Playback Designs MPS - 5 SACD/CD Player / DAC with USB-X Box included - 230V Europe (Price Reduced)
This is one of the best SACD/CD players on the market today.
It's also one of the most versatile players including a full-featured DAC capable of decoding HR (PCM and DSD) music files.
For sale is the current version with PS upgrade and latest firmware.
Also included is the new USB-X Box.
The MPS-5 uses a modified TEAC Esoteric SACD/CD transport that can read CDs/CDRs and SACD.
On the back it has analogue Balanced (XLR), Unbalanced (RCA) and BNC (50 Ohm) output connectors.
Digital inputs are AES/EBU (XLR), S/PDIF Coax, S/PDIF TosLink and USB.
The DAC is capable of receiving signals with resolutions/sample rates up to 24-bit/192kHz.
With the new proprietary external USB Extender Box (USB-X) included in the sale you have the ability to playback super high resolution music files up to 24/384kHz PCM and 6.1MHz DSD.
It is really in MINT (as new) condition with no scratches marks or dings whatsoever.
I rate it as 9/10 just to be on the prudent side but it really deserves a 10/10 rating.
It comes complete with remote, manual and original double shipping box.
I'm the first owner and bought it new from the official distributor.
It has low hours.
