CD Receiver System Revox M100

The Bauhaus receiver: The growing CD receiver system M 100 (from 4500 euro) is almost the quintessence of the modern Revox: as versatile and still very nice audiophile.

It was really cute, re Vox Managing Director Mark Haddad and the accompanying Development Director Wolfgang Kalela packed out during their visit to the editors there. The small CD/DVD Receiver 100 M with its edge length of just 18 x 37 x 34 cm in addition to the pre / power amplifier combinations of this issue looked like toys.

” Underestimate me the M 100 not”, said Kalela, when he saw our eyes. “We have built a high-efficiency PWM power amplifiers; the drive even the most demanding speaker.”

The power levels developed by Revox without are indeed. Thanks to their Adaptive Softclippings that also inspired many NAD amplifiers to power, they come up about 200 watts per page.

Because the built-in loop involving also the output filter, this digital amplifiers do not suffer from the dilemma of many of their competitors: they sound and performance are largely independent of the impedance of the connected speakers.

The development of these demanding projects sets Revox since 1997 in the hands of J├╝rgen Lindemann, who designed several very fine high end components before with his brother Norbert under the label of Lindemann. The feeling for the high quality exists here in any case.

Back to the little M 100. The design concept was done already at the IFA 2008, but the devices came in December 2010 in the trade. You wanted to take the time, Haddad says: “had just really good to. To connect a device that is designed, the great Revox tradition .”

But consider this: Revox has evolved in recent years. The manufacturer of finest Hi-Fi and Studio technology became a provider of sophisticated consumer electronics for the whole House; close cooperation with the Gira home-control Pro has sharpened the sense for applications and integration in house systems once more at Revox. A plant that operated Revox tradition and fashionable, had to be forcibly very noble and extremely versatile.

The plans ultimately resulted in a combination of smaller high-tech boxes that are clad in 3 mm strong aluminium. Already the touch conveys confidence. The modules form a connected intelligent modular concept that grows with the requirements or the apartment. In addition to the here tested base model M100, there is the tuner, the multi-room, server and multi-zones module (see picture gallery).

The base engine is an amazingly low noise and high sound FM tuner and a DVD drive. So Hackett, it was decided “after long internal discussion” to output the video signals. Although this point was not at the top in the specifications: the image of M 100 was virtually noise-free, intense colour and better than that of most top class player out of rank & name list of stereoplay.

Of course, a Blu-ray drive would have been the crowning. But that, as Kalela, would no longer fit with the best will in the small enclosure. Halbig inclined customer want to necessarily see Blu-ray movies, refers to the in-house Server M 117, coming soon: “who can handle all formats and can play all movies and CDs.”

The basic operation of the small M 100 is a breeze. The no longer very modern-looking display leads the user to each point of the program. After a period of inactivity, it goes out – once you get the hand – back to deal. Very nice. How the fact that you even the sensitivity (from what distance responds the display?) can set. The Setup for such in-depth settings opens after prolonged pressure on the “Timer”-button.

Hereby you can get access to the built-in DSP, which allows an equalization of interfaces and a frequency linearization of Revox loudspeakers; It leaves in this deliberately out foreign speakers. Entering the preloaded model code , and already the M irons out 100 small frequency deviations. The test model with the in-house G Pandae worked anyway, well that.

The DSP limited also the main speaker in the bass on request, if you want to connect an additional subwoofer. But the crossover frequency is fixed at 100 Hertz.

A very flat remote that will remain but probably mostly in a box among the Pack of 100 M. Revox namely recently has an app for iPad, iPod or iPhone develops. You conjures just the M-100 display on the Apple devices. This is of course a much smarter solution.

In the listening test, the 100 M first launched on the work references B & W 802 diamond. Of the character made more reserved and almost similar to the tube warm, she developed the full panorama of sound and the impulsiveness of Monty Alexander’s percussive Fireworks “Hurricane come and gone” yet. That sounded at least much better than we would have expected it from the cubes.

But what does that mean? Where is the M 100 in the rankings? A comparison with full-size components is indeed common, but helps in determining location. The combination of Vincent SV 234 plus CD 4 S had but a little more steam and emphasis, but harmonious and ultimately in the heights finer acted the Revox.

How was that even with the possible adaptation of Revox boxes? Exactly. Haddad and Kalela had M-100-complementing the Re: sound G prestige brought (3,000 euros). The slim column speaker was excellent and sounded like much more volume than it actually occupies. In the basic character, she resembled the excellent Dynaudio Excite X 32. Voices – such as those by Livingston Taylor – celebrated it like sonor grasping and resolving fine.

And it got even better at the 100 M. The tricky equalization brought not more level strength more sovereignty and homogeneity (the G prestige came rather to the limit as the power amplifiers of the M 100), but it once again.

For the M-100 customers so it is worth very much current (because in the DSP before entzerrte) Revox speakers to fall back. They, this black forest are pretty smart. And able to produce a great as well as charming music system.
