For A Serious Music Lover


  • Immerse yourself in your music with the MCD85 SACD/CD Player. The
    MCD85 with its open chassis design is not only a serious piece of music
    hardware, but it shows that you are serious about your love of music.
  • With the success of our similarly retro styled products, it’s clear that
    many people want their home stereo system not to blend in, but instead
    to be distinctive looking. To be put on display. To be a conversation starter.
    To make the statement that “A Serious Music Lover Lives Here.” The
    MCD85 does all that. And more.
  • Plays store bought SACDs and CDs as well as music from homemade
    CD or DVD Data Discs. Compatible with numerous file formats.
  • USB Audio input supports up to DSD256 and DXD384kHz, and can be
    used to stream digital music from a computer or digital storage device.
  • Features quad balanced, 8-channel, 32-bit/192kHz Digital-to-Analog
    Converter (DAC). Four DAC channels are dedicated to each audio channel
    to ensure truly exceptional stereo sound reproduction.
  • Balanced and unbalanced fixed analog stereo outputs.
  • Disc handling is smooth and quiet thanks to an advanced disc transport
    with a precision die-cast aluminum tray.
  • 2x read speed allows disc data to be stored in a buffer memory for a
    better error correction and tracking.
  • Power Control and data ports allow for seamless integration with other
    McIntosh home audio system components.
