Noisy Motel
The Acoustic Research AR-M2 might look like a portable player, in reality it is a tiny high-end Hi-Fi system, with separate pre-power amp, isolated digital and analogue circuits, one of the finest DACs, an expensive Alps volume analogue control and the highest quality components throughout. Includes Acoustic Research AC7-IA Impedance Adapter.

The M2 throws down a challenge to existing players in this market, delivering 'Best In Class' sound and outperforming competition costing twice the price.

The audio signature is true to the original Acoustic Research sound, detailed, smooth and precise, fast, punchy and with deep, wide imaging.
