Overview: The Musical Fidelity M6 Series integrated
amplifier employs a low noise, high-quality preamplifier and two mono-block
power amplifiers. Due to its excellent linearity, low distortion, and excellent
load driving ability, the M6 Series amplifier can be paired with any
loudspeaker. It's extremely quiet so high-sensitivity loudspeakers are fine, but
at the same time it's very powerful so lower sensitivity speakers present no
problem. The Musical Fidelity M6 Series integrated amplifier has excellent
signal-to-noise ratio (>100dB), low distortion (<0.01%), wide bandwidth
(10Hz-20kHz) and dynamic range, with extraordinary resolution and fine detail.
As a result, your music sounds smooth, warm, and inviting (without
colorization). The Musical Fidelity M6 Series integrated amplifier has been
engineered to be as smooth and seamless in operation as possible. It has ultra
low noise silent switching, perfect volume control matching even at very low
levels, and outstanding power amp stability margins.
Note: The M6 Series integrated amplifier is designed to
be partnered with the Musical Fidelity M6 Series CD player/DAC (778M6CDB,
sold separately). This combination yields high-fidelity, audiophile sound.
It can also be used with any CD player or external analog audio source which
features either an analog stereo (RCA) or balanced XLR input.
Rigid Chassis: The Musical Fidelity M6 Series integrated
amplifier features an extruded aluminum front-panel, solid aluminum chassis, and
metal front-panel controls to resist vibration and improve overall sound quality.
Extruded Aluminum Heat Sinks: The M6 Series integrated amplifier is
equipped with integrated side-panel extruded aluminum heat sinks to keep the
amplifier operating at normal temperatures for maximum performance.
Two Mono-block Power Amps with Separate Preamp: Although the M6 Series
integrated amplifier is presented as a sleek single component, it is in fact a
separate preamp with two high powered mono-block power amplifiers. Internally,
the Musical Fidelity M6 Series integrated amplifier is configured as two
mono-block power amps and a separate preamp; each with its own transformer
windings and power supply. As a result, the M6 Series integrated amplifier will
deliver all music types exactly as the artist originally intended.
- 2 Mono-block Power Amps: The power amplifier consists of two
mono-block amplifiers with separate supplies for the absolute best in
separation and imaging. Generously rated (200W per channel), they are enough
to drive even the most demanding loudspeakers with ease.
- Class A Preamp: The Musical Fidelity M6 Series
integrated amplifier has a Class A preamp with its own, independent power
supply with separate transformer windings.
High-Power, High-Current Design: The Musical Fidelity M6 Series
integrated amplifier has high power (200W per channel), high current delivery,
low distortion (<0.01%), wide bandwidth (10Hz-20kHz), and excellent
signal-to-noise ratio (>100dB). As a result, the M6 Series integrate amplifier
will drive any pair of loudspeakers to your liking.
4-Ohm Stable: The Musical Fidelity M6 Series integrated
amplifier delivers 200-watts per channel. Into 4-ohms it delivers an amazing
400-watts per channel, and into 2-ohms it gives 800-watts per channel peaks.
Isolated Circuitry: Great attention has been paid to the integrated
amplifier's internal layout, isolating each circuit section to prevent possible
IR Remote Control: The Musical Fidelity M6 Series integrated amplifier
includes an IR remote control for wireless operation of the unit and your
connected Musical Fidelity CD player (sold separately).
Note: The remote operates off of two "AAA" batteries.
Balanced and Unbalanced Analog Inputs: The Music Fidelity M6
Series integrated amplifier is equipped with both balanced (XLR) and unbalanced
(RCA) audio inputs to connect your CD player, media player, tuner, or other
analog audio source.
- Balanced XLR Outputs: The Music Fidelity M6 Series
integrated amplifier features a true balanced XLR analog audio input to
connect a high-end CD player or other home audio component. XLR is a
higher-quality input that can reject noise and interference with equipment
with balanced outputs.
- Unbalanced RCA Inputs: The Musical Fidelity M6 Series integrated
amplifier is equipped with 4 rear-panel analog stereo RCA inputs (CD, Tuner,
HT/AUX, and Tape). These analog stereo RCA terminals are suited for
any line-level source (except phono).
HT/AUX Input: The HT/AUX Input can be set to bypass the M6 Series
integrated amplifier's volume control. This allows you to connect a source which
requires its own volume control to be used.
USB Port: The Musical Fidelity M6 Series integrated
amplifier features a rear-panel USB (type-B) port for the connection of your
Windows PC or Mac computer, so you can listen to your stored compressed music
files (CD, MP3, WMA, WAV, AAC, FLAC) with high-quality sound.
Note: The CD-DAC's USB (type-B) port supports Windows
98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista, and 7; as well as MAC OS X.
Tape Output: The integrated amplifier's analog stereo RCA
tape-output lets you connect a tape recorder or CD-burner. The unit's
tape-output is not affected by the volume control.
Pre-Out: The integrated amplifier's analog stereo RCA pre-out allows
analog signals controlled by the volume, to pass on to a second amplifier
(useful for bi-amping). You can also connect a powered subwoofer, which has its
own built-in low-pass crossover.
Binding Posts: The M6 Series integrated amplifier is
equipped with 4 binding-post speaker terminals to connect a pair of bookshelf or
floor-standing loudspeakers. The binding-post terminals will accept bare wire,
pin-connectors, spade-connectors, and banana plugs (single only). The binding post terminals are
color-coded (red/black) to distinguish positive and negative.
Optional Phono Preamplifier: The M6 Series integrated amplifier does not feature a phono input. You will need an
external phono preamplifier, such as the Musical Fidelity
V-LPS, (778VLPS, sold separately) to connect a turntable.
Optional Headphone Amplifier: The M6 Series integrated amplifier does
not feature a headphone output. You will need an external headphone amplifier,
such as the Musical Fidelity V-CAN (778VCAN,
sold separately) or the M1 Series headphone amplifier (778M1HPAB,
sold separately) to connect a set of headphones.
