The Michi P5 Control Amplifier delivers the ultimate performance in audio processing with a full complement of analog and digital source inputs. Over 3 years in the making, every aspect of the P5 has been carefully crafted including the power supply, circuit design and critical component selection to ensure the highest integrity of the audio signal eliminating unwanted noise and distortion.
The Dual AKM 32-bit DACs feed the Class-A preamplifier circuit ensuring detail, accuracy and the highest musical fidelity while maintaining crucial rhythm and timing for all musical genre regardless of your listening style. These circuits are supported by an array of 17 independent voltage regulators driven from 2 custom designed and factory built toroidal transformers with low ESR smoothing capacitors to deliver ripple free current to all critical circuits.
Accuracy and detail are essential in reproducing audio and equality important is delivering music that is enjoyable and entertaining. The P5 excels in all aspects building on over 55 years of audio design experience. The bespoke in-house manufacturing facility ensures this preamplifier is built to highest of quality standards allowing it to proudly wear the Michi logo.
Automation and control system integration is easily supported with RS232 and Ethernet connections.
The Michi P5 includes MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) technology, which enables you to play back MQA audio files and streams, delivering the sound of the original master recording.
