Enjoy all your favorite SACD, MP3, and DVD±R/RW discs with the Denon DCD-1600NE Super Audio CD Player. It has a center-mounted, front-loading tray, which will accept most disc types with support for MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV, FLAC, and more file types from CD-R/RW and even from DVD±R/RWs. In addition to CD and Super Audio CD, the DCD-1600NE can play DSD (2.8 / 5.6 MHz) files 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.Pure Direct Mode helps ensure a clean output. An audio cable and remote control are included as an added convenience.

AL32 Processing Plus

The DCD-1600NE is equipped with Advanced AL32 Processing Plus, Denon's analog waveform reproduction technology that is designed to utilize data interpolation algorithms and supports high-resolution sound sources. These algorithms are designed to interpolate points that should exist before and after the points in large quantities of data to help achieve a smooth waveform that is close to that of the original signal. By restoring data that was lost during digital recording, the resulting playback sound is more detailed, virtually free of interference, localized, expressive in the lower range, and faithful to the original sound.

SVH Mechanism

The onboard disc drive design contains Denon's S.V.H. (Suppress Vibration Hybrid) Mechanism. The circuitry that controls the pickup and decodes the signals read from the disc has been developed with shortened signal paths and miniaturized circuits to help ensure that excess current or noise will not occur. An S.V.H. loader of a hybrid construction combining different materials helps provide stability to the disc drive so that the disc can be read with enhanced accuracy. In addition, the mechanism's lower center of gravity helps suppress any vibration occurring inside the mechanism due to disc rotation; the mechanism structure also helps suppress external vibration. By minimizing unwanted vibration, servo-related operations are minimized, allowing digital signals to be read from the disc with augmented accuracy under stable conditions.

Direct Mechanical Ground Construction

The integrity of musical signals deteriorates when they are subject to internal vibration caused by disc rotation or the power transformer, or to airborne vibration caused by sound pressure from the speakers. To guard against such influences, a vibration suppression structure called "Direct Mechanical Ground Construction" was developed. In this design, the power transformers – themselves a source of vibration – have been placed close to one foot of the CD player where unwanted vibration is funneled directly to the shelf and prevented from affecting nearby circuitry. Also, by placing the drive mechanism (the part with the greatest mass) low in the center of the chassis, the low center of gravity effectively absorbs internal vibration caused by disc rotation and also protects the mechanism from external vibration.

DAC Master Clock Design

To help accurately synchronize digital circuits, the DAC Master Clock Design treats the DAC as the master when clock signals are supplied. Positioning the master clock immediately adjacent to the D/A converter (DAC) suppresses jitter and helps ensure optimum precision in D/A conversion. In addition, the quality of the clock, which becomes the reference for semiconductor operation, is important for ensuring that the digital audio circuitry performs at its maximum potential. The DCD-1600NE thus employs a clock oscillator to reduce phase noise that is the displacement of frequencies. The clock power circuit has also been enhanced to augment the clock's performance. A conductive polymer capacitor with high-frequency impedance characteristics has been placed at the base of the clock's power source, and a compact film capacitor has been placed close to the clock, to achieve an improved S/N ratio and transparent sound with enhanced spatial expression. The DCD-1600NE is equipped with two clock oscillators, one for each sampling frequency (44.1 and 48 kHz), that can be switched between the frequencies to provide the right clock for any multiple of these sampling frequencies from 44.1 to 192 kHz, and even up to DSD 5.6 MHz, without the need for rounding, helping to avoid error and ensure proper date conversion.

Short Signal Paths & Separate Power Transformers

The circuit patterns have been designed to help make signal paths as short as possible and ensure that the original sound is faithfully reproduced across the sonic spectrum. As a result, interference between circuits, between left and right channels, and adverse influences on audio signals are minimized, helping to produce a clean, transparent sound. Moreover, the power units for the digital and analog circuits have separate transformers to virtually eliminate mutual interference and noise. An aluminum plate has also been combined to the underside of the steel transformer base to strengthen rigidity

Denon Factory Refurbished

Buying a Denon Factory Refurbished product is a great way to get "as-new" products at a considerable savings. Every product has been thoroughly tested, repaired (if necessary), cleaned and otherwise renewed to original condition. Next it is repackaged with original accessories included. When you consider that a factory-renewed Denon product undergoes such close scrutiny for defects and workmanship, you might actually be buying something that is in many ways better than new. And for your piece of mind and protection, your purchase is covered by a full 1 year parts and labor warranty valid at any authorized Denon repair center (you can look-up locations online here or call 201-762-6665)

Denon, like all electronics manufactures, receives products returned for various reasons. In 2019 consumers returned 17 billion dollars in electronics globally, of which less than 5% were found to be defective! A study revealed 65 percent of respondents decide to return non-defective electronics early on, citing frustration and/or confusion during product unboxing/unpackaging, installation, and first use. Once a product has been opened it must be resold as refurbished and cannot be resold as new again. The history and reason why a product was returned is not provided to us, thus we cant provide any additional details regarding its past. All products are processed by Denon certified technicians, where they are fully tested, repaired (only if necessary), and retested again to ensure the highest quality control. Each unit must pass a complete battery of test before it can be titled a "Denon Factory Refurbished" product.

Most units are Cosmetically in Mint Condition (graded a 9 or higher on a scale of 1-10). Very minor signs of wear (light surface scuffs or minor scratches) may be present, although most units show little or no signs of any usage. We DO NOT sell products that are cosmetically damaged (cracked displays, broken knobs, heavy scratches, or physically abused) unless noted in the description. Unfortunately, we cannot provide actual photos of each unit or pick the best one for anyone, as they are all randomly chosen from our factory sealed boxes.
