A McIntosh MCD1000 Reference CD Transport and MDA1000 Reference
Digital/Analog Converter was demonstration models. Production date of the two
units is 2008 and the MCD1000 was sent back to McIntosh about 7 months ago to
replace the laser. The MCD1000 was displayed
for one month. Both units has been packed in the box since then. Missing are the remote control. Original manuals and all the packaging comes with both the
units. The two items is a 8.5 out of 10
condition. You may rate the condition
higher than me after looking at the pictures but I am rating the condition at a level of expectation as
the potential owner would not be disputing what condition they are . Price is set to accommodate for no remote and to sell!

McIntosh Reference MCD1000 Transport & MDA000
Digital To Analog Converter
The McIntosh MDA1000 D/A Converter offers a highly
refined Balanced/Parallel Circuit utilizing eight of Burr Brown’s most
sophisticated 24 Bit Digital to Analog (D/A) chips. Combine a MDA1000 with a
McIntosh MCD1000 CD Transport and you will enjoy a playback system of
• • • • Shielded 768kHz Up Sampling Module The McIntosh designed
Up Sampling Module converts all of the incoming Digital Signals to the higher
frequency of 768kHz with 24Bit resolution before the Digital to Analog process
• • • • • Shielded 24 Bit Digital to Analog Circuits The MDA1000
utilizes McIntosh’s own specially designed 24-bit Balanced Parallel Digital to
Analog Converter Circuitry operating at 768kHz. This offers the widest possible
dynamic range, lowest noise level and extremely low distortion. All of this
produces sound quality that is truly exceptional.
• • • • • Special Analog Filter and Output Amplifier The third
order Butterworth gentle slope analog filter removes any remaining digital
artifacts from the output signal. The low impedance Output Amplifer drives both
the Balanced and Unbalanced Output Connections.
• • • • • Balanced and Unbalanced Outputs Balanced connections
guard against induced noise and allow long cable runs without compromising
sound quality. There are also Unbalanced connections for components without
• • • • • Precision Tracking Volume Control Volume levels are
controlled by a Precision Digitally Controlled Attenuator System with a
tracking accuracy of 0.1dB. There is also a Volume Control Bypass Mode for a
fixed output level.
• • • • • Alphanumeric Fluorescent Display The Multifunction
Front Panel Display indicates the Source Selection, Volume Levels and the Setup
Mode Selections. The displays intensity is fully adjustable.
Digital Inputs with Title Reassignment The MDA1000 has
provisions for three Coaxial Digital In
• • • • • Digital Inputs with Title Reassignment The MDA1000 has
provisions for three Coaxial Digital Inputs, three Optical Digital Inputs and
one XRL Balanced Digital Input. Any of the seven inputs can have their Input
Title reassigned to match the sources connected to the MDA1000.
The McIntosh MCD1000 CD Transport offers the latest in
technology and provides state of the art reproduction of Compact Discs. A full
complement of performance features together with the advanced mechanical design
ensures many years of smooth trouble free operation.
• • • • Advanced Transport The MCD1000 has a custom designed
precision-machined metal disc tray for safe and gentle disc handling. The
servocontrolled transport with a shock resistant suspension incorporating the
latest in error correction circuitry for reading imperfect discs.
• • • • • Four Playback Modes The MCD1000 Compact Disc Player
allows for Disc Playback, Intro Playback, Program Playback and Random Playback.
• • • • • Front Panel Display The Display indicates the Disc,
Track and Time information along with the Playback Mode in use.
• • • • • Remote Power, Data Control and External IR Input
Remote Power Control In/Out allows the MCD1000 to turn On/Off with a McIntosh
Audio Control Center. The Data Port Input allows Remote Control Operation from
another McIntosh Component. The IR Input allows for the connection of an IR
• • • • • Special Power Supply A fully regulated Power Supply
with a special R-Core Power Transformer, ensures stable noise free operation
even though the power line varies.
• • • • • Fiber Optic Solid State Front Panel Illumination The
Illumination of the Glass Front Panel, with a three dimensional look, is
accomplished by the combination of custom designed Fiber Optic Light Diffusers
and extra long life Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). This provides even Front
Panel Illumination and is designed to ensures the pristine beauty of the
MCD1000 will be retained for many years.
• • • • • Machined Top and Side Panels The Top and Side of the
MCD1000 are machined from thick aluminum panels with a smooth black anodized
finish. In the recessed area of the Top Panel is a screened glass panel with a
block diagram of the MCD1000’s circuitry.
