Key Technologies

  • HI-Res Audio The ability to decode Hi-Res Audio ALAC, FLAC and WAV lossless files up to 24-bit/192-kHz, as well as DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz tracks (SACD) lets you enjoy each note exactly as the artist intended.
  • Advanced AL32 Processing Plus Advanced AL32 Processing Plus utilizes data interpolation algorithms, up-sampling, and bit-extension to support high-resolution audio that is free of interference and faithful to the original sound.
  • Prude Direct Mode Pure Direct mode turns the display and the digital outputs off to minimize interference that might color the audio signal. What you hear is clean, detailed, accurate sound.
  • Advanced circuitry The circuit patterns have been engineered to make signal paths as short as possible, reducing interference to reproduce sound that’s clean, highly transparent, and faithful to the original recording.
  • Denon original disc drive design The disc drive is built with a high-class S.V.H (Suppress Vibration Hybrid) mechanism. New, condensed signal paths and circuitry are minimized to prevent excess noise and preserve sound quality.
  • DAC Master Clock Design Crafted with exceptional quality, the master clock is immediately adjacent to the DAC, which suppresses jitter and ensures optimal precision in D/A conversion.
  • Direct Mechanical Ground Construction In this design, the power transformers have been placed close to the product's feet where unwanted vibration is funneled directly to the ground and prevented from affecting nearby circuitry.
  • DSD Support Supports DSD (2.8 Mhz / 5.6 MHz) files and high-resolution files up to 192 kHz / 24 bits recorded on DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW discs.

Do the sacd players go on sale like the current promotion on receivers? Interested in this product but of course sale prices are a great motivator.

Asked by: metalfan
Hello, The current promotion on receivers is for the outgoing models, as they have since been replaced. The DCD-1700NE is a very new addition to our line-up. At some point it may appear as a refurbished item at a reduced price, but it is mere speculation as we can never be sure which models will appear among our refurbished items.

Acabp de comprar este producto, tengo problemas con la bandeja de deposito del CD, dejo de trabajarme no abre y me da el siguiente mensaje System Error, espero me den la solucion inmediata

Asked by: Carlos G
Hello, I recommend doing a soft reset. This involves unplugging your DCD-1700NE from it's power source for 15 minutes and then power-up again. If this does not solve the issue, please contact your dealer for assistance.

Does this covert the SACD layer into PCM before playback? Or does the internal DAC keep the DSD file unaltered for playback? Thanks.

Asked by: Kbot
Hi Kbot, That's a good question. With the DCD-1700NE, the information on the SACD layer does not get converted to PCM prior to analog conversion.

what are differences or Improvements between this model & the former DCD - 1600NE model ?

Asked by: gadame1
I have been trying to find an answer to this question too and as far as specs they are exactly the same from info provided by Denon itself.  As far as gold plated RCA inputs I can’t confirm but if that is the only difference then its trivial and certainly not worth an upgrade.

How do I connect headphones to this cd player? Do we need an amplifier like the Denon PMA-1700NE? If so, what cable should I use to connect the DCD-1700NE to the PMA-1700NE?

Asked by: GlorytheWiz825
Hello, The PMA-1700NE is the matching integrated amplifier for the DCD-1700NE, and would be a very suitable way to allow for headphone use, as the DCD-1700NE does not have a headphone port. The recommended way to connect the two components for the best performance would be to use a good quality set of analog interconnects.

What's the best connection with the AVR-X3700H, optical or rca.

Asked by: Td alaska
Hello, When connecting the DCD-1700NE to an AVR-X3700H, it is recommended to use analog RCA interconnects. This allows you to enjoy not just CDs, but also Super Audio CDs - which is a playback feature of the DVD-1700NE. Optical and coaxial digital outputs do not support SACD (DSD) information transfer.
