When we introduced the M50/M51/M52 Digital Music Suite in 2012 (in honour of our 40th Anniversary) we were betting that audiophiles around the world would embrace the new digital format of High Resolution Audio. These ‘highest quality’ recordings were just becoming available to consumers. For music lovers it was a dream come true. Imagine; exact copies of the Studio Master could now be easily downloaded, stored, and played back at any time in the home. Music lovers could finally get all the music the artist created, not just a compressed, limited copy. The Masters Suite makes it easy to download these high-res music files and securely store them, without reverting to the many risks and limitations inherent in using a computer for this task.

The M50.2 is a “software defined” product, meaning that much of the functionality of the system is defined by software not hardware. This means that new cloud services or audio codecs can be integrated at a future date by simply changing the software stack of the M50.2. This software upgrade potential means that there is a software ‘roadmap’ that allows the M50.2 to live on and maintain its cutting edge functionality.
