The Michi X5 Series 2 Integrated Amplifier is music reproduction reimagined. Thanks to a meticulous balance of innovation and critical audio engineering applied to every circuit, signal path, and electronic component, the Michi X5 Series 2 is capable of delivering an outstanding 600 Watts of Class AB output power into 4 ohms under even the most demanding conditions. Connect all your favourite music sources including Analog RCA and XLR Balanced, Moving Magnet or Moving Coil Phono, aptXTM HD Wireless Bluetooth, Coaxial and Optical.

The PC-input supports PCM (32-bit 384kHz) and Quad DSD (11.2MHz) with full MQA hardware decoding up to 24-bit 384kHz. An ESS SABRE ES9028PRO 8 Channel Digital to Analog converter is configured for stereo decoding, dedicating 4 channels each to the left and right audio signals rendering music with exceptionally accurate timing and an immersive soundstage which reveals the finest of details.

The Michi X5 Series 2 is powered by dual oversized in-house manufactured, shielded, low noise toroidal transformers feeding a bank of 4 parallel-aligned 22,000uF high-efficiency storage reservoir capacitors. Custom power supplies isolate drive current to critical analog and digital circuits delivering an ultra-quiet noise floor with exceptional control of deep bass energy while maintaining finesse and clarity of the midrange and high frequencies.

The high-resolution graphic display is configurable to show a Graphic EQ or Peak Power Meter and ensures easy setup and configuration. Custom front panel controls and the elegant Michi-series IR remote assures seamless operation from the comfort of your listening chair. Dual Platinum-plated custom Michi speaker binding posts support traditional and bi-wire installations. A full size ¼” (6.35mm) front panel headphone connection is available for private listening sessions. RS232 and Ethernet ports provide compatibility with all popular control systems.
