Installation
The MCD550 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 MCD550 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
MCD550 is removed from the custom installation and
used free standing. The required panel cutout, ventilation cutout and unit dimensions are shown.
Always provide adequate ventilation for your
MCD550. Cool operation ensures the longest possible
operating life for any electronic instrument. Do not
install the MCD550 directly above a heat generating component such as a high powered amplifier. If
all the components are installed in a single cabinet, a
quiet running ventilation fan can be a definite asset in
maintaining all the system components at the coolest
possible operating temperature.
A custom cabinet installation should provide the
following minimum spacing dimensions for cool
operation.
Allow at least 2 inches (5.1cm) above the top, 2
inches (5.1cm) below the bottom and 1 inch (2.5cm) on
each side of the SACD/CD Player, so that airflow is
not obstructed. Allow 17 inches (43.2cm) depth behind
the front panel. Allow 1-1/8 inch (2.9cm) in front of
the mounting panel for knob clearance. Be sure to cut
out a ventilation hole in the mounting shelf according
to the dimensions in the drawing.

USB Input Operation with a
Computer
The MCD550 USB Input provides
the capability to playback music
from a computer, when the computer is connected to the rear panel
USB Digital Audio Input Connector. The MCD550 USB Input is
compatible with both PC Computers using Microsoft® Windows®
(XP [SP 3], Vista [SP 1], Windows
7[SP1] and Windows 8) and the
Apple® Macintosh® Computers using OS-10.6 with the latest update.
When using a PC Computer
with Windows or an Apple® Macintosh®, a special McIntosh USB
Audio Software Driver B needs
to be installed on the Computer
before connecting the MCD550
USB Input to an USB Port on the
computer.

Resetting the MCD550
In the unlikely event the MCD550 stops functioning,
first try resetting the Main (System) microprocessor
by performing the following:
1. Simultaneously press and hold in the Front Panel
MUTE and DISC LAYER Push-buttons until
the illumination of the LED above the STAND/

Note: Temporarily, connect the AC Power
Cord coming from the MCD550 into an
AC Power Strip with an On/Off Switch.
Position the AC Power Strip so the On/Off
Switch on the strip is in very close proximity to the MCD550 Front Panel STOP Pushbutton (the MCD550 Remote Control STOP
Push-button will not work for resetting the
micro).
2. Rotate the Track Control Knob clockwise to the
NEXT Track and hold the position, then press and
hold in the STOP< Push-button while at the same
time switching On the AC Power Strip.
