CD Player With DAC - Musical Fidelity M3scd

OUR VERDICT - In a world where Wireless Music Streamers seem to be taking centre stage its refreshing to see that Musical Fidelity are keeping the torch burning for good old CD.

Not only are Musical Fidelity ensuring that you keep a space on your hifi rack for this trustworthy format they are rewarding you by making this a digital hub for your music streamers and computer audio. This is thanks to the 3 digital inputs, Coax (24bit 192khz) Optical (24bit 96khz) and the asynchronous USB type B input (24bit 96khz) This means that not only can you enjoy your Cd collection but you can plug in your PC or even your TV and enjoy a spectacular performance. The USB type B input means that you can plug in your music streamer such as the fabulous Innuos Zen Mini and enjoy your tunes without the need for an external DAC.

Lets move on to sound quality, as you would expect the Musical Fidelity M3scd sounds sublime. It manages to take whatever you can throw at it and make the listening experience enjoyable. There is a slight warmth with the M3scd that I prefer to the typically clinical sound from some manufacturers. Harsh edges appear to be rounded off and the bass more agile and authoritative making soundtracks sound natural and free flowing. All in all we think that the M3SCD is one of the best at this price point and well worthy of an audition. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

M3scd - Overview:

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.

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