Enjoy pristine Hi-Res audio and disc playback with Advanced AL32 Processing and Ultra Precision D/A Converter.
Listen to Hi-Res audio and masterfully reproduced songs with the Denon DCD-1600NE CD Player. Advanced AL32 Processing Plus, combined with an innovative circuitry structure, ensure recordings are accurately reproduced and beautifully faithful to the original sound. In addition to CD and Super Audio CD, the DCD-1600NE can play DSD (2.8 MHz/5.6 MHz) files and high-resolution files up to 192 kHz/24 bits recorded on DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW discs. Play music files with sampling frequencies of up to 48 kHz recorded on CD-R/RW in pristine quality. Vibration-resistant design and Direct Mechanical Ground Construction reduce adverse audio effects of heavy components within amplifiers, providing an audio environment that meets rigorous Denon testing standards. And with a more than 100-year legacy of crafting audio components, trust Denon to bring playback performance to remarkable heights.
ADVANCED AL32 PROCESSING PLUS
The DCD-1600NE is equipped with Advanced AL32 Processing Plus, the latest in analog waveform reproduction technology from Denon. Advanced AL32 Processing Plus utilizes data interpolation algorithms, which support high-resolution audio sources. The algorithms add 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 interferences, richly expressive in the lower range and beautifully faithful to the original sound. Listen to songs as the artist intended.
DSD AND FLAC DISC PLAYBACK SUPPORT
Enjoy extended disc support for your modern high-resolution audio collection. The DCD-1600NE plays back your CD's, Super Audio CD’s and high-resolution files up to 192 kHz/24 bits recorded on DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW discs. Music files with sampling frequencies of up to 48 kHz recorded on CD-R/RW discs can also be played. Listen to your favorite modern hi-res formats and feel the powerful fidelity DCD-1600NE 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-1600NE and its Hi-Fi components are built to last.
DAC Master Clock Design
To accurately synchronize digital circuits, the DCD-1600NE 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 DSD 5.6MHz, without rounding.
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-1600NE and immediately above the insulators to prevent unwanted vibration. By lowering the transformer, the vibration surrounding the chassis is reduced, resulting in pristine sound.
Denon Original Disc Drive Design
The disc drive design of the DCD-1600NE is built with a high-class S.V.H (Suppress Vibration Hybrid) mechanism. New, condensed signal paths and circuitry that control pickup and decode noise are minimized to prevent excess noise and preserve sound quality. The hybrid construction of the S.V.H. loader provides stability in the disc drive, allowing for the decoding and signal reading with the upmost accuracy. The low center of gravity of the mechanism suppresses vibration occurring inside the PMA-1600NE as well as outside the structure. By eliminating excess vibration, servo-related operations are minimized. The reduction of unnecessary controls and current consumption allows for digital signals to be read from the disc with optimal accuracy.
Advanced Circuitry with Minimized Signal Paths
The circuit patterns in the DCD-1600NE 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-1600NE reproduce sound that’s clean, highly transparent and faithful to the original recording.
Optical and Coaxial Digital Output
The DCD-1600NE features one Optical and one Coaxial digital output to connect to the digital input of an amplifier or AV receiver.
Pure Direct Mode
Listen with Pure Direct Mode on the DCD-1600NE. 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.
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.
