The FM1000 employs to control the units with streaming clients MP 2000 R MKII, MP 1000 E and R 1000 E of R- and E-series.
It features all buttons to control all functions and the streaming client directly. The amplifiers of the series are controlled as well when connected by the system bus.
The buttons are arranged in logical blocks of functions, while clear colour-coding of the most important buttons greatly simplifies operation.
The materials for the housing are exclusively of the highest-possible quality: the front panel consists of 4 mm thick metal, and is produced using a sophisticated pressure-casting tool. The metal is then sealed with a clear protective lacquer. The recessed area on the back is ergonomically moulded, and fits the hand superbly. It is made of finely textured plastic with very pleasant tactile qualities.
