CrystalConnect (元 CrystalCable)のCEOであられて 先日グループからの離脱が発表された Gabi Rynveld 氏 まさかのグループに復帰へ!!


Gabi Rynveld is back at IAH

Elst, Netherlands, February 2021 – Siltech and CrystalConnect are proud to announce the comeback of a familiar face in the Hi-Fi industry. Gabi Rynveld will be joining us again at IAH, supporting the PR, marketing and sales team.

For those who don’t know her, Gabi is a professional concert pianist, having performed in famous concert halls around the world since she was nine years old. Later in life, while raising five children, Gabi led sales and marketing for IAH, the company behind Siltech and Crystal Cable/CrystalConnect. (Gabi also founded Crystal Cable in 2004).

After about 15 years of building the two brands and creating a network of artists and industry friends, she left the company at the end of 2019 for a well-deserved sabbatical. She is happily married to IAH’s CEO Edwin Rynveld, sharing the love and passion for making and listening to music.

Two of their sons, Viktor (Operations Director) and Peter (Sales Manager), represent the family business’s second generation.

Those who do know her will probably remember her warm personality and passion for music. She has always maintained close contact with our industry friends and can’t wait to share her experiences with a broader audience of music and Hi-Fi enthusiasts.

The ultimate goal of high-end audio is to get the live music experience to your home. With our philosophy and products, we aim to let you feel all subtleties, emotions and miracles that music brings to the world.

Gabi will continue to transfer exactly that musical connection to all of you through personal communication, blogs, playlists, video’s, or other formats.

Her musical background, industry-wide network and long history with our brands make her an ideal face and voice to our partners, media and customers, providing valuable insights and her “personal touch”.

Gabi will also start regularly sharing exciting and engaging stories, experiences, and favourite music pieces via a blog on both Siltech and CrystalConnect websites, titled “Gabi’s Music Corner”.

We look forward to posting the first blog soon and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

McIntoshからMCD85 SACD/CDプレーヤー登場!!


2-Channel SACD/CD Player

  • 8-channel, 32-bit PCM/DSD Quad Balanced DAC
  • Plays commercial and burned CDs; DVD Data Discs
  • Fixed analog stereo outputs
  • USB Audio input supports up to DSD256
  • Coax and Optical digital inputs

Immerse yourself in your music with the MCD85 SACD/CD Player. The MCD85 with its open chassis design is not only a serious piece of music hardware, but it shows that you are serious about your love of music. With the great success of our similarly retro styled MC275 and MC1502 Vacuum Tube Amplifiers, MA252 and MA352 Integrated Amplifiers, and the warm reception of the recently introduced MC830 Solid State Amplifier and C8 Vacuum Tube Preamplifier that also have retro touches, it’s clear that many people want their home stereo system not to blend in, but instead to be distinctive looking. To be put on display. To be a conversation starter. To make the statement that “A Serious Music Lover Lives Here.” The MCD85 does all that. And more.

The MCD85 can play store bought SACDs and CDs as well as music from homemade CD 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. The USB Audio input supports up to DSD256 and DXD 384kHz, and can be used to stream digital music from a computer or other digital storage device. There’s also two coax and two optical digital inputs that support PCM signals up to 192kHz.

Conversion of the digital data stored on the discs or in the digital music stream into an analog signal for playback is performed by a quad balanced, 8-channel, 32-bit/192kHz Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC). Four DAC channels are dedicated to the left audio channel, and four to the right audio channel to ensure truly exceptional stereo sound reproduction.

Both balanced and unbalanced fixed analog stereo outputs are available to connect the MCD85 to your preamplifier, integrated amplifier, and other home audio system components. Thanks to its narrower width and balanced outputs, it can be placed close to your listening position for ease of loading discs, with long balanced cables connecting it to your audio system without fear of signal loss.

The MCD85 employs 2x read speed, meaning all discs placed in its sturdy die-cast tray are read at higher speeds, allowing their data to be stored in a buffer memory for better error correction and tracking. The tray features a new, custom front beveled nose to match the angle of the chassis and provides smooth and quiet disc handling. Disc reading is performed in the high-quality disc mechanism by a twin laser optical pickup that uses a single objective lens with two laser units, with each employing different wavelengths that are optimized for SACD and CD playback. Power Control and data ports allow for seamless integration with other McIntosh home audio system components.

A die-cast aluminum name badge is affixed to each side of the chassis. The front, top and rear of the chassis is polished to a mirror finish – just like on the aforementioned MC275, MC1502, MA252, MA352, MC830 and C8 – making the MCD85 a welcome and matching addition to any system using those models. But the MCD85 is not limited to systems using just those models as it has all the necessary connections and McIntosh design traits to fit into any McIntosh home audio system. The MCD85 features a black glass front panel with direct LED backlighting for improved appearance, silver trim, an illuminated logo, and rotary control knobs. Contact your local dealer to learn more.
