Musical Fidelity M1DAC is the fruit of the 23 years experience of making top performance DACs, offering 4 digital inputs (coax, optical, balanced, USB) and is one of the best DACs under £1000. It's also one most complete DACs - in addition to 4 digital inputs, it features RCA and XLR outputs, a choke-regulated internal power supply and the new gorgeous monolithic chassis style.
The M1's technical performance is, pretty well, as good as any at any price. We know this sounds like an incredible claim but it's true. Musical Fidelity's state-of-the-art circuit design and pcb layout with the use of top quality digital components gives state-of-the-art performance. There's no secret or mystery about this.
Musical Fidelity use top quality digital components in carefully designed circuit configurations which are subtly implemented on brilliant pcb layouts. Unsurprisingly the result is state-of-the-art performance. It's just that the price is competitive so many people find it hard to believe.
'The M1 DAC is terrific for the money. It’s good enough to worry the class leaders' (What Hi-Fi magazine)
'Open and dynamic sound; punchy bass; expressive midrange; nice build' (What Hi-Fi magazine)
'Overall the M1 DAC is a terrific performer for the money, being well-equipped, nicely made and easily one of the best-sounding DACs we’ve heard below the £500 price point. It’s a great buy' (What Hi-Fi magazine)
'Like: Clean, open sound with impressive features and flexibility...talented combination with excellent sound quality and useful additional features' (Hi-Fi Choice June 2011 - reviewed with M1 CDT)
'There is no shortage of competition at or around the £1,000 price point and there will be people who prefer to buy a single box and be done with it, but if you are looking for a player which artfully combines a very natural presentation and brings very little of the character of the electronics to the performance, the M1 system demands an audition' (Hi-Fi Choice June 2011 - reviewed with M1 CDT)
