  • Advanced AL32 Processing Plus

    The DCD-800NE is equipped with Advanced AL32 Processing Plus, the latest in analogue waveform reproduction technology from Denon. Advanced AL32 Processing Plus utilizes data interpolation algorithms, which support high-resolution audio sources. The algorithm adds in the points that should exist before and after large quantities of data, smoothing out the waveform and restoring information that was lost during the digital recording. The resulting playback is highly detailed, free of interference, richly expressive in the lower range and beautifully faithful to the original sound. Listen to songs as the artist intended.

  • CD, CD-R/RW, MP3, WMA and USB Supported

    Enjoy extended disc and USB support for your modern high-resolution audio collected. The DCD-800NE plays back your CD's, CD-R/RW, MP3 and WMA formats. Or, plug in your USB to hear DSD 2.8 MHz/5.6 MHz, FLAC, WAV, AIFF, ALAC in high-resolution. Listen to your favourite modern hi-res formats and feel the powerful fidelity DCD-800NE provides.

  • Build Integrity with Thoughtfully Selected Components

    With more than a 100-year legacy of designing premium audio components, trust that your Denon product has undergone rigorous testing. The overall aesthetic, sound quality and design integrity of DCD-800NE and its Hi-Fi components are built to last.

Vibration-resistant Design for Pristine Sound

Vibration-resistant design reduces the adverse audio effects of heavy components within amplifiers so that sound quality meets Denon standards. Power transformers are fitted near the bottom of DCD-800NE and immediately above the insulators to prevent unwanted vibration. By lowering the transformer, the vibration surrounding the chassis is reduced, resulting in pristine sound.

DAC Master Clock Design

To accurately synchronize digital circuits, the DCD-800NE is built with a DAC Master Clock design that treats the DAC as the master when clock signals are supplied. Crafted with exceptional quality, the master clock is immediately adjacent to the DAC, which suppresses jitter and ensures optimal precision in D/A conversion. It serves as the reference for semiconductor operation and optimizes digital audio circuitry. Two integrated clock oscillators reduce phase noise, each addressing a sampling frequency (44.1 kHz and 48 kHz). The DAC Master Clock is exceptional for multiple sampling frequencies from 44.1kHz to 192kHz and even up to DSD5.6MHz, without rounding.

Advanced Circuitry with Minimized Signal Paths

The circuit patterns in the DCD-800NE are thoughtfully engineered to make signal paths as short as possible. With shorter circuits, the interference between circuits and left and right channels is reduced, and the adverse influences on audio signals are minimized. As a result, the circuit paths in the DCD-800NE reproduces sound that’s clean, highly transparent and faithful to the original recording.

Pure Direct Mode

Listen with Pure Direct Mode on the DCD-800NE. Pure Direct Mode feeds sound directly to the amplifiers, bypassing any DSP processing that might otherwise color the signal. What you hear is clean, detailed, accurate sound.

Optical and Coaxial Digital Output

The DCD-800NE features one Optical and one Coaxial digital output to connect to the digital input of an amplifier or AV receiver.

100+ Years of Firsts in Audio Technology

Founded in 1910, Denon has a deep heritage of "firsts" in audio technology — from Japan's first audio electronics manufacturer, to producing the world's first commercial CDs. This focused investment in audio R&D ensures you get the latest technology and highest quality with every listening experience"
