Denon DCD-720AE

Denon DCD-720AE CD player

Out Of Stock

"A surprisingly good quality CD player from Denon. There are a few equally adept CD players around at this price but we'd place this one in the top three. A good partner for the PMA-720AE amplifier, it's also good with most other amplifiers around."

The Denon DCD-720AE is straightfoward in many ways. It's good - not exceptional - but very adept at what it does. We like the clean sound it gives out, and think the detail is there, although perhaps not as refined as in some of the Marantz CD players.

It's still a good option though, particularly if you intend to partner it with Denon amplification as they have been tuned to work together, giving a surprisingly refined overall sound. Control and playback is simple as you would expect, and build quality is sufficiently reassuring for a product of this level.

It does work very nicely with the matching PMA-720AE amplifier and it even comes supplied with the phono leads to connect to the two together.

All in all, we wish we could shout about this player but we can't quite - however its certainly one of the better players at this price level. Perhaps stretching your budget a little higher would get you more.
