Denon Design Series DCD-50 CD Player – Great space saving and neat-looking compact disc player

Adequate but not huge value for money. . This replaced two successive marantz cd players, the second of which only lasted two years. It’s less powerful than its predecessors and so at high volume the sound is a bit coarser, and i wish i could afford something further up the range. Its design is neat and appealing (and small). So overall: it does the job but is a little lacking in oomph. If i could have had another marantz, knowing in advance that it would definitely last at least 4 years , i’d have stuck with that brand and model (65.

Great space saving and neat-looking compact disc player. Whilst i stream a lot of music these days and i’ve ripped my cd’s to my nas drive to play through my speakers, i still like to play my cd’s but didn’t want to go for a large player. This denon fits the bill well as i use it vertically and has the ‘form factor’ in my living room alongside my amp and tt. Sound quality is excellent and i’m enjoying playing my old cd’s again.

Crystal clear sound just perfect. Crystal clear sound just perfect.

I should have searched better. It’s a nice tool if you’re sedentary. I would have preferred having a usb slot and bluetooth output to speakers but hey. I should have searched better. It’s a nice tool if you’re sedentary.

  • Adequate but not huge value for money.
  • Exceptional build quality
  • Great space saving and neat-looking compact disc player

This is another piece of very high quality kit from denon. Build quality is excellent – and the sound, as you’d expect, pretty awesome. Clever design too, with either horizontal or vertical placement possible. I have it paired with a denon pma-50 amp and q acoustics 3020i speakers. And that combination sounds exceptional, especially considering that they are all ‘compact’ components.
