M3i   M6i   M6500i
   

The M3i integrated amplifier takes our peerless premium-amp experience and applies it to a more affordable price point.

It boasts trickle-down technology from our mighty Titan flagship, plus other high-end touches such as solid metal controls.

The M3i delivers 76 watts per channel into 8ohms and 137 watts into 4ohms. This means the M3i will can drive a wide range of speakers, even power-hungry models.

Further flexibility is provided by the M3i's excellent connectivity, which includes six line-level inputs and switchable home-theatre throughput.

It features a Class A preamp stage with its own, independent power supply, coupled with a discrete pair of power amps. In effect, this means the M3i offers the performance benefits of a pre/power configuration with the compact convenience of a one-box design.

The final word goes to The Absolute Sound, whose review of the M3i stated: "Its performance is rock-solid, it's sonically well-rounded and it's comfortable with a wide array of speakers. And it's all served up in an elegant, no-nonsense package".

 

From its exquisite build and future-proof connectivity to its technical excellence and powerful performance, the M6i is a no-compromise integrated amplifier.

It may be a single-box design, but the M6i is internally engineered as a separate pre-amplifier with two discreet monobloc power amplifiers.

This enables it to deliver a 200 watts-per-channel performance that's exceptional for an integrated amplifier – and which surpasses that of many pre/power amp pairings.

The M6i is a highly flexible design, allowing it to be used in a wide range of systems. In addition to four line-level inputs and one balanced connection, there's a USB socket to suit computer-based audio. There's also a home-theatre throughout option, allowing you to seamlessly integrate the M6i into an AV set-up.

The M6i has the power and technical sophistication to drive any speaker with ease, sounding calm and unruffled as it moves from quiet musical moments to huge dynamic shifts.

As Alan Sircom's review for HiFi+ concludes: "The M6i is in it for the long term; it's an amplifier that will be used by listeners for years and years".

 

The M6 500i is the latest in our legendary line of super integrated amplifiers, building on the sustained success of models like the A1000 and kw500.  It offers best-in-breed performance from a technology-packed, rock-solid build.

Providing 500 watts per channel of power, this is an amp that can easily drive any pair of speakers, without distortion or strain.

The M6 500i features five inputs, one of which is balanced; the AUX/HT input can be switched to allow the amp to seamlessly integrate into music or movie set-ups.

Inside the high-quality casing is equally impressive engineering; the M6 500i is effectively a top-class pre-amp and a separate set of monobloc power amps within one box.

From its technical measurements to its jaw-dropping sound, the M6 500i acts like an amp costing many times the money.  As Scandinavia's leading hi-fi title, Lyd & Bilde put it when reviewing the M6 500i: "With 500W, this is like getting a Ferrari for the price of a Fiat".

M1 CLiC   M1 CDT   M1 DAC
   

We describe the M1 CLiC as a universal music controller for all your digital and analogue sources.

Essentially it combines a high-quality streamed music player, internet radio, 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analogue converter (DAC) and pre-amplifier in one compact box.

The multi-faceted M1 CLiC handles and enhances a vast array of sources and formats, with support for both wired and wireless networking increasing its flexibility further still.

Whether you’re enjoying a new level of music quality from a laptop, Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, USB drive or more traditional sources, the M1 CLiC clearly displays what it’s playing on its bright, colourful display.

The M1 CLiC’s exceptional capabilities may mean it’s a hard product to categorise, but they make it easy to praise. EISA – Europe’s most prestigious technology association – named the M1 CLiC as Best Network Player in its 2011-2012 Awards; Gramophone’s review called it “remarkable for the money”, Hi-Fi News dubbed it “outstanding’ and Hi-Fi World declared ‘it’s hard to think of another product that’s as versatile’.

 

The M1 CDT is designed to do one thing brilliantly: play your CDs.

A CD player typically integrates both a transport section and a digital-to-analogue converter (DAC), along with other ancillary components.

The M1 CDT is a transport only, allowing us to optimise its ability to read the digital discs and deliver the data with no interference from analogue circuitry.

Accuracy is further improved by our use of a premium stabilised clock system, which ensures low-jitter performance. Again, that means you'll hear more from your music when it's played on the M1 CDT.

For sound and styling, the slot-loading M1 CDT is the perfect partner for the M1 CLiC or M1 DAC.  The resultant compact pairing will take up the same space as a conventional-sized CD player and yet deliver so much more in terms of flexibility and performance.

 

We've been making top-performance digital-to-analogue converters since the early days of CD. That means the M1 DAC benefits from almost 25 years of continual development, drawing on successive acclaimed DAC designs.

Whatever your digital source – from CD to computer to TV set-top box or DVD/Blu-ray player – the M1 DAC can upsample and convert it, producing stunning 24bit/192kHz resolution audio. In comparison, CD resolution is a mere 16bit/44.1kHz.

The M1 DAC features four digital inputs: balanced, USB, optical and coaxial. It is an asynchronous design with awesome performance: from its low-distortion, noise levels and jitter-minimising technology to its high-quality power supply, the M1 DAC surpasses the standards of DACs costing many times its price.

The M1 DAC has been met with incredible acclaim. Stereophile's review said it "offers performance that is close to the state of the art", calling it "a piece of kit that can transform your system " and "a stunning bargain".

