McIntosh MCD301 SACD/CD Player - Serviced
Wonderful CD player from McIntosh capable of playing any CD format including SACD.
Features variable line outputs so you can technically use it as a digital preamp by simply adding an amp and speakers.
We just serviced this piece by replacing every CD players most unreliable part - the belts.
There are 3 of them in this model which we ordered directly from McIntosh (no cheap parts used).
Condition is superb with no significant signs of use.
The current CD Player from Mc is now $7,500 with no real improvements.
This listing also comes complete with the McIntosh special shipping carton and remote control.
McIntosh Performance Features Include:
• Front Panel Level Control
The Level Control allows varying the music volume level with headphones, matching the volume level of the MCD301 with other components in a system and can drive any Power Amplifier directly.
• Balanced Outputs
The MCD301 has both variable and fixed Balanced Outputs, permitting long cable lengths without a loss in sound quality.
The Variable Output Connections provide up to 6 Volts. This is more than enough signal to drive any Power Amplifier directly; forming a high quality SACD/CD Disc Playback System.
• Multi-Bit Digital to Analog Converter
The 24-bit, 192kHz Digital to Analog Converter has a wide dynamic range and extremely low distortion.
• Twin Laser Pickup
The MCD301 incorporates two laser elements, with different wavelengths, that are focused through one lens assembly. This unique design allows reading both the CD and Super Audio Compact Disc (SACD) Discs Formats.
• Advanced Transport
The MCD301 has a new transport with a Die Cast Mechanism Base and Disc Tray. It has the latest in advanced digital servo for faster, quieter and accurate operation. The Disc Audio Data is read at twice the normal rate insuring better disc tracking and error correction processing.
• Special Power Supply
The Linear Power Supply has both a special R-Core Power Transformer and Multiple Regulators to ensure stable noise free operation even though the power line varies.
