The M3scd has been designed to give outstanding CD reproduction and to be a digital hub. In addition to CD, it has 3 digital inputs: coax, optical and asynchronous USB. This makes it particularly useful for TV sound improvement. The technical performance is excellent; it has very low distortion, extremely low jitter, excellent signal-to-noise ratio, extremely flat frequency response, exemplary linearity and excellent channel separation.
All in all the M3scd gives excellent CD replay and can act as a versatile digital hub at the same time.
