Hear all there is to hear from your existing CD collection. Let the MDA1000 modify your music data stream from 16 bits to 24 bits, and to a sampling rate of 768kHz all while still in the digital domain. Then the MDA1000’s eight, 24 bit Burr Brown digital converter take things from there. This processing allows such gentile filtering to the converted signal that the original musicality comes through, instead of the sound of the digital circuits themselves. The difference is easily heard. Listen and you will be amazed at how older discs rival, or often exceed, the sound of the new “higher resolution format” discs.
The MDA1000 D/A Converter and its matching MCD1000 CD Transport represent the introduction of a new and elite product category from McIntosh. The philosophy behind this enhanced level of McIntosh products is nothing but the best…to deliver the absolute highest possible performance without design constraints. Available only through McIntosh Authorized Premier Dealers, the MDA1000 and the MCD1000 are merely the beginning of this exclusive line.
Seven Digital Inputs
3 Coaxial Inputs on RCA Jacks
3 Optical Inputs
1 Balanced Digital in on XLR Jack
Balanced (XLR) Outputs
Unbalanced (RCA) Analog Outputs
Front Panel Volume Control with
Optional Bypass Function
3D Glass Front Panel
Fiber Optic Lighting
Multiple layers of regulation provide clean power to all critical circuits. The power transformer has the lowest noise field of any available.
Each D to A Converter is shielded to avoid any chance of hum or noise getting through.
Precision front panel and remote volume control allow the MDA1000 to function as a preamplifier in an all-digital system. Setup programming allows volume control bypass if desired.
FRONT PANEL DESIGN
3D front panel glass design is illuminated with long-life, cool-running fiber optics that make operation in low light easier. Silk screening on the inside of the glass front panel prevents wear of the nomenclature, ensuring lasting beauty and highest resale value…a McIntosh hallmark feature.
