M6 Vinyl Phono Stage


The M6 Vinyl Phono Stage was truly a labour of love for Musical Fidelity, resulting in a phono stage that knows no practical limits. This phono stage will ensure your listening experience remains unimpeded by any unwanted noise and remains distortion free.

It is not possible to overload the M6 Vinyl, and you cannot find any limitations in the output driving capacity. The M6 Vinyl features three inputs, each of which can be set for both Moving Magnet and Moving Coil exact loading, even going so far as to remember your preferred settings.

Truly built with only the best sound quality in mind, the Musical Fidelity M6 Vinyl Phono Stage will remain so subtle in its operation that you won’t even notice it is there. This is due to the absence of practical audible noise, the lack of distortion, the inability to overload the input or output section, and the ease in which you can load your cartridge. This device has been made solely to serve your Hi-Fi needs without imposing upon your system and ensuring your listening experience remains unimpeded.

The M6 Vinyl Phono Stage also features an impressive and sophisticated power supply configuration with a total of 7 power supply units (PSUs). These seven separate PSUs are implemented across each channel and each stage within the M6 Vinyl, remaining fully balanced with perfect star grounding. The two mains transformers incorporate a specially designed 100mHz filter stage, providing the phono stage with 40dB attenuation of illegitimate radio frequency. The SMD PCB layout will even achieve brilliant inter-channel and inter-stage isolation, ensuring only the best possible result when you listen to your music.

On top of all of this, the Musical Fidelity M6 Vinyl will perform excellently thanks to the incredibly low distortion at less than 0.008% across the entire band, the reference 2V Signal-to-Noise ration that is out to impress at -96dB (MM) and -86dB (MC), an overload margin that is greater than 31dB, RIAA accuracy at +/- 0.25dB (with an additional post RIAA filter in place to retain accuracy up to beyond 80kHz), and a maximum output of 10V RMS (20V balanced). The M6 Vinyl even has a +6dB setting to cater for very low output cartridges and the IEC/RIAA modification facility.
