Musical Fidelity M6x 250.7 Multichannel Amp Released
Musical Fidelity's M6x 250.7 is the first of a new range of multichannel amplifiers for the brand and is available now.
Musical Fidelity's M6x 250.7 multichannel power amplifier is pitched as a high-performance class A/B power amplifier design and is the first of three models the audio electronics specialist will release.
Sitting in the middle of the planned new range, this seven-channel variant offers a 250W class A/B amplifier stage per channel. Musical Fidelity states that the amp's design promises a highly natural sound as it preserves all transients and micro information. Additionally, the “super silent audiophile power transformer” distributes clean power, resulting in a high dynamic range and a detailed sound stage. THD + N is listed as being 0.003% @ 100W power output, while the frequency range is quoted as 20Hz – 20kHz for 0.5dB.
Finally, thanks to a sophisticated heat sink design, the M6x 250.7 eschews the need for a fan to keep the amplifier cool, with MF boasting that, despite its considerable power, you will never hear any fan noise coming from the amp.
Musical Fidelity also seems proud of the M6x 250.7's high-quality metalwork and clean look. The front panel in either black or silver finish is a custom-made fine line aluminium extrusion.
You can connect your pre-amplifier/AV processor with either RCA or fully balanced XLR cables with one gold-plated RCA and one balanced XLR input offered per channel. MF recommends using the balanced connection whenever possible as “this kind of signal transmission leads to increased dynamics, less noise and improved signal-to-noise ratios”.
The company adds that if you need the same signal on multiple inputs, e.g., bi-amping, you can use the gold-plated RCA through output and distribute the signal to the next input. The gold-plated isolated speaker output terminals accept 4 mm banana plugs, spade connectors or naked wire. The trigger in-/output allows you to turn the device on/off via other components.
The Musical Fidelity M6x 250.7 is available now in Black finish, priced at £3,099 in the UK (around $3,400 USD).
