The M100+ is an extraordinary amplifier. It is the amplifier that started me on my journey with Consonance, and the one where so many people sat in front of it in awe and asked if I could get one. I sold over 100 of them before Consonance released the Cyber 100 15th Anniversary Model, to show what they had learned about Integrated Amplifiers in the 15 years they had been making them. The 15th was a more sophisticated amplifier, being a more sophisticated design, but was more expensive, so I stopped bringing in the M100+ (The + means it has Remote Control volume. Earlier M100 versions, did not)
The plunging dollar has increased the fiscal gap between them, so in order to offer something truly excellent, but more affordable, I have ordered some more.
It has a power that absolutely defies its 40 w/ch rating. It will drive virtually any speaker. It has a control and musicality which has humbled amplifiers costing 10 times as much, on many occasions. It is the better version of the original amp that stunned me in Canada, causing me to order the "Even better" M100. It has the clarity, soundstage, separation, realism and musicality lacking in most other valve amplifiers and virtually all solid state ones, certainly at anywhere near this price. I am delighted to have it back.
