DENON DCM - 500AE PDF

A high-value, well-made player that delivers warm, full sound with a fine midband For Tonally on the warm side Full bass and well contrived midband Against A little soft around the edges, especially at the frequency extremes While Denon has long been a major name in component high fidelity in the Far East, it has only recently re-established itself as a source of hi-fi components in Europe. It started at the high end a couple of years or so ago and is only now finishing its portfolio at the entry level, which includes the model tested here. The main difference is that the DCDAE is stripped down, with a more limited feature set - it lacks some of the funkier features like pitch control. The other major difference is that where the senior players are built in Japan, the AE is made in China, with a predictable impact on the selling price. How low can you go? The two players are built to much the same standard, however.

A high-value, well-made player that delivers warm, full sound with a fine midband For Tonally on the warm side Full bass and well contrived midband Against A little soft around the edges, especially at the frequency extremes While Denon has long been a major name in component high fidelity in the Far East, it has only recently re-established itself as a source of hi-fi components in Europe. It started at the high end a couple of years or so ago and is only now finishing its portfolio at the entry level, which includes the model tested here.

The main difference is that the DCDAE is stripped down, with a more limited feature set - it lacks some of the funkier features like pitch control. The other major difference is that where the senior players are built in Japan, the AE is made in China, with a predictable impact on the selling price. How low can you go? The two players are built to much the same standard, however. In fact, the DCDAE is a surprisingly chunky player, with the mechanism and drawer mounted amidships, and with the same neatly rounded extruded alloy fascia.

The control system has a limited set of well-disposed control buttons, and highly legible labels, rather than the grey on grey scheme that has become so unaccountably popular in some quarters.

The player really does look like a high-quality item, aided and abetted by an attractive fluorescent display and a well designed remote control, an impression reinforced by the smooth drawer action. The Denon player is an excellent all-purpose design that can be used with virtually any low cost components system.

The bass is unusual for a low-cost player in being on the full, slightly warm side of absolute neutrality. Almost certainly it is the bass that contributes to the warmth and also to the perceptibly rich, well varied tonality, but these are precisely the kind of qualities that will sit well in the kind of system the DCDAE was intended to complement.

There is no hint of the thin imagery that seems to be a speciality of some lesser CD players - it all happens with unfailing decorum. The story here is a simple one. The Denon is exceptionally well priced for a premium brand player, and exceptionally well turned out in the ways described above.

It also delivers a thoroughly enjoyable listening experience, which should sit comfortably with virtually any lowish-cost components based system.