Meanwhile, the review from computer-audio specialist, AudioStream described the M1 DAC as "a wonderfully musical-sounding DAC, and one that offered many hours of pure enjoyment."

M1 ViNL   M1 HPA   M1 PWR
   

Records retain an immense – and growing – appeal for music fans, and we believe in helping LP lovers get the very best from their vinyl.

That's why we designed our state-of-the-art phono pre-amplifier, the M1 ViNL.

It's engineered to deliver a level of performance and versatility that an integrated amplifier's phono stage – and indeed many dedicated rivals – can only dream of.

The M1 ViNL offers an extraordinary menu of loading options for users of both moving-magnet (MM) and moving-coil (MC) cartridges, meaning you can find the perfect set up for your system. Switchable RIAA and IEC EQs add further flexibility.

The M1 ViNL even allows you to switch resistance, capacitance or equalisation curve while you're playing records – so you can instantly hear the effect of each mode and more easily find the optimum settings for different cartridges and discs. A clear display and intuitive controls make the process simpler still.

 

If you've only ever heard your headphones plugged into an everyday amp, or a computer, the M1 HPA will be a revelation.

It's a dedicated headphone amplifier capable of driving any set of cans to unprecedented levels of performance.  Whatever your source, you'll hear the music open up, revealing greater scale, extension and detail.

The secret to the M1 HPA's stunning sound is its pure Class A amplifier design, which is paired with a high-current, low-noise power supply. This combination gives the M1 HPA the ability to drive any headphone without distortion.

Its talents don't end there: the M1 HPA also functions as a high-quality pre-amplifier.

The M1 HPA has already received much acclaim:  the Hi-Fi Choice review stated "you might have to pay fives times the HPA's asking price to significantly better its performance", while the Hi-Fi News group test concluded: "on excellent sound, facilities and value for money, the M1 HPA is a clear winner."

 

The latest addition to the M1 series came from customer demand – they were clamouring for the perfect power amplifier partner for the award-winning M1 CLiC music controller.

After intensive technical development, we've delivered just that – and more – in the compact shape of the M1 PWR.

It's a premium performance mono/stereo power amplifier. A single M1 PWR offers 60 watts per channel of stereo drive, but at the slide of a switch it becomes a 100 watt monobloc. All circuitry is internally switched: all you need to do is connect up a second M1 PWR for an excellent, easy upgrade.

Even in its single-box mode it drives speakers with ease, delivering superb stereo separation and a punchy, pure sound. Add another M1 PWR and the performance steps up to another level again.

The svelte design and outstanding value of the M1 range means stacking up an amazing hi-fi system has never been easier, even if your space and budget are limited

V-DACII    V-CANII   V-LPSII
   

The V-DAC II brings true hi-fi quality digital-to-analogue conversion to an affordable price point.

From CDs to music streaming and downloads – if you listen to digital music then you need a digital-to-analogue converter (DAC) before amplification and speakers can work their magic.

Computers – and even many CD players – use very basic DACs, meaning you won’t get close to hearing the best from your music.  That all changes when you add the dedicated V-DAC II: from lower bit-rate internet streams to better-than CD quality music files, your listening will be transformed.

With co-axial, optical and USB inputs, there’s not a digital device the V-DAC II can’t enhance – it’ll even boost the performance of your TV receiver and Blu-ray/DVD player.

Crucially, it’s a 24bit/192kHz asynchronous USB design, offering a significant sonic step up for computer music lovers.

All this high-end hi-fi technology is presented in a solid casing with a sleek brushed silver finish. As with the rest of the V Series, the V-DAC II is a product you’ll be proud to own.

 

Enjoy listening to your hi-fi system via headphones? You’ll enjoy it much more with a dedicated headphone amplifier. The V-CAN II delivers a massive upgrade in sound quality from the standard headphone outputs offered by most hi-fi kit.

Quite simply, by driving your headphones more effectively, the V-CAN II lets you hear what they’re really capable of – you’ll get the full value from your headphone purchase, along with greater listening pleasure.

The V-CAN II is small, beautifully built and easy to use. It has sockets for both common sizes of headphone plug – 6.25mm and 3.5mm – and hooks into your hi-fi system via standard RCA line-level connections.

From the smallest in-ear designs to the biggest hi-fi headphones, the V-CAN II will drive them to perfection. As the Playback review summarises: “The V-CAN II conveys an impression of effortless power coupled with a suave delivery….With every headphone and earbud I tried, the V-CAN II created an image that had excellent specificity and focus”.

 

The V-LPS II is a high-quality phono stage, designed to boost the performance of turntables using either moving-magnet (MM) and moving-coil (MC) cartridges.

It is designed to offer a significant upgrade to the integrated phono stages found in many hi-fi components, which can’t match the optimised approach of the V-LPS II’s dedicated design.

Your vinyl listening will benefit from our years of expertise, distilled down to this affordable package. Open up the V-LPS II and you’ll essentially find the same circuitry as our high-end kW phono stage.

The V-LPS II builds on the exceptional technical performance of the first-generation V-LPS, plus wraps its sonic superiority in the new higher-quality casing and sleek silver finish featured across the Mark II V-Series range.

When Stereophile reviewed the first-generation V-LPS, they praised its performance, saying you’d have to spend at least four times more money to buy better sound. The upgraded V-LPS II offers even better value.
