Musical Fidelity M2si

The Musical Fidelity M2si integrated amplifier takes Musical Fidelity’s peerless premium sound experience and applies it to a more affordable price point.

Boasting trickle-down technology from the M3si model, the sound is well complemented by other high-end touches, such as the solid metal controls.

Musical Fidelity M2si

Delivering 76W per-channel into 8Ω (137W into 4Ω), the M2si has the power to drive a wide range of similarly-priced loudspeakers, including the more power-hungry models.

But it’s not just a question of power, as the M2si features a Class A pre-amp stage with its own independent power supply, coupled with a pair of discrete power amps.

The end result of the advanced internal design means the M2si effectively offers the performance benefits of a pre/power configuration but with the convenience of a one-box solution.

The M2si slots in as the perfect amplifier for any system in part thanks to its six Line inputs.

By leaving DAC, CD, streaming and phono tasks to external devices the amplifier is able to function as a pure analogue hub and delivers a sophisticated, highly engaging sound.

For Home Cinema installations, the AUX1 input can also be manually switched to a Home Theatre (HT) through-put.

The M2si integrated amplifier is housed in a 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 M2si apart is its ability to better the sonic capabilities of its rivals and sit comfortably amongst even more expensive, esoteric designs.
