EMC 1 MK III - discontinued Limited Edition SACD player

Since 1998, Electrocompaniet has produced one of the best sounding CD players on the market, the EMC 1-UP. The new Limited Edition EMC 1 MKIII builds upon this legacy, and brings it into the area of high definition audio. The Limited Edition EMC 1 MKIII is designed for uncompromising playback of standard audio CD and SACD. The player has a high performance sample rate converter, fully balanced D/A converters and discrete analog audio circuitry for excellent performance. It features an unique cancellation system which cancels acoustic / mechanical vibrations, preventing the laser pick-up from receiving unwanted and sonically degrading signals. The audio quality surpassed our own EMC 1 UP, arguably one of the best CD players on the market today.

Product highlights:
    • No-compromise mechanical design with five different housings, which shield analogue, digital, transport, transformer   and controller circuitry.
    • Electromechanical cancellation system which cancels acoustic-mechanical vibrations, preventing the laster pickup from receiving mechanical distortions.
    • Separate transformers and power supplies for analogue and digital circuits.
    • Fully balanced D/A converter with fully balanced discrete analog audio circuitry.
    • Digital outputs via S/PDIF and Toslink.
    •12V trigger input for remote power ON.
    • RS232 port for firmware upgrades and control through a wide range of home installation systems.
    • Soundcare superspikes for the best possible footing.
