A former $4,000 player that has killed 5 figure competition, this unit still packs a powerful punch. Tons of detail and great soundstaging, this universal player casts enormous and beautiful, wall-to-wall images with my Thiel 2.4S. Capable of 24bit/96kHz resolution, the players’ DACs can really create gorgeous, grain free sound, especially with DVD-A and SACD disks. See the 6moons review for a professional perspective on the unit: http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/exemplar/denon.html. Externally, the player has two very small dings in the faceplate, and a light scratch on the left side; none of which are visible from a couple feet away. There is also a small operational issue… when cold, the player can be finicky about reading disks, this issue goes away after about 1 minute, shortly after the tubes have warmed. I only found out about this issue after leaving my system unplugged while away for the holidays (at 55 degrees). The current price reflects these issues. This unit has the optional Siltech wiring (a $450 option) and comes with an extra set of 1966 Phillips E180CC tubes (see pics). Original box, manual, and remote included.
At my price, I’ll cover paypal fees. Buyer pays for shipping.
