McIntosh has been crafting high-end audio technology for seven decades. Like every product, the MCD350 is built in the New York-based factory that McIntosh has used for over 60 years. Renowned and respected around the world, these products continue to set the standard for cutting-edge performance, unmatched sound and long-term durability. This particular home CD player is an example of McIntosh’s ingenuity, craftsmanship, originality and service.
Today, assembling shortcuts and outsourcing is more common than ever. The MCD350 takes an uncompromising approach marked by hands-on craftsmanship, audio expertise and a relentless passion for offering the best sound experience possible. These notable characteristics set the product apart. While most home CD players try to copy the competition, the MCD350 2-Channel SACD/CD Player leads through sheer innovation.
The MCD350 excels over the competition with a twin-laser optical drive featuring a single objective lens that gathers information with extreme precision. The separate laser parts are dedicated to both SACD and CD playback, making the multi disc CD player a double threat regardless of which format you choose. The additional rigid, aluminum die-cast tray ensures uncompromising stability, vibration-resistant control and quiet function.

This is complemented by a durable, sturdy, statement making, partially polished stainless-steel chassis.

The design as well as the engineering are crafted with precision and made to provide years of audio enjoyment.
