HighlightsYour benefits
Advanced AL32 Processing PlusExperience audio ‘beautifully faithful to the original sound’. Advanced AL32 Processing Plus algorithms restore information that was lost during the digital recording.
Extended disc format supportEnjoy extended disc support for your high-resolution audio collection, including CDs, Super Audio CDs, as well as DSD and high-res files up to 192kHz/24 bits recorded on DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW discs.
Proprietary disc driveThe Denon original disc drive is built with a S.V.H. (Suppress Vibration Hybrid) mechanism. All elements of the design are focused on delivering optimal accuracy.
Sound Master tunedCarefully tuned with selected audio components and evaluated by the Denon Sound Master to meet Denon’s high standards and distinctive sound for an amazing experience.
DAC Master Clock designThe precisely crafted master clock design includes an oscillator to suppress jitter, ensure peak precision in D/A conversion, and optimise digital audio circuitry.
Vibration-resistant designDesigned to minimise the vibration of the chassis and reduce the adverse audio effects of heavy components so that sound quality meets Denon standards.
Over a century of audio firstsFounded in 1910, Denon has a deep heritage of ‘firsts’ in audio technology.  

Advanced AL32 Processing Plus

The latest in analogue waveform reproduction technology, Advanced AL32 Processing Plus uses data interpolation algorithms, up-sampling, and bit-extension to support high-resolution audio. The resulting playback is highly detailed, free of interference, richly expressive in the lower range, and beautifully faithful to the original sound, according to the maker.

Denon original disc drive design

The disc drive 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 minimised 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 upmost accuracy. The low centre of gravity of the mechanism suppresses vibration both inside and outside the structure. By eliminating excess vibration, servo-related operations are minimised. The reduction of unnecessary controls and current consumption allows for digital signals to be read from the disc with optimal accuracy.

Hi-Res audio support

The ability to decode Hi-Res Audio ALAC, FLAC, and WAV lossless files up to 24-bit/192kHz, as well as DSD 2. 8MHz and 5. 6MHz tracks (the audiophile format of SACD) lets you enjoy each note exactly as the artist intended.

DAC Master Clock design

To accurately synchronise digital circuits, the DAC Master Clock design treats the DAC as the master when clock signals are supplied. The master clock is right next to the DAC, which suppresses jitter and ensures peak precision in D/A conversion. It serves as the reference for semiconductor operation and optimises digital audio circuitry. Two integrated clock oscillators reduce phase noise, each addressing a sampling frequency (44.1kHz and 48kHz).

Pure Direct mode

Pure Direct mode ensures clean, detailed, and accurate audio output.

Advanced circuitry with minimised signal path

Circuit patterns 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 minimised. As a result, the circuit paths in the DCD-1700NE reproduces sound that’s clean, highly transparent, and faithful to the original recording.
