McIntoshから MCD12000 2-Channel SACD/CD Player 登場!!

未分類

McIntosh
MCD12000 2-Channel SACD/CD Player

A reference level DAC that includes a reference level CD Player
(2) 32-bit/8-channel professional grade DACs
7 digital inputs
Balanced & unbalanced analog outputs in both solid-state & vacuum tube configurations

Two-in-One: A Reference Level DAC and a Reference Level CD Player.

Bring all your digital music to life in your home audio system with the MCD12000 SACD/CD Player. While classified as a CD player, it is better to think of the MCD12000 as a reference level Digital-to-Analog convertor (DAC) that includes reference level SACD/CD playback capabilities. Music played through any of the MCD12000’s digital inputs or from compact discs is processed by professional grade 8-channel DACs designed for premium audiophile performance and recording studios. The MCD12000 is the perfect DAC and SACD/CD Player to use with the reference level C12000 Preamplifier.

At the heart of the MCD12000 are two ESS SABRE PRO ES9038PRO 32-bit/8-channel DACs, with one DAC dedicated to the left audio channel, and the other DAC dedicated to the right audio channel. Each DAC uses ESS’ patented HyperStream® II architecture and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator to deliver an unprecedented performance level that will satisfy the needs of the most demanding digital audio applications. Each ES9038PRO is configured in Octal-Balanced Mono mode where the DAC’s eight outputs are used to drive the analog audio, resulting in outstanding sound quality. Separate digital and analog power supplies keep the power and audio signals free from cross contamination, while a specially constructed R-Core power transformer minimizes noise radiation.

There are seven digital inputs on the MCD12000: two coax, two optical, plus one USB (Type B) for computer based audio, one AES/EBU, and one MCT input which can be used with any of our existing MCT SACD/CD Transports that you may already have. The coax and optical inputs support up to 24-bit/192kHz. The USB input supports up to 32-bit/384kHz, as well as DSD512 and DXD384kHz.

McIntosh MCD12000 SACD/CD Player
The MCD12000 offers both balanced and unbalanced fixed analog outputs in both solid-state and vacuum tube configurations. This abundance of output options gives you the flexibility to decide which to use based on the music selection, the audio components in the rest of your home audio system, and your personal sound preferences. A pair of 60dB output meters show the signal level that’s being delivered from the analog outputs of each channel. While the volume is controlled by your preamplifier, integrated amplifier, or other control device, the meters on the MCD12000 will respond to the music being played through it and move back and forth accordingly.

McIntosh MCD12000 SACD/CD Player
All outputs are driven by discrete amplifiers or a blend of vacuum tubes and discrete amplifiers. For vacuum tube output, one 12AT7 tube and one 12AX7A tube are assigned to each the left and right audio channel. Solid-state output is via a discrete balanced op-amp. A digital coax and optical output are included for added flexibility to connect the MCD12000 to the rest of your home audio system.

McIntosh MCD12000 SACD/CD Player
In addition to commercial SACDs and CDs, the MCD12000 can also play music from user generated CDs or DVD Data Discs. Numerous file formats can be played from these discs including AAC, AIFF, ALAC, DSD (up to DSD128), FLAC, MP3, WAV, and WMA. A twin laser optical pickup assures optimal reading of all common disc types. The disc transport has a precision die-cast aluminum tray that provides smooth and quiet disc handling, while an advanced digital servo provides fast, quiet and accurate operation. The disc’s audio data is read at twice the normal rate ensuring better disc tracking and error correction processing. Power Control and data ports allow for seamless Integration with other McIntosh system components.

The Digital-to-Analog convertor (DAC) in the MCD12000 has received Roon Tested designation from Roon Labs, which can be especially useful if you have an extensive library of digital music. As a Roon Tested partner, McIntosh has provided equipment to Roon for testing with a variety of different operating systems and computers, and shared information about its design and capabilities.
The MCD12000 is wrapped in classic McIntosh styling. The bottom part of its chassis is made from stainless steel that is polished to a mirror finish; the top part is made from hairline brushed black Titanium stainless steel that matches the C12000 and brings an enhanced degree of richness and refinement to your home audio system. The front features our timeless black glass panel, illuminated logo, knobs, push button controls, and custom machined brushed aluminum handles that match the C12000. On the top is a glass panel listing performance specs and a block diagram of the audio signal path. A remote control is included. Contact your local dealer to learn more.

Jorma Power Filter Reference

ミュンヘンハイエンドショウにてワールドプレミア

Distortion is the enemy
Our award-winning cables reduce distortion by shielding your signal from unwanted frequencies, but your mains supply is a source of distortion itself.

Jorma Power is the serious end of protection for your high end system and Jorma Power Filter Reference is here to deal with this.

Clean sound
Our first power product, Jorma Power Filter Reference cleans up your supply, removing noise and direct current to protect your hifi system. Without this, sound can be harsh, boomy and inconsistent.

No more, no less
The DC-blocker prevents boomy bass and mechanical hum from large transformers, leaving bass that is tight and dynamic.

Top performance
High frequency ripple cancellation substantially lowers noise floor and sibilance in any HiFi device meaning your cymbals ring with clarity.

Zero interference
Three separate filtered zones allow your entire system to be shielded from mains irregularities and interference between mutual hifi components.

