McIntosh MCD12000 Reference CD Player Arriving Soon

McIntosh has released their new MCD12000 reference CD Player.

The McIntosh MCD12000 is soon to be on-demo and in-stock at Pearl Audio.  We have ordered a demonstrator and stock units.  McIntosh has given us a tentative ship window of May 2022.  Once the MCD12000's have shipped from McIntosh, we will update our front page McIntosh in-stock inventory carousel.

Two-in-One: A Reference Level DAC and a Reference Level CD Player.

Bring all your digital music to life in your home audio system with the MCD12000 SACD/CD Player. While classified as a CD player, it is better to think of the MCD12000 as a reference level Digital-to-Analog convertor (DAC) that includes reference level SACD/CD playback capabilities. Music played through any of the MCD12000's digital inputs or from compact discs is processed by professional grade 8-channel DACs designed for premium audiophile performance and recording studios. The MCD12000 is the perfect DAC and SACD/CD Player to use with the reference level C12000 Preamplifier.

There are seven digital inputs on the MCD12000: two coax, two optical, plus one USB (Type B) for computer based audio, one AES/EBU, and one MCT input which can be used with any of our existing MCT SACD/CD Transports that you may already have. The coax and optical inputs support up to 24-bit/192kHz. The USB input supports up to 32-bit/384kHz, as well as DSD512 and DXD384kHz.

The tentative ship time from McIntosh is sometime in May 2022.  If you would like to schedule an audition or have any questions call us at (503) 222-2599.
