Product Description

The Denon DCD-900NE CD Player improves on the DCD-600NE with a master clock system that suppresses jitter and provides a more accurate signal for the DAC. There is also the innovative AL3 processing system that can play hi-res files that are accurate to the original sound.

Two optical inputs are provided and there is a front-mounted USB socket for connecting and charging devices. Notably, the CD transport has a stable and well-engineered design that provides the best possible signal for the built-in quality DAC. Lastly, there is a fully featured remote control.

What is the AL32 circuit?

The AL32 circuit is used by the Denon DCD-900NE CD Player upsamples lower resolution signals such as the PCM signal from a standard CD. Interpolation algorithms are used to create a hi-res stream even from older formats. This provides a smooth and detailed sound.

This unit is more than just a CD player. Inputs are provided to connect external hi-res digital sources. These include optical and coaxial inputs. Notably, hi-res files at up to 192kHz. 24-bit can be played. The DSD format is also supported. This is used by SACDs.

Accurate master clock

The Denon DCD-900NE CD Player has an accurate master clock that sits directly next to the DAC. The clock is used to control the timing of all the DAC functions. Its accuracy is important as a varying clock signal can lead to excess jitter and mushy sound.

High build quality

The Denon DCD-900NE CD Player is built with precision and high attention to detail. The power transformers are mounted at the bottom of the enclosure. This ensures that no vibration or stray magnetic fields can interfere with the sensitive preamp circuits.

Also, the circuit board traces have been kept as short as possible to avoid any noise pickup. This creates a sound that is faithful to the original recording with no colouration. Lastly, pure direct mode turns off the display and digital processing for an even better playback performance.

Why CDs?

Many people still have large collections of CDs and the Denon DCD-900NE CD Player provides the best of both worlds, with quality CD transport and modern hi-res capability. However, CDs are recorded using 16 bits at a 44.1 kHz sampling rate. As a result, this unit upscales the signal using the AL32 system. Modern CD players often upscale legacy formats for a smoother sound.
