MCD 1050

High-End CD player with tube output stage and digital audio inputs

The MCD 1050 is a very cleanly designed high-end CD player with integrated tube pre-amplifier! It delivers both highest precision from cleanly scanned signals and highest resolution for digitally sourced signals.
The pure CD drive ensures that optical media are precisely scanned – but the best things about this product are the digital inputs for scanning rates of up to 192 kHz/24 bits. Digital optical, coaxial and USB sources may be connected to the MCD 1050 to utilise its high-quality D/A converter section. This high-end player also possesses a switchable upsampling function to 192 kHz/24 bits for CD and digital inputs.

Test review (stereoplay | 08/2014)

Price/performance: OUTSTANDING
Sound: ABSOLUTELY TOP CLASS
Overall rating: VERY GOOD


Conclusion

"Excellent build, the greatest of care in production and choice of individual components along with grand audiophile potential characterise this Magnat combo, which is made up of the MA 1000 amplifier and the MCD 1050 CD player. The fact that no compromise was made between size and sound has really paid off. All this costs a few euros more than other components but you'll never be able to find such an enormously good price-performance ratio again.."

Test review (lite | 02/2014)


Conclusion

"The pleasant and harmonious but natural sound of Magnat's stereo combination revealed that the MA 1000 and MCD 1050 are quite high-quality partners for playing back almost any type of source material. The ability of the MCD 1050 to also play back HiRes files from computers and notebooks via USB showed that the components have not shut themselves off from the modern age. Solid build, complex technology and timeless appearance are additional plus points for the stereo components."

Test review (area dvd | 02/2014)


Conclusion

"Magnat's elegant combination impresses with its premium workmanship and excellent musicality. The small Quantum Edelstein speakers proved to be the surprise package in our test, as they deliver a wonderfully vivid sound pattern despite their small size; the only thing lacking is a slight degree of emphasis in the bass range."
