The M6SCD is a superb performer by any measure. It uses a 32 bit DAC with 192 kHz upsampling and delivers a musical performance faithful to even the most complex recordings. Retained from the M6CD model is the same fabulous disc loading mechanism which proved to be both a great performer and reliable in long term use. The M6SCD comes with a range of digital inputs too. This means it is both a world-class CD player but also a phenomenal stand-alone DAC too. Both Coax (RCA) digital inputs work up to 24 bit 192 kHz while the 2 x Optical (Toslink) and asynchronous USB input works up to 24 bit 96 kHz. It also has digital outputs on both Coax (RCA) and Optical (Toslink). The M6SCD offers outstanding sound quality, excellent disc readability and world-class technical performance.
