The Cyrus X-Power is a new two x 70W design developed to provide a matching power amp for the Pre Xvs and DAC XP. A single X Power with a pre-amp makes an ideal high quality pre/power system. Alternatively two could be used either bi-amped in stereo or used in mono providing 130W each. It will depend on your loudspeakers and personal taste whether you prefer the sound of a pair in mono or stereo configuration. Generally, bi-amping your speakers (a pair in stereo, one for bass and one for treble) will make them sound more detailed; however with more demanding speakers the extra power of two amps in mono will sound more dynamic. Try it and see if you prefer the subtlety of two amps in stereo or the dynamic power benefits of two in mono. Whatever you decide, the performance is outstanding and you may even end up planning to use four. You can upgrade the amps performance even further with the PSX-R providing even better resolution. Eight boxes may seem a lot but boy does it sound good.
