Product Description

To faithfully reproduce the original sound, the DCD-520AE is endowed with a wide range of audio technology that Denon has developed and refined over the years. For a sound that surpasses the quality expected in its class, Denon engineers have carefully selected parts for the audio section, the power unit and other areas on the basis of their contribution to high sound quality. The patterns for the digital circuits have been specially designed to provide maximum protection from unwanted radiation and achieve low impedance. Denon engineers used rigorous listening tests to select the DCD-520AE’s high-precision 32-bit/192 kHz D/A converter. This converter and the audio circuit design that Denon has developed over many years masterfully reproduces the delicate nuances of music in the audio signal.

This CD player (black) looks very stylish. In fact it looks better than many more expensive CD players. The motor is almost silent. Programming the tracks is simple. Instructions are included in a booklet (and CD ROM). 2 short leads are included to connect to an amplifier or other equipment. No headphone socket. Remote control with batteries included. It worked straight out of the box.

Brought this after my old CD Player finally died. It is partnered with a Pioneer Amp and Denon Speakers, and I have to say, " Wow ". What a cracking CD Player for the money. Just as good if not better than CD Players twice it's price that I had listened to before purchasing this one.
Lovely smooth & punchy bass and very clear mid range and treble.
Looks smart and stylish and just the right amount of buttons on the front panel that you need.
No it doesn't have a headphone socket, but if you want that then just use your Amp for that.
I have never used headphone sockets on other equipment with them, only the Amp, so no big problem there.
Well worth the money, buy one if you are thinking about replacing your old machine. You won't be disappointed......

I bought this CD player to replace my old Marantz CD65 which had given up the ghost after 27 years. Because of the low price, I wasn't expecting much. However, on learning that it plays mp3 files as well as normal CDs, I burned a CD full of mp3's to try it out. Not only does it play them without trouble, but there is also a random play or shuffle button on the remote that when activated absolutely delighted me, playing all day without needing to change the CD. Needless to say, it also plays my regular CD's with a nice sound. I'm well happy!

I got this to go with my PMA520AE amplifier (the picture shows the amp. instead of the CD player) also purchased from via Amazon.It looks good with the amp.Good build quality and it sounds good to me. It's the simplest connection/setup I've ever done.

Denon DCD520AE CD Player - Black I purchased this item through Amazon, express delivery, very good if you don't want to wait in for the delivery man day after day, thoroughly recommended. As for the player, can't fault it, quick to connect up and working in minutes. I had been playing my CD's through a blue ray unit and had been undecided about purchasing a dedicated unit, glad I did, it's superb. It seems (to my ears) to match up very well with Wharfdale Diamonds and a Yam Sub (thro a Samsung A/V amp) and my neighbours can now listen to and enjoy my CD collection! If you are in the market for a CD player without paying silly prices then go for this one, I love it.

Having had perfect service from Denon equipment for about 15 years, I confidently ordered this CD player to replace an ancient Technics CD player that had died. Prompt delivery from Amazon was welcome however, after a few weeks, it started to stall midway through CDs with the only way of progressing being to switch off the player. Amazon quickly replaced it and picked up the faulty player. The new CD player would play no CDs at all and it instantly went back to Amazon for a refund this time. I'm very disappointed at Denon for releasing potentially faulty equipment and feel that their quality control is seriously lacking. It surely cannot be difficult to manufacture a comparatively simple piece of hi-fi equipment within this price range although I have read that there is little difference internally between a cheap CD player and an expensive one.

Full marks for Amazon for their handling of the matter and if I could give less than one star for Denon I would do so regarding my experience on this occasion.

The problem is what do I buy now!
