DCD-800NE – CD Player with Advanced AL32 Processing Plus
More than a CD player, the DCD-800NE supplies the highest quality audio signals to the amp, and the USB port supports hi-res playback up to PCM192/24 and DSD 2.8 MHz/5.6 MHz. Vibration-resistant design reduces adverse audio effects of heavy components within amplifiers, so sound quality meets Denon standards. And with a more than 100-year legacy of crafting audio components, trust Denon to achieve a hi-res sound that exceeds your expectations.
Advanced AL32 Processing Plus
The DCD-800NE is equipped with Advanced AL32 Processing Plus, the latest in analogue waveform reproduction technology from Denon. Advanced AL32 Processing Plus utilizes data interpolation algorithms, which support high-resolution audio sources. The algorithm adds in the points that should exist before and after large quantities of data, smoothing out the waveform and restoring information that was lost during the digital recording. The resulting playback is highly detailed, free of interference, richly expressive in the lower range, and beautifully faithful to the original sound. Listen to songs as the artist intended.
Vibration-resistant Design for Pristine Sound
Vibration-resistant design reduces the adverse audio effects of heavy components within amplifiers so that sound quality meets Denon standards. Power transformers are fitted near the bottom of DCD-800NE and immediately above the insulators to prevent unwanted vibration. By lowering the transformer, the vibration surrounding the chassis is reduced, resulting in pristine sound.
DAC Master Clock Design
To accurately synchronize digital circuits, the DCD-800NE is built with a DAC Master Clock design that treats the DAC as the master when clock signals are supplied. Crafted with exceptional quality, the master clock is immediately adjacent to the DAC, which suppresses jitter and ensures optimal precision in D/A conversion. It serves as the reference for semiconductor operation and optimizes digital audio circuitry. Two integrated clock oscillators reduce phase noise, each addressing a sampling frequency (44.1 kHz and 48 kHz). The DAC Master Clock is exceptional for multiple sampling frequencies from 44.1kHz to 192kHz and even up to DSD5.6MHz, without rounding.
Advanced Circuitry with Minimized Signal Paths
The circuit patterns in the DCD-800NE are thoughtfully engineered to make signal paths as short as possible. With shorter circuits, the interference between circuits and left and right channels is reduced, and the adverse influences on audio signals are minimized. As a result, the circuit paths in the DCD-800NE reproduce sound that?s clean, highly transparent, and faithful to the original recording.
Pure Direct Mode
Listen with Pure Direct Mode on the DCD-800NE. Pure Direct Mode feeds sound directly to the amplifiers, bypassing any DSP processing that might otherwise color the signal. What you hear is a clean, detailed, accurate sound.
Optical and Coaxial Digital Output
The DCD-800NE features one Optical and one Coaxial digital output to connect to the digital input of an amplifier or AV receiver.
