The Musical Fidelity M3SCD player is the latest in Musical Fidelity’s line of high-tech digital solutions. In 1987, Musical Fidelity became the first company to release a digital-to-analog converter. Since then, Musical Fidelity has remained at the forefront of technological advancements. Unique filters, unique performance


Only with the use of advanced technologies is it possible to create truly musical solutions. And only after the company achieved minimal distortion, horizontal amplitude-frequency response, low noise and low jitter in the Musical Fidelity M3CD player, work began on the accents. The first of these is a unique built-in digital streaming filter, which makes an undeniable contribution to the acoustic properties of the device.


The Musical Fidelity M3SCD is equipped with a surge protector that protects against unwanted noise traveling along electrical cables and allows all five independent power supplies to function correctly, regardless of electrical problems. There is no such filter in any other CD player.


The concept of the M3 series initially envisaged a stylish and well-built case with first-class finishing. The side panels of the M3 units are extruded from metal and machined to the highest quality standards. The keys and switches are also machined from metal. All parts are made with the highest precision and fit perfectly. The sound quality of the M3SCD matches its exquisite appearance. The sound of this equipment is smooth, warm and sophisticated, devoid of extraneous coloring. Excellent dynamic range is successfully combined with excellent stability and large power reserves.
