Do you really price match?
We will match any e-Commerce (Online store) Authorized USA Dealer's advertised price. Please call us toll free (877) 370-1972 and alert us to where you found the product cheaper. We will verify, and if the site is an Authorized US Dealer- we will match their price. However, if the price is below the manufacturer Minimum Advertised Price (MAP)- we will have to get authorization to match the price. We will not violate our signed agreements that we have with our vendors.
What about price matching from an auction site?
We do not price match any auction or "grey market" site.
Be advised, any purchases from an auction or unauthorized (grey market) websites can lead to future issues in regards to warranty or support. Most manufacturers will not honor any claims or warranty from these type of sales. Spend your money wisely by purchasing from an Authorized Dealer. In a lot of cases, saving a little bit of money can cost you more after the sale is completed.
We offer a 30 Day Return Policy should you choose to return a product for any reason.
Since 1972 Sound Approach has backed all items that we sell. If the product you have purchased is not right for you, let us know. We strive to find the right product for your unique situation. We will work with you to find a sound solution and recommend what product will resolve your issue. That being said, we will credit, refund, or exchange any product you purchase within 30 days of your purchase.
Certain products, may be returned, but are subject to a restocking fee of 20%. Please contact us to determine, before ordering, if the item will fall into this category. Usually it is for the high-end electronics & audiophile-grade speakers. We want to make sure that we match you with the correct product, so please call and speak to any of our technical experts prior to ordering.
Four Important Conditions:
1. We need to get the original box, manuals, and any materials that came with the product for you to receive a full refund- with no re-stocking charges. The item/product must still be in like-new condition.
2. If the item had Free Shipping and you are returning a non-defective product, the original shipping cost will be deducted from the total that will be refunded back.
3. Special Ordered items are not returnable (see below).
4. Once an RMA is issued- it is valid for 10 business days. After 10 days, the RMA is canceled and returns will not be accepted.
Shipping and handling charges cannot be reimbursed unless it is our mistake. Yes, we can make mistakes – not often, but it can happen.
Denon - DCD-1600NE - Advanced AL32 Processing CD Player
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 utmost 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.
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.
