M6 Series

The M6 PRE is a fully balanced pre-amplifier, from beginning to end. Many pre-amps claim to be balanced but in fact are single ended preamps with balanced inputs and balanced outputs. However, the M6 is the real deal.

Its pure Class A circuitry with Surface Mount Devices (SMD) produces very low distortion, minimal phase shift, low noise and excellent linearity. Similarly, the low impedance output stages (both single ended and full balanced) will drive any power amp through any conceivable length of cable, for absolute reliability in performance.

The M6 PRE also features a wide range of inputs, making it the ideal system hub for any high-end audiophile. With two balanced XLR inputs and four unbalanced RCA inputs, the pre-amplifier also features a built-in asynchronous USB DAC capable of 24-bit/96kHz audio playback, and a switchable MM/MC phono stage. There is also the added convenience of a switchable RCA input for Home Theatre bypass.

For connecting on to a power amplifier, the M6 PRE offers both RCA and XLR outputs, as well as a fixed Tape loop for other system solutions. Operation is effortlessly simple via the front-panel buttons or supplied Musical Fidelity system remote.

The M6 PRE stands apart as a high-performance, high-end pre-amplifier that delivers superlative technical performance, great flexibility, excellent build quality and beautiful visuals. But where it truly delivers is when partnered with the powerful M6 PRX

The M6 PRE and PRX are big, powerful high-end electronics that combine the expected Musical Fidelity sound signature with a range of features and technical specifications that make them a real feat of engineering. Available separately, or for a special bundle price they are a very exciting addition to the range that will delight audiophiles of all tastes and preferences.
