ID:	24458 Blu-ray players are an integral part of any home theater system and the McIntosh MVP901 is designed to provide years of home entertainment enjoyment. With its ability to upsample 1080P and lower resolutions to 4K Ultra HD, it can breathe new life into one’s vast movie library and is a perfect complement to the 4K compatible MX122 or MX160 home theater processor and a 4K TV.

    Built in decoding of Dolby® True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ will put you in the center of the action. The MVP901 can also pass the latest object-based 3D audio formats such as Dolby Atmos, DTS:X™ and Auro-3D® to your compatible processor for truly encompassing surround sound. It fully supports 3D Blu-ray discs while state of the art processing power allows for ultra-fast playback start speeds. A variety of advanced adjustments can be made to color, image detail and video performance to improve picture quality.

    Not limited to just movies, the MVP901 is also great for listening to music. CDs, SACDs and DVD-Audio discs can be enjoyed through balanced or unbalanced analog outputs that utilize an 8-channel, 32-bit/192kHz DAC that’s used in stereo quad balanced mode to produce high fidelity audio. The HDMI output can be used for multi-channel music playback. A triple laser optical pickup uses one objective lens for the different wavelengths and is optimized for various disc types. Three USB ports (1 front/2 rear) allow playback of audio and video files from flash drives. Network streaming and BD-Live is available through the ethernet connection.

    The MVP901 incorporates timeless McIntosh design cues. It can easily be paired with a variety of McIntosh amplifiers, home theater processors, speakers and other components to make a complete and cohesive looking home theater system. Contact your local dealer​ to learn more. ​

    looks pretty nice! we need more high-end universal disc players IMHO. A few questions, though:

    price?

    direct DSD decoding, or conversion to PCM first?

    what make/model of DAC chip?

    What sort of files can play through the USB inputs: i.e., FLAC? gapless play? decoding of Dolby True-HD and DTS-HD Master Audio?

        Hah! missed that possibility, although it may just be a spec oversight since it will upsample; that doesn't necessarily mean the discs are supported.

      The cynic in me wonders what's inside the cover given historical hi end DVD players. Of mor einterest is the new phono stage with an ADC. BTW has anyone else received the emial form World of McIntosh and showing their new brownstone in SOHO? Could be an interesting audio hangout.

        Surprised to see investment in such players as the future is streaming. I suppose there is sufficient demand for mass market BRPs but for high end brands like MC, I'd be skeptical.

          The future is streaming, but it's likely to be many years, perhaps a decade or more for enough bandwidth to be cheaply and widely available to stream a 4k UHD movie with a DTS-HD soundtrack. It may be hard for some to believe but there are millions of people in the US today who are limited (and not by their choice) to download speeds of 1.2 MB/s, barely DVD quality.

            Funny thing though is CDs are still very big in Asia.

              Great point, not to mention around the world.

              We often forget, things have to be designed to the lowest connection speeds. Back in the late '90s, wanted to set up a website for my magazine that would have had real time interviews, live visits to manufacturers, etc but just wasn't feasible back then. Even doing a "movie" was impossible. Plus back then, there was no way to make an online magazine look like a print magazine. But you have to think ahead as eventually the hardware will catch up to the ideas.

              Just like the Human Genome Project. At the beginning, it took years to sequence a genome. Yet the people in charge of the Human Genome Project knew 10 years down the road, they would able to speed up the sequencing with new technology and other developments. Now it takes a day to do what might have taken two years, twenty years ago.
