The Music Center 1, the first music server from Métronome. The internal CD player/burner allows CD ripping, and you can store all your downloads on the internal memory disks (from 1 terabyte to optional 8 terabytes).

Numeric inputs : ethernet, 2 USB

Numeric outputs : USB, S/PDIF, AES/EBU, Toslink

Handled formats : FLAC, WAV, DSD, MP3.43_music_center_closeup5_bd

The CD8 S, DSD DAC and top-range CD player CD8 S is the latest generation of integrated devices assuring a double function of DAC and CD player.
“The converter part is completely new on this device, which makes a deep change in the electronic design of our machines” says Metronome. The DAC can now also be used with S/P DIF input as well as with asynchronous USB input.
The CD player is based on the Philips CD Pro transport. The new DAC range from Métronome laboratories was unveiled at CES in January 2015, and includes the latest numeric technologies (DSD 64 to 512). DSD is read in their native form.45_cd8_s_top_front2_lr
