Silent Angel Munich M1, M1T Streamers Land in UK
Silent Angel has announced its Munich M1 and M1T streamer and digital transport/ network bridge.
Silent Angel's M1 and M1T have now landed in the UK thanks to Whole Note Distribution and follows the brand's growing popularity through such products as the Bonn N8 network switch.
The M1 is described as a full-function streamer as it boasts analogue and USB output and an in-built headphone amplifier. The M1T, on the other hand, is a digital transport designed to be used with an external DAC and so sports USB, S/PDIF and AES EBU outputs.
The AES/EBU, I2S, Coaxial digital output support up to PCM 384KHz and DSD 5.6M (DSD128), whereas the USB audio port can handle up to PCM 768KHz and DSD 11.2MHz (DSD256).
The M1 and M1T brain is a quad-core 1.5GHz ARM Cortex-A72 CPU partnered with low-noise DDR4 RAM in a choice of 2, 4, or 8GB flavours. Internal memory is 32GB of high-speed flash. Storage can be further augmented via the USB 3.0 or pair of USB 2.0 ports. There is also an M-IO, M-LINK for peripheral access.
The fanless design of the 155 x 50.4 x 110mm, 1.63kg units guarantee to put the silent in Silent Angel, and the 6.35mm headphone port of the Munich M1 streamer enables late-night listening.
Both units run on a proprietary application available on iOS and Android platforms that offers access to Spotify, TIDAL, Qobuz and much more. In addition, the M1 is Roon Ready, and we're told that the M1T will follow shortly with the same.
Both the M1 and M1T are supplied with a switch-mode PSU. However, Silent Angel states that performance can be enhanced by using the F1 PSU and optional Bastei DC Cables.
The Silent Angel Munich M1 and M1T are available in the UK now priced at £999 and £699, respectively.
