Great sounding and super robust CD player from McIntosh circa late 1980's (Mc 2nd generation CD Player). I actually have this exact same player in one of my vintage Mc setups and I love how responsive it is.

We find that early generation CD players like this one were built much more robustly than subsequent ones where price cutting came into effect. This results in a much more reliable player that outlasts all the others.

Super condition inside and out, and plays discs without issues or drama.

Display is nice and bright, all buttons are responsive, and the MCD7005 has both fixed and variable outputs so technically you could use it without a preamp.

The SkyFi Testing Process for CD Players:

We start with a visual inspection of all internal components to make sure that there are no signs of heat stress or damage. Capacitors are checked for telltale signs of predictive failure including bulging, shrunken wrappers, or physical leakage. We also inspect resistors and other passive components for signs of overheating. When the unit is first powered on we check the drawer mechanism function.

After the visual inspection we connect the CD Player’s RCA outputs to our Sencore PA81 Power Analyzer which simulates a real world input impedance and allows us to monitor the output on an oscilloscope. We start with a test CD with precision test signals to verify proper output on both channels. If the CD player has balanced outputs these are also tested at this time. If this check passes, we move onto evaluation with actual music CDs. We listen for clicks, skips, and drops during playback.

At this time we also check the transport functions including skip, ff, rw, play, pause, repeat, and programming if applicable. If the unit has a remote control, all remote control functions are verified. If the CD player is capable of SACD playback we test its ability to read SACD layers on multiple discs including standard and hybrid SACDs.

At this time we also check the unit’s digital outputs were applicable. If SACD layers are being properly read we should see the digital outputs mute during playback. On redbook CD playback we verify that each digital output maintains proper lock on our bench DAC.

After bench testing is completed, CD players are set up for testing on our long term test rig. During extended testing we make sure that unit can play through several different discs from beginning to end with no skips or lock ups.
