A special anniversary edition SACD/CD player. This special-edition player from Denon treats you to detailed, high-fidelity sound with your disc collection. The DCD-A110 plays both CDs and high-resolution SACDs, plus a wide array of homemade data discs loaded with digital music files. Its built-in 32-bit/384 kHz DAC (digital-to-analog converter) consists of four separate Burr Brown chips working together to reveal an immersive soundstage. Denon's patented drive mechanism makes sure each disc loads quickly and spins precisely.
The player has a solid, vibration-resistant chassis. Pure Direct mode switches off the display and digital output to ensure clean audio playback, and the Ultra AL32 Processing algorithm smooths out digital audio signals for a more accurate and detailed listening experience. Denon spent hours tuning their special 110th anniversary components to rigorous standards, resulting in enhanced musical fidelity. My hands-on experience with the Denon Anniversary Edition DCD-A110. I recently had the opportunity to build a top-notch stereo system to listen to at home.
My main purpose was to demonstrate the Rotel RC-1572 MkII stereo preamp and Rotel RB-1552 Mk II power amplifier, but I have a pretty decent collection of compact discs at home, so I knew I wanted an excellent CD player as one of my sources. I chose the DCD-A110, and I'm glad I did. This player is HEAVY - it weighs over 35 lbs. Which is unusual for a disc player.
I attribute that solid feel to Denon's patented, high-precision Advanced S. (Suppress Vibration Hybrid) mechanism, at least in part. Whether it's weighty or not, it works fantastically well.
I immediately noticed that the action of the tray is smooth and relatively fast - discs load and are ready to play almost immediately after the tray closes. I'm definitely guilty of getting annoyed with even the shortest of waits, but that was never an issue with the DCD-A110. There were a couple of other details I liked. The front panel has a button that allows you to choose which layer of a hybrid SACD to play, which I found handy, since I was testing SACDs at the time - it allowed me to compare the Red Book layer to the HD layer, pretty much in real time. I also enjoyed the solid remote, which featured raised and rounded buttons that were easy to operate.
The sound is very crisp and present. My system included a pair of ELAC Carina BS243.4 speakers on Pangea Audio DS400 stands, and the resulting soundstage was very wide and detailed. I felt like I was sitting at the center of a world of ultra-clear, pristine audio.
The player's Pure Direct mode helps ensure that no noise creeps in. I've used other high-end players that include streaming capability, but I give this one the edge when it comes to doing one job and doing it extremely well - it just plays discs, and it does so with presence and authority.
