CD Player of the Year under $5000"And purity is indeed the result — thrilling musical presentation from a machine clearly built to Denon’s highest standards while still looking elegant — part-modern, part classic Japanese."

Hi Fi News Highly Commended“Whatever appeals to you (or me, for that matter) about Denon’s DCD-2500NE, be it the no-nonsense minimalism or simply the wonderful sound, this machine is a triumph. Sure, I lust after an Esoteric at five or more times the price, but the Law of Diminishing Returns sorts that out for most of us. This is simply a joy to use in every way, the sonics are superb and I could even learn to live without XLRs. SACD lives!”
