Audio Test"If you're looking for down-to-earth honesty in reproduction, without the sound impression being sterile or characterless, then this DCD and PMA-2500NE luxury chain from Denon is definitely highly recommended. Bad mixes are unmistakably unmasked here, but if that sound material is of high quality, you can ever adjust to a listening pleasure that is second to none."
HiFi Choice“Voices are close focused, soundstages have realistic width and depth to them, with excellent front-to-back layering and despite the powerful yet tightly controlled bass here, there’s no shortage of insight into everything from the touch of a finger on string to the shimmer of cymbal…”
