MCD301 

The McIntosh MCD301 SACD/CD Player delivers breathtaking fidelity from both standard compact discs and SACD’s, “raising the bar” for both technical and sonic performance. Topping the list of features is a new, super-quiet SACD/CD drive mechanism that is completely enclosed in a die-cast, wrap-around chassis for resonance free operation. A die-cast aluminum disc tray lends a special touch of quality that you will appreciate every time you load a disc.
