D1100 on McIntoshin Referenssitason DAC ja etuvahvistin samassa paketissa. Monipuoliset digitaaliset tuloliitännät kaikkia lähteitäsi varten. 32-bittiset 8-kanavaiset DA-muuntimet täysin balansoidulla kytkennällä, huolehtii laadukkaimmasta äänimaailmasta kaikista digilähteistä.

The D1100 Digital Preamplifier is a reference level stereo preamplifier and digital-to-analog converter (DAC). Its 8-channel, 32-bit DAC is used in Quad Balanced mode with half of it dedicated to the left audio channel and the other half to the right channel. It’s the most advanced DAC we’ve ever used and delivers an unprecedented level of performance so that all your digital music is reproduced with exceptional accuracy and authenticity.

Enough inputs – 9 to be exact – are included to keep even the largest digital system connected as 3 optical, 3 coaxial (2 RCA and 1 BNC), plus 1 each of MCT, AES/EBU and USB inputs are on board. The USB input accepts up to 32-bit/384kHz signals and supports DSD64, DSD128, DSD256, DXD 352.8kHz and DXD 384kHz playback1. All the other inputs accept up to 24-bit/192kHz. The MCT input is a McIntosh exclusive and allows for enjoying to the high resolution audio found on SACDs via the MCT500 SACD/CD Transport. Three sets of balanced and unbalanced stereo outputs connect the D1100 to your system. One set of outputs has fixed volume while the other 2 have variable volume; the variable outputs can also be switched on and off for additional user configurability.

The D1100 is designed for ease of use: all inputs can be renamed; its 4 data ports and 4 power control triggers are fully programmable; and it has both IR and RS232 external control. For personal listening, Headphone Crossfeed Director (HXD®) will bring a new depth and spatiality to your music.

The D1100 is a full featured, fully functional self-contained unit that can be used independently of any other preamplifier. But thanks to McIntosh’s engineering prowess, it can also be connected to and used in tandem with its analog equivalent, the C1100 Vacuum Tube Preamplifier2. Combining the two together with the included umbilical cable creates the definitive analog and digital stereo preamplifier. When connected, the C1100 takes over all control of the D1100 resulting in a single and easy to use interface. Like the C1100, the D1100’s left and right audio channels and power supplies are electrically isolated from each other to produce true dual mono operation when used either by itself or with the C1100. This isolation delivers absolute stereo separation and sonic purity.

It’s housed in a beautifully polished stainless steel and hairline brushed black Titanium stainless steel chassis – the same as the C1100 so the two will seamlessly blend with each other if used together. A black glass front panel, blue meters, knobs, an illuminated logo and brushed aluminum end caps complete the ageless McIntosh look. It can be paired with a variety of amplifiers, room correction devices, speakers, CD players, streaming audio players and other source components to make a complete home audio system.

Palkinnot & Arvostelut

“As a cherry on top, the sound quality of the McIntosh 2-Channel D1100 Digital Preamplifier is absolutely fantastic. If your system is entirely digital, the D1100 delivers stellar performance worthy of its price point and McIntosh Labs’ rich heritage.”

Tyler Stripko – 28.08.2017 – Hometheatherhifi.com

“The sound quality of a wide range of music played through the D1100 was rich, vibrant and lush, yet incredibly detailed given the right recording. My favorite rock and roll was reproduced in all its grungy glory, with power and fullness. At the same time, more traditional audiophile recordings, played through the McIntosh D1100 DAC, still displayed extreme detail and provided x-ray like information about each performance.”
