M1.1 Two-channel Reference Power Amplifier

BROCHURE

The problem is that although power amps themselves might appear simple, their job is anything but straightforward. Caught in a sandwich between the output of a line-stage or DAC and the load requirements and sensitivity of any number of different loudspeakers, they must be able to accommodate the widest range of partnering equipment and interface parameters presented to any unit in the audio system. Achieving optimum results under such varied conditions demands a capable and versatile performer – yet as we’ve already established, most power amps offer a single, brute force solution to the problems they face, instead of adopting a more sophisticated response. It’s time for a change – it’s time to meet the CH Precision M1.1, a new-paradigm in power amplification.

What sets the M1.1 apart? It goes without saying that the M1.1’s sonic and musical performance challenges the state-ofthe- art, an incredibly short audio signal path executed with exacting component choices and construction, a massive power supply providing absolute stability and unfettered headroom, capable of meeting both the most delicate and most massive musical demands. But what makes the M1.1 really different is its software driven housekeeping capabilities, a non-intrusive support network that does more than just keep the amplifier unconditionally stable.
