UPGRADING AUDIO QUALITY
CEntrance raised the bar when it launched a portable amplifier that could drive “Most Headphones Under the Sun.” As audiophiles started investing in high-end, planar magnetic headphones, they needed a compact, battery-powered amplifier that would allow them to take their headphones to work, on a trip, etc. In 2013, CEntrance produced the original HiFi-M8, a portable amp that could drive 1 W of clean power into most demanding headphones. Pronounced “HiFi- Mate”, it got awards from Absolute Sound, CNET, Inner Fidelity, and other prestigious audiophile publications. It’s is still in use in countless homes around the world and we continue to get “thank you” emails from customers, whose listening experience has been improved since they got the “Mate”. Now time has come to upgrade the legend.
20-TH ANNIVERSARY FLAGSHIP
For our 20th anniversary special, we used crowd-sourcing to come up with the best set of features. Some people like to fall asleep to music, so we made sure the noise floor was “pitch black”. Some people have many headphones, so we included four outputs, raised output power, improved D/A conversion, noise and THD specs. We added a 12-segment LED meter that makes it fun to listen to the music and is reminiscent of old Japanese tape decks. And if you don’t want the blinking lights, we added a control to adjust the brightness from zero to daylight. In keeping with the times, we upgraded to USB C jacks and allowed charging from a laptop or a standard 5V USB charger that everyone already has at home. Your HiFi-M8 V2 is smart and won’t take power from the phone, so your phone’s battery is safe.
BUILT TOUGH, BUILT TO LAST
HiFi-M8 V2 is built like a tank and is not afraid to take a beating. It takes design cues from our recording products, which are used daily around the world by CNN, ESPN, and famous touring musicians. The chassis is made from lightweight, extruded, anodized aircraft aluminum. Operation is easy and intuitive, and controls are recessed to avoid accidental bumping. You can turn on and throw your HiFi-M8 in the backpack, without worry that this will accidentally change a setting. But the best part is on the inside. Our custom Hybrid Power System uses a rechargeable battery as a buffer, to fully isolate the sensitive circuitry from the noise and interference coming from wall power. The battery circuit reconditions the supply voltages to deliver clean power to your headphones, now and for many years to come.
