McIntosh MVP871 CD Player - New Laser and Modified for Redbook CD's


If you're only interested in playing Redbook CD's, then this might be your most cost effective high fidelity option. 

The latest McIntosh CD player will set you back three times this price. And with the combination of incredible McIntosh demand and untimely supply shortages, you'll be waiting a bit before it arrives.

Plus not only did we install a brand new laser, we took out all of the DVD circuitry that was superfluous to improve pure redbook playback performance. We then covered up the rear openings with a custom form-fitting plate.

Included with your purchase is this McIntosh MVP871 CD Player as pictured plus its original McIntosh remote control.

* Please note the remote suffers from the typical "gumminess" affecting similar remotes from this era. The back is slightly sticky as a result but otherwise this remote functions properly. If this is an issue you can always use your compatible McIntosh A/V Control Center/Preamplifier remote, or purchase a modern universal replacement by contacting McIntosh directly. 

* This MVP871 was modified in-house for outstanding Redbook/Standard CD Support & Playback Only. 

** However this MVP871 does in fact playback HDCD discs from our basic testing.

Standout McIntosh Features Include:
• 24 BIT Burr Brown Audio DACs x Three!
The MVP871 has three built-in Burr Brown 2-channel Digital to Analog Converters are capable of sampling rates up to 192kHz with 24 Bits of resolution.

• Digital Audio Outputs

• Special Power Supply
A fully regulated Power Supply, with a special R-Core Power Transformer, ensures stable noise free operation even though the power line varies.

• Fiber Optic Solid State Front Panel Illumination
The Illumination of the Glass Front Panel is accomplished by the combination of custom designed Fiber Optic Light Diffusers and extra long life Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). This provides even Front Panel Illumination and is designed to ensure the pristine beauty of the MVP871 will be retained for many years.
