Disc Compatibility: The Denon DCD-900NE player supports playback of CD Audio discs, as well as CD-R and CD-RW data discs. It offers playback of MP3, AAC, and WMA audio files (up to 320kbps/48kHz) on CD-R and CD-RW discs.
Front-Panel USB Port: In addition to CD playback, the DCD-900NE features a front-panel USB-A port for playback of a variety of compressed and high-resolution audio files stored on a USB MSC (mass storage class device), such as a USB Stick. The unit supports playback of MP3, AAC, WMA compressed music files (up to 320kbps/48kHz); as well as high resolution ALAC (up to 24-bit/96kHz), AIFF (up to 24-bit/192kHz), FLAC (up to 24-bit/192kHz), WAV (up to 24-bit/192kHz), and DSD (up to 5.6MHz) audio files.
Note: The front-panel USB port does not support playback from Apple iOS and Android devices, USB hubs and card-readers, or computers.
ES9018K2M DAC with Master Clock: The DCD-900NE employs a 2-channel 32-bit/192kHz ES9018K2M DAC (digit-to-analogue converter) for high accuracy playback and high quality sound reproduction with wide dynamic range, extremely low noise, and no distortion. To accurately synchronize digital circuits, the DCD-900NE 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.
Advanced AL32 Processing Plus: The DCD-900NE 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 algorithms add 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 interferences, richly expressive in the lower range and beautifully faithful to the original sound. Listen to songs as the artist intended.
Advanced Circuitry with Short Signal Paths: The circuit patterns in the DCD-900NE 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-900NE reproduce sound that's clean, highly transparent and faithful to the original recording.
Vibration-Resistant Design: The DCD-900NE's vibration-resistant design reduces the adverse audio effects of heavy components so that sound quality meets Denon standards. Power transformers are fitted near the bottom of the DCD-900NE and immediately above the insulators to prevent unwanted vibration. By lowering the transformer, the vibration surrounding the chassis is reduced, resulting in pristine sound.
Pure Direct Mode: Listen with Pure Direct Mode on the DCD-900NE. Pure Direct Mode feeds sound directly from the CD player to your integrated amplifier or AV receiver, bypassing any DSP processing that might otherwise colour the signal. What you hear is clean, detailed, accurate sound. In Pure Direct mode, the display turns off and digital audio output stops. This reduces the source of noise that can adversely affect sound quality, enabling high quality playback.
Analog & Digital Outputs: The Denon DCD-900NE is outfitted with both analogue and digital audio outputs to connect to your AV receiver, stereo receiver, preamplifier or integrated amplifier. There is one analogue stereo RCA output, one Optical (Toslink) digital output, and one Coaxial (SPDIF) digital output.
Front-Panel Display: The front-panel display indicates the disc's total tracks and total time, as well as the track number and track time, plus icons for random mode, repeat 1 and repeat all modes, and a folder icon for data discs. The unit does not support song/artist/album info display. The dimmer function features 3 levels of display brightness, adjustable via the remote control.
Front-Panel & Remote Control: The supplied IR remote control features an ergonomically-designed layout that includes a cursor keypad, number keypad and dedicated function buttons such as random, repeat, info and program. There are also push-button controls on the front-panel of the CD player to operate Power, Eject, Play/Pause, Stop, and Previous/Next Track. The remote will also operate Source and Volume functions of a Denon integrated amplifier.
Program Playback: From the remote control you can program up to 25 tracks for playback.
Direct Search: You can enter a song track or music file directly using the remote's numeric keypad.
IR In/Out: The Denon DCD-900NE is outfitted with an IR input (3.5mm) and IR output (3.5mm) for installing an optional IR repeater system (sold separately).
Auto-Standby: If there is no input signal or operation for approximately 30 minutes, the Denon CD player will automatically go into Standby mode.
Over A Century Of Audio Firsts: Founded in 1910, Denon has a deep heritage of "firsts" in audio technology. This focused R&D investment ensures you get the latest technology and highest quality with every listening experience.
As Japan’s first audio electronics manufacturer and with a deep legacy of firsts, Denon is absolutely one of the longest running audio companies emanating from Japan. Founded in 1910, their aim has always been to enable the entertainment moments that matter through the relentless pursuit of quality, innovation and audio performance and Audio Trends teamed up with Denon way back in 1982. Even then, we had difficulties keeping up with demand because they just couldn't physically produce enough gear for the world market! How have they been so successful over decades and still are up with the best in mass-produced audio components when the market has become very crowded?
Innovative engineering and technology are at the core of what makes a Denon product so iconic. Through a disciplined approach to design and production, their Japanese based engineers ensure that only superb craftsmanship, precision engineering and impeccable performance go into every component. The creation of products that can deliver total quality enjoyment to others is a fundamental driving passion and the main reason why they exist. What’s more, their constant quest to create the perfect entertainment component is the key to transforming creative ideas into leading innovation, and to anticipating consumer needs. In recent times, this has included the development of mobile technologies, so that customers can enjoy the best possible quality reproduction in any format.
For everyone at Denon, Passion, Artistry, and Technology are more than buzzwords – they are part of the quintessential philosophy behind everything they do. These three elements and decades of innovation and engineering excellence have shaped their entire culture. Every detail of a Denon product is crafted around these elements with a single goal in mind: to maximise the entertainment experience. It is worthy of note that Denon is distributed in Australia by Sound United who are the international owners of the brand so after-sales-service is readily available if required.
