Smooth, good looks and the sound quality to match; the Denon DCD520AE is an impressive CD player.

Pure, distortion-free sound

Denon conducted rigorous listening tests to decide upon the DAC and electrical layout of the DCD520AE - and it's been time well spent. The high precision 32-bit/192kHz DAC is the same type as used in Denon's more expensive products. The precise master clock ensures very low rates of jitter for a pure, distortion-free sound. Obsessive attention to detail, such as the shortest electronic signal paths and central draw mechanism, all combine to create a CD player that's low on distortion but high on musical energy.

Vibration-resistant design
In addition to the solid casing, the DCD520AE features insulated power supplies sited close to the ground, which helps reduce the chance of the sensitive electrical components being compromised by noise and vibration from the transformer. The aluminium front panel also reduces electrical interference, especially from sources such as light dimmers and fluorescent bulbs. As you'd expect from Denon, the quality of finish is impeccable, with smooth edges, solid construction and damped controls.

Plays a wide range of discs
An optical digital output lets you upgrade to a higher quality DAC at a later date or use the CD player with a digital amp or recorder. The DCD520AE will also play a wide range of discs and even has a folder mode function for MP3/WMA files. The ergonomically designed remote control is compatible with other Denon products and gives full access to programming, repeat and random play modes. Finally, this Denon CD player has a very low stand-by power consumption and auto power off for decent energy efficiency.

With its smooth, powerful sound, unrivalled construction quality and useful range of features, the Denon DCD520AE is a tough act to beat.
