To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is my second dcd-50. The first one refused to play any of my CD's. It would read them, show the number of tracks and duration, but when I pressed play it would whirr and click for about a minute and then say "unsupported". I phoned Denon they said take it back. I did and then ordered another from Amazon. The new one worked fine for about two weeks and then started to have the same problem. It now refuses to play about 2/3 rds of my CD's including the ones it was happily playing last week! Shame because it looks nice, particularly with the PMA-60 it sits on top of, but unless I am extremely unluckily this product is simply a dud.
Searched for some time to find a CD player that was small, good looking and at the right place. Took some doing but this fits the bill perfectly. Looks incredible and was more than pleasantly surprised by the playback quality. Definitely punches way above it's weight when it comes to sound quality versus price. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this player, especially having lived with it for several months.
Almost all of the CD's I put into this blasted machine said "UNSUPPORTED" - new, old, it didn't matter...hardly any of them worked. To add insult to injury, I have to pay to return it! Rubbish seller (Richer Sounds) - a faulty item and it costs me money....
overall a good cd player. However, when I try to play some of my discs it will not recognize them and just puts up a message on the display " unsupported " which is odd as they play fine on my other cd player. This is a bit of a disappointment as it ruins an otherwise excellent product. After writing this review on 23/02/2021 I decided to turn it on it's side, because you can use it in the horizontal or vertical positions and to my great surprise I tried the discs that would not play in the horizontal played perfectly in the vertical. . . . odd????. anyone know why this should be?
This has an efficient transport and a DAC that is transparent and neutral. What you put in, is what will get processed by your amp. This DAC will not colour the sound from your CDs. So the difference between a good recording and a bad recording will be as clear as night and day. Brilliant.
Very pleased. The sound quality is pretty good relative to the cost. The appearance and size are great. As mentioned in other reviews the loading mechanism is laboured but this is a minor issue. Generally good value.
