D1100 Digital Preamplifier
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 McIntosh has ever used and delivers an unprecedented level of performance so that all digital music is reproduced with exceptional accuracy and authenticity.
Nine inputs are included to keep even the largest digital system connected as 3 optical, 3 coaxial plus 1 each of MCT, AES/EBU and USB inputs are onboard. The USB input accepts up to 32-bit/384kHz signals and supports DSD64, DSD128, DSD256, DXD 352.8kHz and DXD 384kHz playback. All the other inputs accept up to 24-bit/192kHz. Three sets of balanced and unbalanced stereo outputs connect the D1100 to the rest of the audio system.
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. It’s housed in a beautifully polished stainless steel and hairline brushed black Titanium stainless steel chassis. For personal listening, Headphone Crossfeed Director (HXD®) brings a new depth and spatiality to 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 Preamplifier. 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.
