The M8s-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 M8s-700m is extremely low at -120 dB A-weighted.

The M8s-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 M8s-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 M8s-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 M6s 500i, the M8s-700m offers a compelling combination of fully balanced circuitry, extraordinary technical performance, exquisite sound, intelligent packaging and value for money makes a compelling case.

 

M8s-700m In Brief

  • Fully balanced, monster power 700W per monobloc
  • Staggering technical performance
  • Huge peak current delivery
  • Incredible load driving ability, will drive any loudspeaker with any cable
  • Excellent design, he-man build quality

 

Design + Build
When we launched our limited-edition Titan power amplifier in back in 2008, its massive power and unique design required very large dimensions and an equally hefty price tag.

Subsequent technical advances – plus immense customer interest – have inspired us to develop a more affordable, more conventional-looking successor of the Titan: the M8s-700m.

The M8s-700m is a fully balanced monobloc power amplifier, which – as its model number suggests – packs 700 watts of power in its sleek black casing. That’s 700 watts RMS into 8ohms; and about 1300 watts into 4ohms.

That’s approaching the powerhouse performance of the 1Kw Titan itself, and indeed measurements show that in action there’s only about 1.25dB between them.

Like its Titan forbear, the M8s-700m is engineered for extremely low distortion – typically 0.001% at 1kHz; below 0.005% at 20kHz. Even at the ridiculous level of 50kHz, distortion is a mere 0.02%, creeping up to around 0.06% at 100kHz. They may be unreasonable figures, but they prove a point: the M8s-700m has significantly less distortion than rival measurements.

Again like the Titan, the M8s-700m is a low-noise power amplifier, with a minimal noise ratio of -120dB A-weighted.

The combination of the huge power reserves, low distortion and low noise contribute to the M8s-700m’s extraordinary, effortless performance. It sounds almost undistinguishable from the Titan, displaying the same ability to deliver anything from massive dynamics to delicate detail with incredible speed and precision.

Whatever style of music you want to listen to, the M8s-700m serves it up in a spacious soundstage rivalled only by the Titan  – or a live musical performance.

Its power and balance means the M8s-700m can drive just about any speaker you choose, backed by flexible connectivity options. Twin sets of speaker terminals make bi-wiring simple, and the M8s-700m’s outputs can be ‘daisy chained’ to bi-amp suitable speakers. It is, of course, the perfect partner – visually and sonically – for our M8 pre-amp.

Reception for the new M8s-700m has been highly enthusiastic. Many press reports have highlighted its more room and wallet-friendly form, while What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision dubbed it the “son of Titan”.

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.

 

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

 

Think you have a better price from someone in NZ (authorised dealer)? Call us, we’ll see what we can do.

 

Concerned About Fraud?
The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating…

 

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
