The Musical Fidelity M3 Si integrated amplifier is the second integrated amplifier offered by the manufacturer.
However, despite its affordable price, this amplifier offers a surprising restitution and features that make it a great product.
The front panel of the M3 Si is very sober but of an excellent quality, in natural or black aluminium. It offers the essential, i.e. everything!
In the centre, there is a large rotary volume button.
On each side, there are small push buttons corresponding to the sources. In addition, there is only one start/stop.
At the back, there are 4 high level inputs, a Pre-Out output (for a power amp) and a Line Out output (for a recorder or headphone amp).
There are also one superb MM and MC phono input and one stereo speaker output on excellent terminal blocks.
The “AUX1” input is switchable via a small By Pass switch.
Musical Fidelity demonstrates that the used technology is the same as the famous and high-end Titan amplifier.
The M3 Si amplifier delivers 85 W per channel at 8 ohms and can deliver 150 W at 5 ohms. This allows it to “drive” a large range of Hi-Fi speakers, even the most difficult products.
The preamplifier works in class A. It ensures an excellent transparency and dynamics.
The Musical Fidelity M3 Si is equipped with an excellent MM phono input. Its important sensitivity (from 1.5mV) makes it compatible with high output MC cartridges.
The manufacturer equipped this amplifier with an audio USB-B input and so with a N/A DAC. This input processes asynchronously the digital signal up to 24bits/96 Khz.
This Musical Fidelity M3 Si amp is surprising by its restitution which appears to be above its price. Associated with a very good pair of speakers, and as with the Musical Fidelity M2 Si integrated amplifier, we forget in a few minutes the real price at which it is proposed!
The listening is very clean and detailed. The M3 Si does not mask anything at all and does not highlight any part of the spectrum. The transparency seems as spectacular in the bass as in the mid-range/treble.
We also notice in comparison with some British competitors that the M3 Si amplifier is less colored and less flattering, thus more neutral.
There is also an irreproachable dynamic and a sense of rhythm that reminds us of the brand's beautiful productions of the 90s!
In addition, the USB input with a MacBook and the Qobuz application in HD gave surprising results! The phono input is really exploitable and delivers a quality that few integrated (even the English!) offer.
The Musical Fidelity M3 Si integrated amplifier has an outstanding quality and restitution level! This is a superb amplifier, very multitask and easy to associate. It fully meets the current demand of music lovers and audiophiles with low budgets.
Certainly one of the best integrated amplifiers available for less than 1500 euros!
