  • This high performance SACD/CD player has everything you need for hours of listening enjoyment. It utilizes an 8-channel, 32-bit, 192kHz PCM/DSD digital-to-analog converter with wide dynamic range and extremely low distortion. The 8 channel DAC is used in Quad Balanced mode, allowing music to be reproduced with extreme precision and elegance. The MCD550 reads your discs at a higher speed and stores the data in a buffer memory for better error correction and tracking, thus increasing overall audio performance.
