The Musical Fidelity M8 is a pre-amplifier without limits. From its performance to its connectivity, via quality fit and finish, the Musical Fidelity M8 makes a superlative centrepiece for almost any system.
Musical Fidelity’s M8 has a wide array of inputs including a low noise MM/MC phono stage, 2 balanced inputs (1 with home theatre bypass option), 3 line inputs (one with home theatre bypass option) and a fully configured tape in/out loop.
Musical Fidelity’s M8 Pre-amp has very high input overload margins. This means that it has a completely stress free sound. The outputs are very low impedance and high current so that it can drive virtually any power amp in existence through any length cable (balanced or single ended).
Technical measurements are testament to Musical Fidelity’s M8’s exceptional engineering: from ultra-low distortion to virtually perfect frequency response, and ultra low noise.
The Musical Fidelity M8’s will drive any power amplifier over any length of cable. Although, obviously, it’s perfect partner is a pair of M8-700m monobloc amplifiers.
Listening to Musical Fidelity’s M8 Pre with the M8-700m monobloc is quite an experience. The music is reproduced with no stress, no colouration and sense of relaxation and transparency that are music to the ears and balm to the soul.
