Ultra-Precision 32-Bit/192kHz DAC: The DCD-600NE utilizes a ultra-precision 32-bit/192kHz DAC (digital-to-analog converter) for high accuracy playback and high quality sound reproduction with wide dynamic range, extremely low noise, and no distortion.
AL32 Processing: The DCD-600NE is equipped with AL32 Processing, a proprietary analog waveform reproduction technology from Denon. AL32 Processing utilizes data interpolation algorithms, which 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.
Advanced Circuitry with Minimized Signal Paths: The circuit patterns in the DCD-600NE are thoughtfully engineered to make signal paths as short as possible. With layered circuit boards and 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-600NE reproduce sound that’s clean, highly transparent and faithful to the original recording.
Vibration-Resistant Design: Vibration-resistant design reduces the adverse audio effects of heavy components within amplifiers so that sound quality meets Denon standards. The power transformer is fitted immediately above the insulators to prevent unwanted vibration. By placing the transformer close to the foot, the vibration surrounding the chassis is reduced, resulting in pristine sound. This design is referred to as Direct Mechanical Ground Construction. With a metal bracket connecting the CD mechanism and chassis to the high-density feet, unwanted resonance is further reduced to deliver pristine sound. The DCD-600NE also features a metal chassis to achieve high mechanical stability to suppress vibration caused by disc rotation.
Pure Direct Mode: Listen with Pure Direct Mode on the DCD-600NE. Pure Direct Mode feeds sound directly to the connected receiver or amplifier, bypassing any processing that might otherwise color the signal. What you hear is clean, detailed, accurate sound. In Pure Direct mode, the display turns off and digital audio output stops. This reduces the source of noise that can adversely affect sound quality, enabling high quality playback.
Analog & Digital Outputs: The Denon DCD-600NE is outfitted with both analog and digital audio outputs to connect to your AV receiver, stereo receiver, preamplifier, or integrated amplifier. There is one analog stereo RCA output and one optical (toslink) digital output.
Front-Panel & Remote Control: The supplied IR remote control features an ergonomically-designed layout that includes a cursor keypad, number keypad and dedicated function buttons such as random, repeat, info and program. There are also push-button controls on the front-panel of the CD player to operate Power, Eject, Play/Pause, Stop, and Previous/Next Track. The remote will also operate Source and Volume functions of Denon's Design Series integrated amplifiers (such as the PMA-600NE, sold separately).
Program Playback: From the remote control you can program up to 25 tracks for playback.
Direct Search: You can enter a song track or music file directly using the remote's numeric keypad.
Front-Panel Display: The front-panel display indicates the disc's total tracks and total time, as well as the track number and track time, plus icons for random mode, repeat 1 and repeat all modes, and a folder icon for data discs. The unit does not support song/artist/album info display. The dimmer function features 3 levels of display brightness, adjustable via the remote control
IR In/Out: The 3.5mm IR input and output on the back of the DCD-600NE allows you to control a Denon network audio player (such as the 033DNP800, sold separately) from the included IR remote control.
Auto-Standby: If there is no input signal or operation for approximately 30 minutes, the Denon CD player will automatically go into Standby mode.