Rock solid protection
The construction is mechanically robust, heavy-weight and sturdy. This prevents acoustic interference from entering mains circuitry.

Details

ワウ・フラッター(回転ムラ)の支配的な要因であるレコードの偏心を取り除かない限りワウ・フラッター(回転ムラ)を減らすことは出来ない
レコードの偏心から発生するワウはターンテーブル自体から発生しているワウ・フラッターよりも遥かに大きいため、レコード再生システムにおいて原音を忠実に再生する為にはレコードの偏心を可能な限り減らす必要があります。
仮に偏心幅が0.34mmあった場合、ターンテーブル自体のワウ・フラッター値が良いもので0.008%程度であることを考えると偏心により発生するワウフラッター値は一桁以上大きく約20倍にもなります。これがどういうことを意味するかというと、偏心から発生するワウによってターンテーブルシステムの全体のワウ・フラッター値はターンテーブル単体のワウ・フラッター値よりも20倍以上悪化しているということで、レコード自体の偏心を取り除かない限りどんなに高価で回転精度の良いターンテーブルを購入したとしてもシステム全体としてのワウ・フラッター(回転ムラ)を減らすことは出来ません。
ワウ・フラッター(回転ムラ)の元になっているレコードの偏心を取り除くことで、システム全体のワウフラッター(回転ムラ)を劇的に減少させることが可能となりご使用中のターンテーブルシステムの真価が発揮されるようになります。

偏心があることで 1,周波数の変動が起きる、2,カートリッジが大きく揺さぶられる といった問題が発生する
ワウ・フラッターの値が高い(回転ムラが大きい)と大きく分けて2つの問題が発生します。
一つ目は回転が不安定であることによって正しい周波数で音が再生されないということです。仮に3kHzの音がレコードに刻まれていたとしてもワウ・フラッターが大きいと3kHzの音として再生されません。これは録音されたパッケージを忠実に再生する為の再生システムとしては非常に大きな問題となります。
また偏心しているレコードをアームがトレースする場合カートリッジは左右に大きく揺さぶられ、動作中心から大きく離れた状態でトレースを行うことになり左右チャンネル間の位相ずれが発生し、聴感上も音の濁りや音像の不安定さをもたらしてしまいます。
このような問題を解決する為にもレコードの偏心は可能な限り取り除く必要があります。

3STEPで調整可能
ES-001偏心検出スタビライザーは測定→調整→再スタートの3STEPで偏心検出及び調整が可能です。

STEP1調整
レコードプレーヤーを回転させた状態で、片手でスタビライザーの上部を抑えスタビライザーの回転を止めた状態にすると、スタビライザーが回転を検知し測定モードに移行します。
測定モードに移行するとスタビライザーの外周部の表示が回転し始めて[画面タップで測定開始]ボタンが表示されます。
次に[画面タップで測定開始]ボタンを押すと[測定中]のボタンに表示が変わり約2秒で測定が完了します。

STEP2 調整
測定が完了したらレコードプレーヤーを停止させ、スタビライザーの画面を見ながら十字マーク(回転中心)を真ん中の絶対中心位置に向かってレコード盤を押して十字マークを可能な限り絶対的中心位置に近づけてください。
画面の色(外周部、十字マーク、Afterの表示バー)は偏心の度合いを表しております。

STEP3 再スタート
絶対的中心位置に十字マーク(回転中心)が合ったら再度レコードプレーヤーを回転させて偏心が減少していることを確認し、レコードを再生してください。

Availability: 1st September 2022

Following the introduction of the D1.5 CD/SACD player/transport, CH Precision is proud to announce the release of the partnering DAC, the new C1.2. As impressive as the D1.5 has already proved, the C1.2 represents an even bigger advance in musical performance.

Key features:

Four-fold increase in processing power.
Revised and refined proprietary PEtER algorithm also introduces fixed-point processing.
New sophisticated power-management software reduces system noise levels.
All-new MEMS-based, thermally compensated and shunt regulated master clock.
Discrete, local regulation of DSP and FGPA chips.
Fully MQA compliant for disc and file replay.
Improved, by-passable hybrid digital/analog volume control.
Retaining the elegant form factor and unprecedented functionality, versatility and configurability of its predecessor the C1, the C1.2 nevertheless represents a root-and-branch update/re-engineering of the digital signal path, lifting musical performance to entirely new levels. The massive increase in processing power has allowed us to significantly evolve the PEtER spline filter algorithm, introducing fixed point processing. An all-new MEMS-based master clock has increased clock accuracy and reduced timing error, while massively increased local regulation along with sophisticated power-management has significantly reduced the digital noise floor. Input compatibility has been fully updated and now includes full MQA compliance for both disc and file replay.

That step up in musical performance and capability is accompanied by the same user configurable input topology (so that owners can buy only the inputs they need), the same expandable system capability (allowing owners to add external power supplies, a T1 Time reference master clock or even upgrade

the C1.2 to true three-box, dual-monaural DAC form) and even the capacity to accept/switch analog inputs, making the C1.2 a true System Controller.

No DAC left behind!

Best of all – and true to our upgradable/expandable design ethos – existing C1s can be fully upgraded to the C1.2 standard for the difference in price between the new and the older model, ensuring that the investment made by our end-users is both protected and updated, maintaining current, cutting edge digital performance without cost penalty.

Availability: 1st September 2022
