of a bi-amplified system. Take care
to connect each of the amplifier output channels to the correct power amplifier
and loudspeaker.
The Qx Digital Input Upgrade
The Cyrus Qx high-end DAC module may also be fitted internally to
significantly improve the sound quality performance of digital sources
connected to your system.
Amplifiers with a Qx module fitted will have a Qx badge on the front fascia
and a Qx logo will be displayed briefly after the product name, when switching
on.
If your amplifier has the Qx upgrade fitted, digital input connections are made
in exactly the same way as described above.
Connecting Headphones
The headphones socket 1& is a standard 3.5mm stereo jack socket for
connection to a pair of headphones. Headphones may be permanently
connected to the amplifier and selected when required with the front panel
switch.
Connecting a Power Amplifier/Speakers
The Cyrus Pre XPd requires an external power amplifier to drive the system
loudspeakers. To connect the power amplifier, connect a phono interconnect
from one set of the dual Pre Out sockets (b or c) to the Inputs of the power
amplifier. Ensure left and right channels are correctly connected. The
speakers connect to the power amplifier. The power amplifier handbook will
include instructions for connection of the speakers.
Using the Zone 2 output
Your product includes a Zone 2 pre-amp output that can be used by a
system in a second room. You can then extend the sound from the sources in
your main system to a second zone. To use the Zone 2 output you will need a
set of long interconnects and an amplifier with loudspeakers in the second
zone that has its own volume control. Typically the second zone system
would be the auxiliary input of an MP3 player dock or could even be another
integrated amplifier with full size separate loudspeakers.
Setting up Zone 2 with powered speakers
To set up Zone 2, connect the long phono cables to the Zone 2 output d
and route them to the line inputs of the powered speakers in Zone 2.
Setting up Zone 2 with a second amplifier
To set up Zone 2 with a separate amplifier, connect the long phono cables to
the Zone 2 output d and route them to one of the line inputs of the amplifier in
Zone 2. Connect the Zone 2 speakers to the Zone 2 amplifier.
NOTE: Amplifiers for Zone 2 use must include a volume control.

User Instructions
Connecting a Cyrus Surround Sound decoder
If your system includes a Cyrus multi-channel surround sound decoder, it may
be connected through your stereo amplifier to share the main front speakers
of your system.
In this case, connect a stereo phono interconnect from the front channel
outputs of the surround decoder to one of the Analogue Inputs of the
amplifier. For this system to function correctly both the amplifier and the Cyrus
surround decoder must be included in an MC-BUS connection loop and the
‘Cyrus AV’ input name must be set for the input used (see ‘MC-BUS’ section
and ‘Input names’ in the ‘Setup menu’ section).
When set up in this way, the amplifier will automatically check for the
presence of the decoder when the ‘Cyrus AV’ input is selected, then lock its
volume setting to an appropriate level.
Connecting a Surround Sound decoder (other brand)
If your system includes a multi-channel surround sound decoder (but not a
Cyrus model), it may be connected through your amplifier to drive the front
channel speakers.
In this case, connect a stereo phono interconnect from the front channel
outputs of the surround decoder to one of the Analogue Inputs of the
amplifier. For this system to function correctly, the ‘AV Direct’ input name
must be set for the input used (see ‘Input names’ in the ‘Setup menu’ section).
When set up in this way, the amplifier will automatically lock its volume setting
to a fixed level to match the output of the surround decoder.
CAUTION: The ‘AV Direct’ input name should only be used for surround
decoders that include a volume control, as the volume control of your
amplifier will be fixed at a very high level.
MC-BUS System (Refer to fig 4)
Connecting the MC-BUS sockets a in an MC-BUS system provides unified
system control. An MC-BUS loop is established by connecting single phono
cables from the MC-BUS output of one unit to the MC-BUS input of another in
a daisy-chain. Complete the loop by returning the MC-BUS output of the final
component to the MC-BUS input of the first.
With MC-BUS connection established you can control the power function of
the entire system from the front panel or remote control. Selecting 'CD' from
the front panel will switch on the amplifier, the Cyrus power amplifier and a
Cyrus CD player. When the amplifier is set to Standby, the entire system will
also switch off.
When a Cyrus Surround Processor is included in the MC-BUS loop, setting of
the volume calibration level will take place automatically when the ‘Cyrus AV’
input is selected. Refer to the handbook for the Surround Processor for further
details.
External Power Supply - PSX-R
The PSX-R is a unique DC power supply which will upgrade the sonic
performance of your amplifier. When an amplifier / PSX-R combination is
installed, analogue and signal related sections of the amplifier are powered
from this clean, stable power source while other requirements are supplied
internally. This ensures complete isolation of control circuits and sensitive
analogue sections reducing AC mains-borne noise and power supply ripple.
To connect the PSX-R to the amplifier, disconnect both components from the
mains, then plug the connector on the umbilical cord of the PSX-R into the
Multi-Pole socket on the rear of the amplifier (1! Fig.1). You will need a mains
supply for both units.
NOTE: Connection of a PSX-R is detected automatically by the amplifier, so
no internal adjustments are required.

OPERATION WITH THE AVRS7.2 REMOTE CONTROL
Your amplifier is supplied with the Cyrus AVRS7.2 remote control which will
also control Cyrus CD players, DVD players, tuners and surround sound
decoders.
System select keys
Commands may be sent to different Cyrus system components by selecting
the appropriate system select key on the handset. These keys are marked
CD, TU/DAB, AV, AV-S and AV SETUP. The CD, TU/DAB, AV, AV-S keys
will flash when any command is transmitted to show which type of product is
under control. Commands to a Surround Decoder from the AV SETUP system
will flash the AV-S indicator.
• Pressing CD will send commands to a Cyrus CD player. This key will also
switch on the amplifier and select an input named CD.
• Pressing TU/DAB will send commands to DAB radios or FM Tuners. This
key will also switch on a DAB radio or FM Tuner and select an input
named Tuner. To change between DAB or FM operation, hold down the
TU/DAB key for 3 seconds until the light changes colour. The key will
light green when set for DAB commands or red when set for FM tuner
commands. NOTE:- The FM band of a DAB radio is not selected in this
way, the BAND key is used for this purpose.
• Pressing AV will send commands to a DVD player. This key will also
switch on a DVD player and select an input named AV, Cyrus AV, AV
Direct, or DVD on the amplifier.
The amplifier will respond to the volume, balance, mute and input keys when
any of the above systems are selected. In the above examples, direct access
input select will only function when these inputs have been named using the
amplifier setup menu.
