The highest sound quality at all volume levels, flat frequency response into any load, and stable into the most difficult loads. The Statement M1 is a state-of-the-art monaural amplifier delivering 1,000 watts into 8ohms and 2,000 watts into 4ohms or less with THD remaining under 0.1% from 20Hz to 20kHz. Designed and engineered in our advanced research center in Ottawa, Canada, the M1 is manufactured in our Toronto facility.
More than just a slim, technologically advanced monaural design, the M1 demonstrates that Class D architecture isn't fundamentally flawed, it simply hasn't been implemented well in the past, mainly because it required such a heavy commitment to R&D. We’re fortunate to have the in-house resources to create such a groundbreaking product and one listen will reveal the truly extraordinary nature of this amplifier.
- Full resolution of all of the sonic subtleties and complexities in the input signal.
- Accurate reproduction of the full dynamic range of the signal.
- Output stage is never allowed to clip.
- No compression as output increases.
- Flat frequency response into any load, without having to resort to digital conversion or equalization to compensate.
- Stable into all loads including open circuit and short circuit.
- A low noise floor.
- Exceptional efficiency with low heat output.
- An amp so mechanically silent it will suit even the quietest listening room.
- A design that allows multiple units to be stacked with no danger of overheating.
- All of the above delivered at a price point that while not inexpensive, delivers virtually limitless dynamic fidelity.
- Proprietary design - high output, high efficiency, and compact size
- Exceptional efficiency
- Advanced load monitoring and power factor correction
- RCA, XLR, and Trigger inputs
- Trigger and Binding post outputs
- Power Output continuous, 20Hz to 20kHz, <0.1% THD+N:
- 8Ω: 1000W
- 4Ω: 2000W
- 3Ω: 2400W
- 2Ω: >2000W depending on line voltage regulation
- With 120V AC supply the amplifier’s maximum output into impedances 4 Ω and lower, as well as its maximum duration, vary depending on line voltage regulation.
- Frequency Response 20Hz to 20kHz:
- Open Circuit: +/- 0.1 dB
- 8Ω: +/- 0.1dB
- 4Ω: +/- 0.1dB
- 2Ω: +/- 0.2dB
- Power Bandwidth 1000 W at 8Ω: 5Hz to 45kHz
- THD+N at 1kHz, 8ohms:
- 1W: 0.01 %
- 10W: 0.01 %
- 100W: <0.03 %
- 1000W: <0.06 %
- IMD 19kHz + 20kHz, CCIF: 0.003%
- S/N Ratio ref. 1000 W, IEC-A: 113dB
- Voltage Gain: 29dB
- Input Sensitivity: 100mV for 1W output, 3.2V for 1000W output (8Ω)
- Input Impedance: 10kΩ (RCA), 20kΩ (XLR)
- Damping Factor: 800 to 1400 depending on frequency
- XLR Configuration: Pin 1: Ground, Pin 2: Positive, Pin 3: Negative
- POWER REQUIREMENTS (consumption in a typical music / theater installation):
- Standby mode, 120V mains: <1 W
- Standby mode, 240V mains: <2 W
- Operate mode, idle: 33W
- Typical operation: 300W
- Where mains voltage is 120V, one dedicated 15A circuit per amplifier is recommended depending on speaker. A 20A circuit is adequate for two amplifiers playing music where speaker impedance is 8Ω. This product operates from a single phase AC power source that supplies between 108V and 264V at a frequency of 50 or 60Hz.
