Musical Fidelity M2sCD

M2sCD

The M2sCD is a serious, Red Book hi-fi CD player designed to match the cosmetic appeal of the M2si amplifier, while also sonically matching its high-fidelity delivery.

Built upon years of Musical Fidelity know-how, the M2sCD is unique in that it features both a mains choke filter and a high-tech digital stream noise filter.

This innovative approach enables the player to measure like far more expensive devices, with low distortion and a virtually flat frequency response, plus minimal noise and jitter.

The internal DAC design draws from its high-end siblings in the Musical Fidelity range, using cutting-edge technology like 24bit Delta-Sigma conversion with 8x oversampling to ensure excellent data recovery from your discs.

Simply put, that means you’ll hear every detail from your music.

The M2sCD CD player and matching M2si integrated amplifier are housed in heavy metal enclosures and feature neat aluminium front panels – finished in silver or black.

Control is effortlessly simple either via the supplied system remote or the clearly labelled front panel controls.

But as well as being easy to integrate, a joy to behold and priced appealingly, what really sets the M2sCD apart is its ability to better the sonic capabilities of its rivals and sit comfortably amongst even more expensive, esoteric designs.
