Rediscover your valuable CD collection with the MCD550 SACD/CD Player. This high performance SACD/CD player has everything you need for hours of listening enjoyment. The MCD550 utilizes an 8-channel, 32-bit/192kHz PCM/DSD digital-to-analog converter (DAC) with wide dynamic range and extremely low distortion. The 8-channel DAC is used in Quad Balanced mode, which utilizes 4 DAC channels per audio channel, allowing music at all levels to be reproduced with extreme precision and elegance. It can decode PCM signals from CDs and the digital inputs, and DSD signals from SACDs.
Both fixed and variable balanced and unbalanced outputs are present, offering you extreme flexibility in connecting the MCD550 to your system. The variable outputs allow for direct connection to an amplifier without requiring a separate preamplifier. Also available are three digital inputs: a coax, an optical and a USB input that allows for direct streaming of computer stored music at up to 24-bits and 192kHz. Coax and optical outputs are available if you want to send the audio signal to a preamplifier or home theater processor.
