MICHI have received a number of industry reviews and awards that have placed their range firmly at the summit of the high-end hi-fi mountain.
Leading with the big news for MICHI, the P5 Preamplifier and S5 Stereo Power Amplifier have received the 2020-2021 EISA award for Best High-End Pre/Power Amplifier. No mean feat in the ultra competitive world of high-end audio, MICHI has received a standing ovation from the Expert Imaging & Sound Association.
MICHI have also had some big name reviews that are rightly giving them their glowing reputation.
"Rotel’s high-end sub-brand is back, some three decades after its first appearance, and the Michi P5 control amplifier and S5 power amp bring a welcome breath of weight, scale and entirely natural music-making to the high-end arena. With cool black looks and stunning build quality, the duo displays a wide-ranging ability across a broad spectrum of musical genres."
"Michi is all about the emotion and spirit of the music, delivered on an entirely human scale. The amps are flexible too, the preamp offering a wide range of digital and analogue inputs, and the quality is assured by painstaking hand assembly, from the basic components upwards. It’s a stunning return."
"The P5/S5 is turning out to be a redoubtable sounding pre/power combination, one that has great detail, clarity and insight – as well as a seemingly unending amount of power. It doesn't just go loud, it does so with grace and composure and exudes an air of confidence and calm."
"This pre/power does it all with so little fuss; there's no histrionics or messing around. An excellent new design, anyone considering buying some high-end amplification simply must hear this."
"There is absolutely no doubt that the Michi P5 preamplifier comfortably caters to just about any possible analogue and digital need. It’s a complete switching and control hub. In fact, it’s a tour de force in preamplification design. Period.
"The P5/S5 deliver a full-blooded, holistic sound in which it seems the hi-fi bag of tricks is put aside, and the music is moved up to centre stage for your enjoyment. Which, of course, is just as it should be"
