We had celebrated our 10th anniversary in 2003.
We released two products to mark the occasion: 
power amplifier
model M1.2 Reference
(which replaces model M1.1) and 
power amplifier
model M2.2
(which replaces model M2.1) 

 
  M1.2 Reference

  
    M2.2

       The coming out of these models, and especially the Reference model, marks the 10th year anniversary of its predecessor, model M1.1.  The M1.1 was originally introduced at the Summer CES’1993 in Chicago, IL where it had received the Innovation’93 award, followed by a score of highly positive reviews over the years.  The amplifier’s unique topology is a result of years of research in the fields of psycho-acoustics and audio electronics.  It had made this hand-crafted product unparalleled among similar products in any price category.

       The M1.1 and M2.1 (the more powerful version of the M1.1) had been in production for 10 years without any changes, modifications, and upgrades which is quite unusual for the high-end audio industry.  In general, these amps could have hardly been improved; however, the recent availability of better quality parts and components, and the performance data we’d collected in 10 years, had warranted the upgrade. 

       The new products look very similar to the M1.1 and M2.1, with the exception of some writing on the rear panels.   In the M1.2 Reference the nominal power has been increased to 110W in pure class A mode, as compared to the M1.1's 100W.  In the M2.2 the nominal power has been increased to 220W (with 41 Watts in pure class A mode), as compared to the M2.2's 200W (with 36 Watts in pure class A).  

       We've introduced 230V tap in the power transformer, and now the amps work at 100/120/220/230/240V, 50-60Hz.  We've totally redesigned the high and low voltage power supplies for the front end; some critical parts have been replaced with higher quality ones which have appeared on the market recently; certain changes have also been made to the output stage.   All of this has led to changes in the main pc-board.  The board material itself is of the highest available quality. 

       As a result, we’ve achieved even more refined sound reproduction characteristics, with added reliability and durability. 

       Note to the M1.1 and M2.1 owners -- unfortunately, we do not offer an upgrade to M1.2 Ref. and M2.2.   Such an upgrade would require replacement of all key elements, with the exception of the left and right metal sides, heat-sinks and top and bottom covers.  It would be too expensive and, in the end, meaningless; it would make more sense to purchase the new M1.2 Reference or M2.2 amplifiers.
