When I listen to a compact disc, I expect crystal-clear sound, and the Denon DCD-1600NE is the type of player that can deliver it. It features state-of-the-art circuitry that reveals fine detail in music discs, inside an efficient, solid, vibration-resistant chassis.
The player’s high-performance 32-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog converter — working with Denon’s AL32 Processing Plus digital filter — helps make your music sound smooth and accurate.
Attention to detail
Denon uses high-quality components to ensure pristine quality when you play a Super Audio CD. Digital and analog power supplies are kept separate to eliminate any loss of sound quality caused by interference and noise between the two.
The player’s drive mechanism features a high-precision Suppress Vibration Hybrid loader that eliminates internal and external resonance for greater stability and accuracy. A DAC master clock keeps timing errors from marring playback. If you want all extra digital processing out of the way, use Pure Direct mode.
The Denon DCD-1600NE offers an optical output and a digital coaxial output. A stereo RCA line output lets you take advantage of the player’s high-quality built-in DAC.
