McIntosh has launched the MCT450, a new SACD/CD transport. It offers digital balanced (24bit/192kHz), coaxial (24bit/96kHz), optical (24bit/192kHz) and DIN outputs when connecting to partnering system components. The MCT450 employs a DIN output for connection to selected McIntosh models such as the new D150 digital preamp.
The transport is compatible with all common disc types including: SACD; CD; CD-R and CD-RW (MP3 and WMA). A twin-laser optical pickup aids disc-reading, while 2x read speed provides improved data-reading from damaged discs.
Further features include a premium aluminium die-cast CD tray plus power control and data ports to control the unit’s operational state via other McIntosh system components. The entire unit is housed in a classic McIntosh-styled polished stainless steel chassis with a black-glass front panel and brushed-aluminium end caps. The MCT450 sells for £4,495.
