The new M8-700m monobloc power amp is fully balanced, and
offers a staggering 700 watts per monobloc, with stellar sound quality and
The M8-700m has extremely low distortion, typically 0.001%
at 1 kHz. At 20 kHz distortion is still below 0.005%. Distortion at 50 kHz (a
ridiculous and unreasonable measurement, but revealing of the total amplifier
performance nonetheless) is 0.02%. At 100 kHz, it is about 0.06%. These
extraordinary measurements, and the extremely low high-frequency distortion,
are highly significant sonically.
The noise ratio of the M8-700m is extremely low at -120 dB
The M8-700m has huge power reserves, producing 700 watts RMS
into 8 ohms and just on 1300 watts into 4 ohms. It is an absolute powerhouse.
The power, low distortion and the extremely low noise
contribute to its fabulous, effortless sound.
Sound quality and design
The M8-700m is extremely powerful and dynamic. The sound is
sweet, clear and uncoloured. Dynamics are massive and are delivered with
instantaneous speed, both starting and stopping.
The M8-700m sound stage is huge, wide and deep. It creates
large amounts of air and space, and is holographic in its presentation.
Similar in size and design package to the M6 500i, the
M8-700m offers a compelling combination of fully balanced circuitry,
extraordinary technical performance, exquisite sound, intelligent packaging and
value for money makes a compelling case.
