The MCD1000 can be placed upright on a table or shelf
standing on its four feet. It also can be custom installed in a
piece of furniture or cabinet of your choice. The four feet
may be removed from the bottom of the MCD1000 when it
is custom installed as outlined below. The four feet together
with the mounting screws should be retained for possible
future use if the MCD1000 is removed from the custom installation and used free standing. The required panel cutout,
ventilation cutout and unit dimensions are shown.
Always provide adequate

How to Connect
How to Connect
1. Connect a Power Control Cable from the MDA1000
Power Control Out Jack to the POWER CONTROL IN
Jack on the McIntosh MCD1000.
Notes: 1. If the MCD1000 CD Transport is not
connected to a McIntosh MDA1000 D/A
Converter and instead connected to a
McIntosh A/V Control Center with digital
inputs, the MCD1000’s Power Control In
should be connected to the appropriate Power
Control Out Jack on the A/V Control Center.
2. When the MCD1000 and MDA1000 are
connected in a non-McIntosh Preamplifier
System, the Power Control Cable should be
connected from the MCD1000 Power Control
Out to the MDA1000 Power Control In.
2. Connect a Data Control Cable from the MDA1000
Line 1 Switched Data Output Jack to DATA IN Port on
the McIntosh MCD1000.
Note: If the MCD1000 CD Transport is not connected to
a McIntosh MDA1000 D/A Converter and instead
connected to a McIntosh A/V Control Center with
digital inputs, the MCD1000’s Data In should be
connected to the appropriate Data Out Jack on the
A/V Control Center.
3. Connect a Coaxial Digital Cable from the MDA1000
Coaxial 1 Digital Audio Input to either COAXIAL
DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT Jack on the MCD1000.
Note: When the MCD1000 CD Transport is connected to
a McIntosh MDA1000 D/A Converter the Digital
Optical Output or the Balanced Digital XRL
Output may be used instead of the Coaxial Digital
Output. If MCD1000 CD Transport is connected to
a McIntosh A/V Control Center with digital inputs
either the Coaxial or Optical Outputs my be used.
4. Connect the MCD1000 Power Cord to a live AC outlet.
