This CD Transport has been upgraded!
The MCT-450 is a reference quality disc player, designed for connection to a high quality D/A converter or digital input.
McIntosh is known for the excellent reliability and sound quality of their disc players and the MCT-450 is no exception. When paired with a DAC like the D150, it is the equal of some of the finest CD / SACD players ever produced.
When used with a suitable McIntosh DAC / Pre-Amp, the MCT-450 is one of the few disc transports capable of digitally outputting the signal from an SACD, allowing you to get the best quality out of ALL of your discs. (This uses a proprietary connection, please check your DAC is compatible.) e.g D150, C47, C1100, C52
