CD Transport

  • Manufactured 1999 - 2000
  • Single Disc

    As distinctions among CD players grow ever finer, those seeking the ultimate in sonic purity find salvation through separation – one box for the transport, one box for the converter. The MCD751’s advanced optomechanical design makes it the last CD transport you may ever need. It connects directly to the McIntosh MDA700 D/A Converter or to any DAC-equipped component with a digital input.

    Featured Technologies

    PRECISION TRANSPORT MECHANISM. The Vibration-Free Rigid Disc Clamping System uses a CD-size, die-cast aluminum overhead turntable with a precision helicoid clamp that provides superior rotational stability. The motor bridge and clamping system are made of high-density material containing polyester fibers and ceramic powders to suppress spurious vibrations.

    DIGITAL SERVO CONTROL MOTORS. The Brushless Hall Effect drive spindle motor for disc rotation and the linear laser assembly motor ensure the integrity of the digital data.

    DUAL OUTPUTS. The two digital outputs (coaxial and optical) provide connection flexibility and also can be used to feed two D/A converters simultaneously.

    DATA IN/OUT. These allow the MCD751 to operate the MDA700 D/A Converter via remote and to connect to other McIntosh system components.

    REMOTE POWER CONTROL. This enables the MCD751 to turn on/off with other McIntosh system components.

    REGULATED POWER SUPPLY. A fully regulated power supply with a special power transformer ensures stable, noise-free operation even when the power line varies.
