THE SPEAKER SHACK AWARDS THE MCINTOSH MCD550 SACD/CD PLAYER WITH AN OUTSTANDING PRODUCT AWARD
The high performance MCD550 SACD/CD Player has everything you need to help you rediscover your valuable CD collection. Listening to Roger Waters' The Wall – Live in Berlin on SACD during their review, The Speaker Shack calls the CD layer "stunning" while the SACD layer "is elevated to a new level of refinement in sound quality" that brings a more spacious feeling to the recording. "The impact that each song has is so uncompressed and sets this player apart as one of the finest SACD players I have listened to."
"I have had the pleasure of listening to many high-end CD players and also SACD players over the years and the McIntosh Labs MCD550 is one of the most musically engaging players that I have heard. It gives a performance which is refined and polished to the highest order." It "must be at the top of any serious audiophile looking for a multi format player. It breathes new life into CDs and brings out the best in SACDs."
