Product Information

M3scd Dual CD Player and DAC

The M3scd is a CD Player and stand-alone DAC with sublime performance. It is a member of Musical Fidelity's M3 Series.


M3scd Features:

The new M3scd is a considerable step up from the M3CD it replaces.  A new disc loading mechanism offers traditional draw and great disc playability.

While the M3scd offers outstanding CD playback performance it also acts as a digital hub. This means other digital sources can be connected and played using The M3scd's internal DAC system. For maximum connectivity it offers Coax (RCA), Optical (Toslink) and Asynchronus USB inputs. The Coax input accepts signals up to 192 kHz 24 bit, while the Optical input works up to 96 kHz 24 bit. It also comes with digital outputs in both Optical and Coax formats.

The new M3scd’s technical performance is also much improved over the previous model and its sound quality greatly improved too. Owners will be delighted by the M3scd’s clarity and musical insight.

The improved performance and increased flexibility will make the M3scd an attractive option for both music lovers and Hi-Fi enthusiasts alike.
