M2 Direct Digital Amplifier

The M-2 is THE answer for the audiophile who is looking for both state of the art amplification and superb digital to analogue conversion at an affordable, some might say ridiculously low price.($6,000.00).

But don’t just take our word for it. Consider what Robert Harley of The Absolute Sound had to say: " The M2 was outstanding in its ability to unravel complex musical lines. Many amplifiers of this price tend to have a flat homogeneity that prevents one from hearing quieter instrumental lines in the presence of louder ones. This aspect of music reproduction is crucial to understanding the intent of the composer or performers. The M2 was the antithesis of smeared, congested, or confused. Instead, it laid out with exquisite resolution everything that was happening on the music. Moreover, it did this in a completely natural and organic way, with no trace of the analytical.

Partly as a result of this quality, and partly a result of the M2’s fabulous way with dynamic contrasts and shadings, music always had an energetic and upbeat quality ... The M2 had a rhythmic coherence and sense of life that thrilled me and riveted my attention on the music … As for the M2 as an alternative to a $3,500 conventional integrated amplifier and a $2,500 digital-to-analog converter, it’s a slam dunk. I haven’t heard, nor can I imagine, any combination of amplification and DAC at the price approaching the M2’s performance. Moreover, the M2 delivers, in one chassis, decoding of high-resolution digital audio, the source-switching and control functions of a preamplifier, and 250W of amplification—all with outstanding ergonomics. I can envision the M2, or its descendents, as part of a three-piece playback-system: music server, M2-like product, and loudspeakers…”  The Absolute Sound, December 2009
