McIntosh MCT80 SACD/CD transport: introduces disc playback

21st August 2017

McIntosh has launched the MCT80 CD/SACD transport, reading the disc’s audio data at twice the normal rate

The unit features a twin-laser optical pickup with a die-cast aluminium tray plus an advanced digital servo.

Various disc types can be played, including SACD, CD, CD-R/RW (MP3 and WMA) plus user-generated DVD or CD data discs formatted with DSD (up to DSD128), WAV (up to 24bit/192kHz), FLAC and MP3.

The MCT80 has three digital outputs: coaxial and optical (both supporting high-resolution 24bit/192kHz audio) plus McIntosh’s proprietary MCT connection which offers a secure DSD connection for high-res SACD audio.

For general CD playback, the MCT80 can be used with any DAC with a digital coax or optical input.

The MCT80 features classic McIntosh styling with a polished stainless steel chassis, black glass front panel, an illuminated logo and aluminium end-caps. Price is £4,495.
