High-End CD player with tube output

The MCD 1050 is a very cleanly designed high-end CD player with integrated tube pre-amplifier! It delivers both highest precision from cleanly scanned signals and highest resolution for digitally sourced signals.
The pure CD drive ensures that optical media are precisely scanned – but the best things about this product are the digital inputs for scanning rates of up to 192 kHz/24 bits. Digital optical, coaxial and USB sources may be connected to the MCD 1050 to utilise its high-quality D/A converter section. This high-end player also possesses a switchable upsampling function to 192 kHz/24 bits for CD and digital inputs.

Uncluttered front

Like the hybrid integrated amplifier, the MCD 1050 high-end CD player also features a high-resolution, high-contrast OLED display. The components are perfectly matched not only in relation to acoustic performance but, rather, also in terms of looks.

Various connection options are provided for

The MA 1000 has four high-level inputs and a phono input that can be switched between MM and MC. A 3.5 mm jack input is also provided at the front to connect portable devices.
