Musical Fidelity M6x Vinyl Balanced MM/MC Phono Preamplifier (Silver)



SKU: M6x Vinyl Silver Refurb



The M6x Vinyl is a revised M6 Vinyl now with balanced input
and fully discrete circuit board design!.

The M6x ViNYL is a very high performance, highly accurate
phono MM/MC cartridge amplifier in a beautifully designed and executed
casework. We set out to make a phono stage without any practical limits. It’s
designed in such a way to ensure you cannot overload the input stage or
encounter any practical limitations in the output driving capacity during
regular use, whether running single-ended or balanced. It has three inputs, and
each can be individually set for either MM/ MC and loading. Each input also then
remembers its own settings. It 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.

Design Philosophy

While updating from the M6 ViNYL to the M6x ViNYL, we have
switched to an entirely discrete circuitry, which results in better technical
measurements and better sound. It is equipped with one balanced input and
output as well as two single-ended inputs and one single-ended output to fit
well into any vinyl hi-fi system. But the important question is: what is so
special about discrete circuits

The Advantage of Discrete Circuits

A discrete circuit is composed of electronic components
which are disparate, individual devices, also called discrete components. These
can be “passive” components, like resistors, capacitors and inductors, as well
as “active” components, which in our case are transistors. The opposite to this
would be an integrated circuit, which uses operational amplifiers (Op-Amps) in
the signal chain. In our industry we employ specialised Op-Amps built for audio
applications, which allow us to produce very small and efficient electronics,
as well as saving the time of design engineers. However, countless hours of
listening tests and years of experience have shown us that even the very best
Op-Amps do not tend to be so neutral, natural, dynamic or vivid – all of which
are characteristics of the Musical Fidelity “sound”. For that reason, we’re
rediscovering our passion for traditional, discrete designs. Where standard
phono pre-amplifiers with integrated circuits have a few tens or hundreds of
components, discrete designs will employ hundreds or thousands of components by
comparison. That makes for an extended design process, but in our opinion
results in the best sound for your money. The unit features three separate,
independently selectable cartridge inputs. This allows choice between three
different turntables, or multiple tone arm configurations if required.
Selectable gain is provided to allow for different cartridge sensitivities and
ton suit any equipment. Cartridge type and loading is selected by front
selector buttons for optimum cartridge performance.

Making Way For Pure Music

The true point of any electronic, actually any audio
component, is that you don‘t know it is there. You completely forget its
existance. By that criteria the M6x 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
