The M6 Vinyl was a labour of love for MF. We love phono, and relished in the pure joy of designing a product of our dreams.
We set out to make a phono stage without any practical limits. Essentially, in real life, you cannot overload the input stage or find any practical limitations in the output driving capacity. Single ended or balanced.
It has three inputs, each can be set for either MM/MC and exact loading. It will remember those settings.
The M6 Vinyl has a very sophisticated power supply configuration. A total of about 7 PSUs.
The SMD PCB layout achieves outstanding inter-channel and inter-stage isolation.
Everything has been designed to allow the sound to sing....no noise, no distortion, no layout anomalies.....nothing gets in the way of the M6 Vinyl's reason for existence......the music!
Extremely low distortion: less than 0.008% across the band.
Its S/N ration is really good; -96db (MM), and -86dB (MC)... reference 2V
Overload margin is better than 31dB!!
RIAA accuracy is +/- 0.25dB. And it has an additional post RIAA filter that retains substantial accuracy up to beyond 80kHz.
Maximum output is 10V RMS, 20V Balanced.
Also the Vinyl has a +6db setting for very low output cartridges and the IEC/RIAA modification facility.
Input resistance values (8):
10R, 25R, 50R, 100R, 400R, 800R, 1k2, 47k
Capacitance values (8):
50pf, 100pf, 150pf, 200pf, 250pf, 300pf, 350pf, 400pf
The true point of any electronic, actually any audio component, is that you don't know it is there. You completely forget its existence. By that criteria the M6 Vinyl is almost perfect. It has no practical audible noise, it doesn't really have distortion, you cannot overload its input or output, you can load your cartridge perfectly. It exists to serve the music. To bring the artists intent, emotions and passion to your ears and heart.
Yeah, we can talk about bass (deep, deep, deep), imaging (tactile, holographic), high frequency clarity with no sibilance....and on and on. Yeah, It does all those things.....but the big thing it does… the thing that matters, is that it eases your soul by getting you to the heart of the music.
The M6 Vinyl's offers state-of-the-art technical and sonic performance at a very competitive price and is the epitome of the true spirit of high end audio.
If you love your music from vinyl then this is a 'must have' product!
